Starting any new program of exercise or nutrition can be a bit daunting. Remember that making the decision to create change in your life is an awesome place to start!
To get started write down your specific goals. Having them in writing will help you stay focused. Write down a long term goal and then break it down into smaller goals that are more easily achievable. As you accomplish these small goals you will be motivated to keep going. Post all of these goals where you can see them each and every day.
Look to others who have achieved similar goals. Having a mentor, trainer, or workout partner will also help you to keep going!
- Find a training program that excites you and has variety
- Eat Clean
