Monthly Motivation

Tip of the Month 

An excerpt from Louise Green's "Big Fit Girl: Embrace the Body You Have," these habits are the result of years of careful observation of athletes she admires. Click here to read more!

The 9 Habits of Highly Successful Athletes:
  1. Think positively & visualize success.
  2. Set goals, both short-term and long-term, and create solid action plans to support their goals.
  3. Follow structured training plans.
  4. Keep records or logs to track progress
  5. Keep an open mind: keeping track of your progress allows you to see how far you have come. This is a great motivator when self-sabotage comes into play.
  6. Work out even when you don’t want to.
  7. Practice self-discipline and avoid the temptations of life if these get in the way of your goals (staying out too late, drinking too much, sleeping in).
  8. Be willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
  9. Have self-compassion. Not all workouts will be great, but successful athletes learn from their not-so-good workouts and their mistakes and see shortcomings as opportunities to improve.
