As we head into a new year, it’s easy to get stuck in the old ideas of pushing, pushing, and destroying our bodies in workouts to get the results we crave. Many of us look at the new year as the time to shed our winter coats, and we are tempted to push our bodies to their breaking points to achieve the quickest results. We are a generation that wants the quickest results, the magic pill, and we demand instant gratification instead of waiting for the lasting results that only come with slowing down. I would be lying if I said I have not been guilty of this type of behaviour in the past. At times, even now, I struggle with feeling as though sweating more and pushing myself to the point of feeling like I’m going to puke will achieve quicker results.
But I’m so very thankful for the strong mentors I have had in the fitness industry who urged me to explore the idea that maybe faster, harder, and more hours at the gym is not always the best idea.
“A little slower this time…”
“Don’t rush it…”
…are some of the common phrases you will hear when you face the adventure of your first Lagree class. Read more here.
