How to train your mind to boost your physical fitness

Brain Training

Mindfulness is just as important as physical training and absolutely key to achieving success. At PZF, which is frequently named the best gym in Lake Highlands, we offer a unique program that addresses the mind-body connection to help you achieve maximum success.

1. Define your goals – You can’t get anywhere until you decide where you’re going. Why are you training? For weight loss, body building, toning, agility, balance, posture, feeling better, looking great? Think about what you want to accomplish and write it down.

2. Stay on target – Keeping your objectives top of mind will motivate you to come to the gym, do your workouts to the best of your ability, and stick to your nutrition plan. Think about your goals daily as a little refresher. Pair them with positive thoughts, such as “I can do this.”

3. Fear not – People are sometimes intimidated about going to a gym – until they get here. PZF is a friendly place where everyone is treated with respect. By showing up and doing your best, you will gain confidence and forget your anxieties. Don't worry about what other people are doing. Our members are focused on their own goals and not on passing judgement on you or anyone else. Your confidence will grow as you continue to show up and do your best. Ask for help and directions when you need it, and don’t be afraid to laugh if something unexpected happens. Your time at PZF is for you, and we are your support team.

4. Do one thing at a time and do it well – Train your mind to be in the now, to master present-time consciousness. What you do mindfully today will determine how well you perform tomorrow.

5. Don't be afraid to fail – Failure is perhaps the greatest learning tool. It defines limits and shows you what you need to work on. But fearing failure is a terrible inhibitor. Being afraid to fail makes you unwilling to try. When you learn your limits, they you can train to exceed them. And when you do, you’ll feel the thrill of achievement.

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” — Henry Ford

Positive thinking nourishes the mind. It helps you grow and elevates your mood. In contrast, nega­tive thoughts hold you back. Both are self-fulfilling prophecies.

The evaluation below is designed to get you geared up for the exciting future ahead. Whether you're two months in or just need a reboot, creating a mental game plan is ALWAYS the key to success. Be honest, take it seriously, and don't be afraid to articulate what you want.
PUT YOUR ANSWERS WHERE YOU WILL SEE THEM EVERY DAY & GET MOTIVATED!

1. What are your reasons for getting in shape through PZF? Don't write "Get in shape." Be specific! Write numeric weight loss / inch loss or gain / strength goals.

2. How will you stay connected to your purpose? Don’t write “eat right / stay focused / work out.” Make a plan. Here are some examples: 1. Schedule workouts at the beginning of each week. 2. Set alerts to remind you to work out. 3. Have a scheduled time for meal prep each week. 4. Set alerts for the time and foods in each zoning meal. 5. Schedule a weekly mental recap of what you’ve done to reach your goals. 6. Post a motivational quote to read every day. 7. Have a motivational video to view daily. 8. Schedule a weekly weigh in. 9. Take a weekly results photo. 10. Send your workout stats to a friend after each workout. Write two or three that seem doable and helpful and that you can commit to.

3. How will your life be different once your goal is reached? Be specific! Don't say, "I'll be in shape."

4. Make a realistic two-week goal. Keep it simple, such as "Follow PZF meals," "Don't cheat at night," "Work out four times each week." Set a realistic two-month physical goal.

5. Write different times you have failed in achieving a fitness/weight-loss goal.

6. How will this time be different? Write why will you succeed this time.
