It's certainly getting colder and wet in Perth and you may feel like hibernating right now. However this is the best time to be working out in preparation for the hot summers we have here. To combat the cold you want to be exercising to feel energised in the dark months, getting in shape and losing weight ready for your bikini months.
The thought of venturing out to the gym may not seem the most appealing option, so why not workout at home. Personal training in clients homes in Perth is something I do everyday and the results are amazing! With a bit of creativity, you can bring fitness into your home and not even have to step into a gym.
After years of personal training, I have seen that the number one key factor in achieving your long term fitness and even life goals is Mental Toughness! Mental toughness may come natural to some but for others it is analysing your current mental state and motivation and cognitively changing the way you think and make decisions, when it comes to your fitness. That piece of chocolate or scoop of ice cream may look really tempting but what do you want more? It takes mental toughness to say no and walk away, thinking of the bigger picture, It takes mental toughness to squeeze that extra workout into your busy week. How do we enhance our mental toughness?
Many of us like to skip this part of our training after an intense strength training session. This may be because you don't have the time or you may not even see the point in stretching. If I told you that it would you get you better results enhancing your performance and muscle growth, would you change your mind? If you've made the time to exercise then you must make the time to stretch! But why?
