You know something guys, getting into fitness can be tough. There are new moves to learn, new fitness boundaries to push through and probably a change of diet and lifestyle too.
But you know what’s making it harder? You!
Your negative thoughts and excuses are keeping you from achieving your fitness goals and that’s got to change if you want to succeed. But here’s the thing… do you even know you’re having making excuses?
We are going to share with you 5 common excuses you need to stop supporting right now. If this article rings true then you need to book in a trial class, tell us your thoughts and we will help you to overcome them. Here we go:
1. Everyone will laugh at me
They won’t. We absolutely and 100% guarantee that our members won’t laugh at you. (Unless you come to the gym in a bear suit and then maybe!) Everyone is focused on their own personal goals, progress and workout so nobody will be looking at you and they definitely won’t be judging you. We get it, some gyms have these horrible cliques of “hot girls” or “buff guys” but that’s not our way and definitely not what will happen to you.
2. I’m not fit enough to be at the gym
Well, where are you fit enough to be then? On the couch? Everyone starts somewhere and every single one of our members had a first day. In fact, every single professional athlete in the world had a first day. Picture your future, your fit self and make that your thought. Your journey is just beginning, so keep going, think of your end results and ditch that negative thought.
3. I don’t know how to do anything
Of course you don’t, you’re new! Did you think we would expect you to keep up with our long term members on your first day? Getting the hang of the movements can be intimidating – especially when you see others navigating them so easily. When you begin with Bridge The Gap CrossFit, all new members are put through four Box Basics classes where they learn the fundamental moves of CrossFit in a one on one environment. After that our coaches are always on hand to help you master the movements and feel comfortable in your daily workouts. If you’re still a bit nervous just ask one of the coaches but push that negative thought away right now!
