Throughout your fitness journey you’re bound to experience highs and lows. Even the most experienced athletes can attest to this.
“Highs and lows” can look different for everyone, but here are some common situations I hear about from students and clients:
…You experienced rapid progress at the start of your journey, but your gains are slowing down or have come to a standstill. (plateaus)
…You challenged yourself to start a new skills program or fitness plan, and you’re really struggling. (need to scale back)
…You were motivated and on a roll, but now you’re lacking inspiration and skipping workouts. (boredom/lack of interest, or life change)
…You’ve recently been injured and don’t know how to keep up with your goals while working below full capacity.
Do any of these sound familiar?
As you continue to challenge your body and push your limits, you’ll likely run into roadblocks at times. Whether your progress has slowed, your motivation is lacking, or you’re just not seeing the results you expected, rest assured that every athlete experiences challenges like this.
Here are some recommendations for getting past the “lows” and getting back to the “highs” of exercise – progress, health, and happiness!
