In order to be successful at anything you do you need to know WHY you are doing it. Understanding the WHY helps to give you purpose and when you are working towards a goal it helps to give you motivation to keep working toward that goal no matter the obstacles.
Since my favorite topic is working out – I thought I’d leave it to you – to tell me WHY you workout. Knowing this will only help you reach your fitness goals – whatever they may be – faster. As well as keep you motivated to keep going to the gym to matter the hour or the type of day you’ve had! So – THANK YOU for being so MOTIVATED and helping me write today’s post.
