Yesterday, my regular Body Pump class started to change to new songs and routines. For those of you who don’t know, Pump uses a song to set a routine to for a certain exercise (squats, lunges, bicep, triceps…etc). For 2-3 months it pretty much stays the same routine and then the instructors start to phase in the new stuff when they get it.
Considering my gym just brought Pump in March, I’ve never done this transition to the new program before. Let me tell you- IT. WAS. HARD. Now I always try to challenge myself in class because I know I’m not getting anything out of it if I don’t but this change had me come to the revelation (duh…I’ve know this before, but sometimes you get reminded!) that change is uncomfortable- VERY uncomfortable…but this is how you see results!
Sometimes when I’m doing the same old thing with the same old weight I stop and think- why am I doing that…this is doing nothing for me…I need to challenge myself. Yes, I do believe that you need to work at some of the same programs for some time to really train your muscles- but you cannot do the same thing all the time and expect things to get better.
This is something that I realize and then have to hit myself in the forehead a couple times like- HELLOOOOOOO. DOI!
So I figured- if I need reminding sometimes- than maybe one of you need reminding too. And I’m not just talking fitness wise (although that’s what made me think of it) in many aspects of your life- you have to get a bit uncomfortable in order to see change and move forward. Sometimes reaching a goal is only possible by being uncomfortable and committing to making a change in our daily lives and routines. Without change- we will not get results.
This quote is so true!
Maybe there is something you need to change or incorporate in your life right now. Have you ever been in some situations (I’m sure you have!!) that you had to be uncomfortable in order to change, but LOVED the results? Tell me about it! I’d love to hear 🙂 Currently- I’m working on changing up my fitness routine (running mainly) in order to see some change in my speed!
