Fitness Canberra Latest Poll – lazy vs tired

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Well some quite disturbing news on the latest fitness poll we have been doing!!

Here are some of the numbers:

25% of voters are just too lazy to train at all

18% of voters say they are too tired to train

16% of voters say they hate to train on their own

So my qestion to you is how do you fix these problems?

Well here at Succeed Personal Training Canberra we definately have the answers and can fix ALL the problems!!

I can understand that at various times in our lives we undergo a heavy work load, or a stressful home/family life, which can affect your training or even your desire to train, but at the end of the day we are only on this wonderful universe once, and many of us are not living to our full potential.

You see the less you do, the less you want to do! Then you will become more tired and even lazier than you already are! NOT GOOD!!!

So how do we fix these problems we experience each day? Easy… don’t think about it, DO IT…. most people spend so much time thinking about getting off their arse and doing something, that if they had of started when they had started thinking about it, they would already been in shape!

All you need is 30 mins, 3 or 4 times a week into your schedule. You make time to eat & sleep, well training is just as important.

Why you ask?

By undertaking any form of training regime you will automatically start to feel better and have more energy for the everyday grind (a good thing indeed). It will make all the issues in your life somewhat smaller and at the end of the day, we all need to let things go. We harbour so much stress, worry, anger, resentment etc in us that it is not healthy at all, and certainly won’t help you lose weight or trim up a bit. The more stressed you are the more likely you are to put bodyfat on!!

In regards to the last point of the fitness poll. If you hate training on your own, then Succeed Personal Training have the answer for you!

We have a choice of outdoor Bootcamp Canberra sessions, or group Personal Training available at Club Lime Tuggeranong, Alive Health Clubs Narrabundah and Queanbeyan, and of course we can do the PT outdoors.

With Christmas just around the corner and New Years resolutions due out soon, why not make a difference to either yourself or someone you know and book yourself in for a FREE trial of either Boot Camp or Group Personal Training. Why not buy someone a gift voucher, whether for Boot Camp or PT?

Simply send in your details and one of our staff will contact you to arrange your session: contact us

I started doing spin at Club Lime Tuggeranong gym last year. If you’ve ever done stationary cycling you know how gruelling it can be. It’s a deep pain and extremely exhausting (for anyway).

 That little bike can dish out quite a punch. It is a great workout.

It’s been over a year now. I’ve been cycling once per week to get into better shape. It’s worked!

When I first started cycling I used to hate climbing. Climbing is when you crank up your gear shift (resistance) on the bike. You crank it so you literally have to jump out of your seat to hammer down those pedals and keep moving.

It takes every ounce of energy and effort to keep moving forward. It tests your will and your mind. Walking down a set of steps after this work out is not an option. Welcome to the climb.

I almost fell off the bike once when climbing. It was my fourth week cycling and we were running a climbing circuit. The circuit went like this: Stand up and climb for 5 seconds, down for 10 seconds, up for 5 and down for 10, and so on and so forth. As I was going up and down on one of those cycles I was spinning too fast and lost my footing – and almost lost the bike too!

Yesterday I was climbing again. When the music started and we were about to climb, I got excited!

All I could see was this massive mountain in front of me (visualisation is a wonderful thing).

As I was climbing I was thinking about every challenge that has ever come my way. I was thinking about every obstacle that has ever been in my path. I was thinking about every time I’ve ever gotten knocked down and how I got back up.

The mountain is a metaphor for all these things. Now, when I start a climb I think to myself,

“You’re mine! I’m gonna eat you up!” mountain

And you know what, that’s what happens when I leave the gym. Every time I face a new challenge, an obstacle or get knocked down, I think of the climb. I realize that there are only two options – go back where I came from or love the climb.

To the top!
