7 Fitness Lessons We Can Learn

  1. Commit to doing some kind of physical activity for 30 minutes a day at least five times a week. Remember, athletes go at it 6 or 7 days a week for 3 to 7 hours a day.
  2. Be disciplined at what you are eating at your training table. I'm not talking about committing for the next year (or even six months). I'm asking you to be diligent for one month, 80% of the time. Watch your portions and try to eat real food. If you want to have a little food fun, go ahead; just make sure the balance comes out to doing the right thing 80% of the time. And remember to hydrate with lots of water.
  3. Keep a positive mental attitude. These athletes believe they will win and can achieve whatever goal they set forth. What's keeping you from your goals? Eliminate doubt and focus with all of your mental energy on your goal. Whether it's to lose weight, get connected to your body, create more energy, or all of the above, just get out there and do it.
  4. Be a good teammate and surround yourself with great coaches. Find someone to do the task with you, and if you need help, talk to someone who is knowledgeable or get info from a source that is reputable.
  5. Have some fun. If you hate every minute of moving and eating, how can you be successful? Believe me, even though the athletes are in a daily grind, deep down in their hearts they believe in what they are doing and enjoy it.
  6. Judge yourself on how hard you try. As an athlete some days you win and some days you get beaten because someone was just better. Don't just pay attention to the fact that you lost those desired ten pounds. Judge yourself on the fact that you are giving it your all and making an honest effort.
  7. Love yourself and feel proud for just being out there. I always used to tell young girls to play sports not to be a college athlete or pro, but to just get out there and feel great about getting in the game.
