What does it feel like when you are working towards your fitness goals?
This weekend I attended an excellent summit on sports performance. I was in a room with great minds and a few great motivators. One of the speakers highlighted what a calendar year looks like when we have an "intermittent athlete." One he defined as someone who fits in training when it makes the most sense for the athlete's schedule. When someone approaches their development this way, it is likely the athlete will only get a year of development over a four year period. And although that is better than nothing, it rarely changes the body and resilience of the athlete only teaching an athlete how to lift. It doesn't allow for changing programming and nutrition, testing for benchmarks of success, or understanding the body's adaptation to stress and sport. As coaches, we know commitment and a close eye change athletes. Not just lifting weights sometimes.
This thought made me think about how a majority of adults do this as well. We think of our fitness in small increments. Not thinking of the consequences of this mentality. If we do the math though, you end up only attempting your goals a small percentage of the year and then question why you are not getting the results you want. You don't allow for adaptation and when change is necessary, you don't know what to do.
You see, your body is constantly changing. It is constantly adapting to its environment at a cellular level. And unless you are adjusting for health consistently, it is likely you are not seeing results. Your body is different today than it was yesterday.
Your health path is a constant adjustment. It isn't a one size fits all model. It isn't simply adhering to one golden rule and never wavering.
It is changing, paying attention, testing, changing, paying attention, testing...
If you are struggling, if you feel like you attempt a lot of exercise, but rarely get the results you are hoping for, please think about working with a coach that makes sure you are constantly adjusting.
At Teamwork, our coaches take note of your progress and continue to adjust for results. We don't deliver workouts. We deliver personal attention.
If you would like to try out Teamwork Bloomington, and get a better understanding of what "adjustment" feels like in a supported environment, please consider joining our Transformation Challenge. It is a 6 week program that teaches you how to adjust your fitness and nutrition and watches your success through measurements and discussion.
