The Three Fitness Plans You Don’t Want to Live Without – Part 1
This is an introduction to a fitness area that most often goes overlooked. I believe this fitness area, which I’m holding off on naming, is the key to all other fitness areas. But first let’s discuss the two most common.
Our Body Needs A Physical Fitness Plan
You’re most familiar with having a physical fitness plan. Especially during the 1st of any year, it’s common conversation everywhere you go. In the office, people are talking about hitting the gym and joining some fitness club. At home, you might be discussing your new year’s resolution-getting into shape-with a spouse.
Quite frankly, one of the things I hate to hear the most is another new year’s resolution. I believe if you’re going to do something, it doesn’t take changing calendar years to make that happen.
For example, Pamela and I decided to have a regular physical fitness plan. My plan consisted of, at a minimum three times per week, a one mile run at 5:00 a.m. around our neighborhood. I have fallen in love with these morning runs. There are very few, if any, weeks that I miss out on my morning runs. These runs have become an important part of my life and are now more than a physical fitness regimen. Pamela on the other hand enjoys doing her workouts in our in-home gym, burning it out on the treadmill while reading or watching a video.
A majority of our focus at the end of each year, New Year’s Eve, is spent reviewing and updating our Family Plan for the upcoming year. This year, Pamela and I are incorporating two fitness programs of either the T25 and/or the Insanity workouts, which we’ve done before….and it works. We started Insanity as a result of our God-sons challenging us to the 60 day workout plan. To our surprise, it was probably one of the best suggestions to benefit our physical fitness.
In planning for our year, I have found two, two month spots on our calendar for these extreme workout programs. Of course they are strategically positioned on our calendars during the year. As a reward for completing the fitness programs, I’m thinking we will plan a special vacation getaway after each. This is what I mean by planning. Have a goal and a reward system to make sure you meet your goal. In the end, you win.
The idea is to find something, whether small, large or aggressive that works for your life. Commit to it, get a partner, and do it daily so that it becomes a normal habit in your life.
