This is our "why".

Kelly Kissane

When was the last time you hit a milestone on your health journey?  Did you crush your PR – make it through a body pump class – get up early and go to the gym or for a walk?  Did you congratulate yourself after?  Did you just ask yourself, “Why would I congratulate myself?

In the fitness world we often ask clients, “What is your why?”  Why are you making this change? Why now? What is your motivation? We’re writing this to help you understand our “why”.

I’ve been in the fitness industry for a long time.  I adore personal training.  I love seeing people gain an amazing sense of pride and accomplishment.  I recently asked thousands of women what they do to celebrate when they reach a milestone.  To my shock, most of the responses were that they have never thought about celebrating.  This didn’t sit well with me. I see so many women getting frustrated or burned out while on this betterment journey. I’ve narrowed it down to either they just aren’t celebrating or they are celebrating the wrong way (maybe a cheat day with the wrong or too much food – and I don’t mean kale). Naturally this would leave them feeling discouraged and worse yet, the next workout may suffer causing more frustration.  This cycle has the potential to derail their whole health journey. I believe that there is a right way and a wrong way to celebrate. The right way will propel you forward on your journey not lure you off track.
