training philosophy

Do what makes you happy. Life is too short to stress about where you think you should be. Just soak it all in and be grateful for each day. Be kind, especially to yourself. Accept that every training session isn’t going to be as ideal as you set it out to be – we are human beings, not robots.

If you get yelled at by your boss at work, your partner was annoyed at you, you’re having a rough day, you might not perform everything you set out to in your program that day, and that’s OK. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but a brick was laid every day. You have the opportunity to lay a brick that will build yourself into what you’re setting out to achieve. If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it, so track your progress. And if you’re unsure, get a professional to show you the way. Last but not least, walking to the gym is not a warm up 😉
