MENTAL FITNESS IN THE GYM
When asked to move an external load from A to B, it’s natural to put all of your focus into completing the task and lose focus on what the body is actually doing, especially when you are fatigued during a workout.
Our intention with the Mindful Focus to cultivate a stronger connection between your mind and body. There are 5 Mindful Focus points that align with our 6 week strength cycle. By the final week of the 6 week cycle you will have had the opportunity to practice each mindful focus point and are ready to put it all together with maximum resistance.
Star Moment – Optimizing your Time at the Gym
Every time you arrive at the gym, Acknowledge there is a challenge ahead. Recognize your thoughts and how you are framing the challenge in your mind. Visualize yourself performing to the best of your ability and giving everything you have to give that day. Tackle the challenge, actually do the work.
At the final stretch of the workout, when fatigued and ready to back off, your coach will remind you of the STAR MOMENT. An opportunity for you to dig deep, lean in to the challenge at hand, to remember why you’re here and push through because if you do.. you will get to where you want to be, and you’re almost there.. keep going. In just a few minutes, you will be finished and can move forward with your day PROUD of what you’ve accomplished! When the clock runs out, pause and Reflect, you did it! You badass!
Rinse and Repeat.
Each time you come to the gym, practice this repetitive thought pattern until it sticks.
Eventually you will find yourself responding to challenges out in the real world in the same way. Knowing it’s hard, but feeling confident and performing to the best of your ability, because you trained your mind to show up strong in the face of resistance.
