Yours is the hero’s journey. The challenge is both physical and mental. You are self-motivated to uncover and transcend your own limitations.
Exercising alone, you develop a mental toughness. If you have a bad day, you must reach inside for the ability to get your workout done. Structure and organization are your friends. This helps you succeed. But you may want to build variety into your fitness plan, to help you maintain motivation.
Training solo gives you the luxury of setting a schedule that suits your unique likes and dislikes. And when you decide to alter the schedule because of the way you feel on any given day, no one has to be consulted.
Workouts can become a sort of meditation when you exercise undisturbed. This encourages you to enter a contemplative zone that provides a mental break from the stresses of the day.
If your style conflicts with work, family, or social life, a health coach can help you figure out how to find those compromises!
People enjoy your company. Don’t be surprised if you’re invited into a workout group or become an important member of one when you join on your own.
You look forward to getting together with your exercise buddies. This gives you a built-in motivation to show up. Your sensitivity to the feelings of others also helps you stick with a group activity. You don’t want to disappoint the others, do you?
Accountability is built into a group program. If you go AWOL from a workout, chances are the others will give you a good-natured ribbing the next time, if only because they missed you.
Exercising as a team is possible in many places and forms, ranging from community sports leagues, to sport clubs, to fitness classes. What’s more, they are all excellent learning environments, especially for beginners.
There is nothing like working out with others to build the bonds of friendship. When you find your workout team, you’ll enrich your life, form relationships, and share a fun-filled journey to better health.
Having a hard time finding your team? A health coach can help you problem-solve how to fit in more team work into your exercise habits!
You take life as it comes, knowing you can deal with whatever it hands you. You like to act on the spur of the moment and try new things.
Your daring helps the people around you break out of their comfort zones. The 9-to-5 life has never appealed to you. You prefer is the freedom to pursue your many interests.
For example, you might focus on functional fitness, when everyone else is exercising in pursuit o a certain look. Or maybe you do your workout at home, while everyone else belongs to a gym.
Being a non-conformist has pluses and minuses. Some friends may get annoyed when you suggest ditching the round of golf you’d planned in favor of a last-minute kayakingopportunity. Your good friends know to expect it. Take good care of thoseworkout buddies whose steadiness allows you to be the real you.
An independent spirit has a low tolerance for boredom and is quick to move on to a new activity. One challenge for you will be getting a total of 150 minutes of challenging aerobic activity each week.
Sometimes this kind of freedom requires a little more organization on your end! A health coach can help you find time in your schedule without giving up your spontaneous spirit!
