This is the time of the year when everyone is in vision boarding, New-Year-New-You heaven. It’s highly inspired and inspiring. Everyone is resetting, refreshing, and renewing. So as a person who keeps this lifestyle pretty constant, I often ask myself, how can I maintain my focus.
Last year, I decided to diversify my fitness experiences and I’m carrying that into this year. I’ll be 40 this year. Yep, you read that right, the big 4-0. And as I approach this milestone and notice a few more twinges and tweaks in my body, I know I still want to stay highly active and engaged and not get bored with my fitness routines. I marvel at my friends who are in their 40s, 50s and even 60s who are still out there conquering long distance races, triathlons, and and talking new feats every year. They are where I draw my inspiration.
Some of my clients ask me what’s the best way to stay fit and focused. My answer is to constantly engage with other fitness minded and fitness engaged people. Draw inspiration and motivation from their progress, success, and action to push you to your own goals. The best part about this process is that you too end up inspiring people who are watching you and you can build your own fitness community.
