Every day we write our weights and results on the whiteboard and gauge our performance against our peers as a barometer of success. Who among us hasn't been disappointed with their performance despite giving it our best shot? Many factors contribute to your success in the gym; of course there's strength and conditioning but sleep, nutrition and mentality play an equal role in your workout results.

In this article on Athlete Daily, they ask several important questions that I suggest you all ask yourselves:

  • What do you really want out of your fitness?

  • What gets you excited to go to the gym?

  • Why were you there in the first place?

If we're not getting paid to perform at the gym, perhaps feeling and looking good, having energy to play with your kids and the mental clarify and capacity to perform well at work is where our focus should lie.

Athlete Daily writes:

"Bottom line: Put your ego aside and dig into technique. It's never too late to start moving better. Don't discount the importance of accessory or skill work, both of which have a heavy hand in preventing injury and making you look good."

Don't move faster than you can move well. Be mindful in your movement and strive toward technique PRs. Have perspective and don't forget why you're at the gym in the first place.

And most importantly, have FUN and enjoy your supportive community!
