8. You Don’t Consult An Expert
When learning something new, you’re always better off asking someone who knows best. To help you get on track, Blauner recommends learning from a qualified instructor. From then on out, be eager to learn, there is always room for improvements and advancements at the gym. You can always get stronger. He says “once you decide what type of training that you would enjoy, read up on it. Go to multiple sources for your information. Even YouTube can provide some useful videos on your choice.”
9. You Don’t Believe You Can Change
Say it with us: Progress takes patience. It’s much easier for our bodies to fall out of shape than to morph into shape. So do your best not to get discouraged when you’re just getting back into the swing of things. “Going back to the gym after a lengthy time off requires the person to build back up to his/her previous fitness level, and not just take it up where they left off,” says Dr. Ochiai. Recognize that your body may be different compared to the last time you worked out, and accept that you may have to begin at the ground level again. You can and you will reach your goal, but it will take some time to get there. Try your best to believe in yourself and allow yourself time to get to where you want to be.
