Mindset Monday – Mindfulness During Workouts

This week’s post will center on your focus for workouts. Focus starts before you even walk into the gym, when you read the workout on our website, making sure you understand the movements. When you walk through the doors and warm up, focus on preparing your body for the tasks at hand and performing movements outside of the group warm-up that YOU specifically need. Focus continues when you actively listen to the coach brief the workout, outlining movement standards and demonstrating exercises. Finally, it is imperative that you maintain your focus when participating in the workout. Think about doing it well, not sacrificing technique for time.

Often, we are reminding you to focus during the tempo work. Performing movements slow and controlled allows you to activate the proper muscle groups and not overcompensate. Tempo is also critical in muscular development. So, slow it down and focus…don’t just “do it to get it done.”
