Do you get energy from words?
Often our mind tells us to stop or slow down, way before our
body is ready to.
So we’ve put together five of our favourite inspirational quotes to help you fight back the little downer voice in your head that tells you that you can’t.
Go on, try chanting them in your mind during that next set of burpees!
"Nothing great ever came from comfort zones"
Being out of your comfort zone, no matter what you are doing, is scary, stressful and hard – and our body doesn't like it!
It’s OK to be out of breath, to feel discomfort, to push yourself to your limits – your body will adjust. That adjustment is exactly the reason you are working out – it’s that adjustment that causes wonderful changes in your body.
“Make every move count”
Why do something if you’re not going to do it properly? This is important whether you’re warming up, in the middle of some tough glute work at the barre or stretching and cooling down after class.
At Core Candy we are always for quality not quantity. One fabulous rep of an exercise is so much better than five sets of the same exercise performed with poor form (*another reason coming to Core Candy is better than working out alone at the gym!) We’d rather you slow down, check in with your body and do the movements with correct posture and form than give up and cheat your way through the movements.
You made a huge effort to get to class – make every movement count.
"One workout closer to being sexy as &%$*!"
We work out to feel more powerful and confident, both emotionally and physically – do you agree? Power and confidence are sexy, no matter your gender.
"Better for it"
This was one of the tag lines on the Nike NTC Tour that was held recently in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland – a fantastic event!
“If you can push through these tuck jumps you’ll be BETTER FOR IT”. We love this – it’s simple and true. We always feel better after a good sweat sesh and we're healthier for it.
"If it doesn’t challenge me, it won’t change me"
An oldie but a goodie because it's so true! Your workouts need to be physically challenging or you’ll stop seeing results. In order to improve your fitness, strength and stamina, you need to challenge yourself.
Switching up your fitness routine and exercises will ensure your body is always challenged. Look forward to doing the exercises that you hate because they’re hard – when you suddenly realise you can do them you’ll love them!
So – clear your mind of can’t (woop there’s another!) – and start pumping yourself up instead with inspirational words that speak to you.
