Fitness tips from Olympic Athletes
I was reading some online articles on the upcoming Olympics and came across a website full fitness training quotes I find to be really AWESOME. The website is Tips from Olympic Athletes.
Not everybody wants to do as much training as an Olympian but EVERYONE is capable of getting fitter and achieving in sport!”
“There are so many different ways of keeping fit, from joining sports clubs or going to the gym to keeping fit at home and doing exercises in your front room or being out in the fresh air and countryside. The key is finding the thing that you are most happy doing.”
“Give yourself a challenge or a goal, however big or small, and that will be your main motivation. Come back to that goal when it gets hard!
“Respect your body, get excellence out of yourself, and have the courage and determination to give it a go and stick with it. Sport and exercise are good for your body, mind and spirit and you CAN do it. Challenge yourself today to a healthier lifestyle.”
“Remember, it takes time to improve at something and see the benefits. The more committed you can be towards your goal, the quicker you will see those improvements and benefits.”
“To be truly fit, training has to be progressive. Doing the same training day in day will not make any progress towards your intended goal. Regular, yet different, training and exercise is important. Training and fitness has to become a habit, a lifetime habit, but all habits can be fun.”
“It can be difficult to motivate yourself if you’re working out alone all the time, so try exercising with friends. That way you can motivate each other. Join a club; it’s really good for you and can help improve your times and distances. Exercise is a really healthy part of your lifestyle so it’s important to make it a regular routine.”
