If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I like to workout. I’m a fitness enthusiast, of sorts. I enjoy my time in the gym, I love pushing myself and I love the results – those do take time though. I frequently get asked this question, “How do you stay consistent in the gym?”
My answer is simple, “I want it that bad.”
I don’t have any tips or advice on how to stay consistent in the gym because it all boils down to how bad you want your ideal body. So, how bad do you want it? If you want it bad enough, the consistency will follow. Once you make fitness a habit instead of a moment in your day or week, you’ll be consistent. When you truly enjoy something, you submerse yourself in it. Being consistent in the gym isn’t about diversifying your workouts or following fitness gurus on Instagram. Although those things will keep you inspired and maybe a bit intrigued, they won’t help you with consistency. I believe that there are few things in life that can be perfect: food, music, film, a smile and your body.
Perfection is achieved through consistency. I am never going to be the perfect person but I can have the perfect body and that’s what I’m working towards. It’s a journey and truth be told, the toughest part of it all is what you do outside of the gym but that’s another article. Showing up to the gym is only half the battle.
Fitness is a lifestyle.
Getting in shape requires a lifestyle and diet change. It’s an arduous task for most but my God is it rewarding. When you look good, you feel good. Stop looking for the shortcut. Consistency is not about a four step plan or a podcast or an accountability partner or Facebook group, it’s about you. So again, how bad do you want it?
