Take what I’ve said above and apply this when you step into the gym. You need to learn to approach each and every workout, every set and rep for the next 12 weeks with an enthusiastic and positive attitude. Believe that all your sessions are going to be productive. Learn to enjoy the pain and embrace the workouts, as they will bring you closer to your goals. It won’t be easy, so don’t expect it to be – if getting into shape was easy, then we’d all be walking around like Greek Gods.
I need you to focus when you’re in the gym. Switch off from work, concentrate on what you’re doing and why you’re there. Hold your head up high, make the gym your temple and a place where problems don’t exist. Remember why you’re there and what you’ve set out to achieve and remember that this is the one place where failure can be a good thing.
Don’t get distracted by others and what they’re doing, stick to the plan and own your workouts. Afterwards, you can pat yourself on the back and remember, there are many more workouts to come.
Not all of your sessions may feel to you like a success, but never dwell on this. Every step, however small, is a step forward, so stand tall, learn the lessons and move on, never sulk! Have faith in your abilities.
“Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail”
You must believe that you’re capable of completing this program and with that belief, your confidence will continually grow as confidence comes within.
If you think you can, YOU WILL!!
