I will what I want. Consider what you want…are you doing everything you can to get there? If not, perhaps it is time to will what you want.
“It is a reminder that you don’t need permission, advice or affirmation when you have WILL. It’s a celebration of who you are. As an athlete. As a woman. As everything in between and beyond. It’s a reminder that the best things in life aren’t given. They’re earned. And there’s one reason you are where you are today. That reason is you.”
I Will What I Want
Successful people meet their goals. There are no two ways about it. They put the pen to the paper and the pedal to the metal.
You are a smart cookie. Your goals should always reflect that quality. They will be measured and you will crush them. That is why anything that has “more” is just not descriptive enough. You want “line items” where a check mark can be applied.
Intensity is about laser focus. In the gym or outside of it there is no doubt you are in the moment with your intensions. Crush it? Oh, you will.
Find the Intensity
Back in the days where I was really just a cardio bunny, I would simply hop on a treadmill or an elliptical and sort of hang out for 45 minutes to an hour. If I remembered music I would use my headphones, and listen to music. If not, the gym usually had some magazines I would read or a screen I would watch. Magazines and TV watching are not where great bodies are made or an athletic spirit is developed. I would do this twice a week at most, and then ponder why I was not seeing any results. I was going to the gym and putting some time, but the intensity was surely lacking.
You can accomplish so much more if you keep your pace going and your focus high. Even if you only have a half hour to be in your workout every moment needs to count.
Do not get distracted by your playlist or an email on your phone. Selfies are for after a workout…obviously.
Distractions ruin intensity. You want to focus on your weights, your movements and your next exercise. If you are there to use cardio machines then crank up the intensity and really move. Switch up your resistance and speed. Make it worth your while.
Worth the Time
Intensity is a piece of the fitness puzzle that I do not think gets discussed enough. Many of us shy away from that concept. Intensity is the focus that you put into every move and single rep. You cannot simply punch your gym membership card and hope to see results. You need it to be worth your time and help you get where you need to go.
