I know we hear the word ‘intention’ here and there but when it comes to training it is almost crucial.
I spoke a few articles ago about other important points to keep you motivated and healthy and I would like to add the power of intention to the mix.
When I say intention I mean the core energy that is going to make you move, exercise and above all create a healthy lifestyle.
In my experience most people don’t have it. They approach me with a list of body requests like: I would like my legs to be like Miranda Kerr’s, I would like my arms to be like Julia Roberts’ and the list of body parts goes on and on.
But … when the target is reached the feeling will be empty!
That’s because that was no intention behind the target.
Weight loss, toning and muscle toning are not intentions but the result of training. I will say it again, they are only a consequence of correct training.
If we add the intention to the mix, like I would like to have Miranda Kerr’s body because it will benefit my career but above all I would like to feel better , that’s different.
I am a big believer that the intentions must be related and associated with feeling, emotions and change. Almost like you are striving to go beyond yourself and fully charged to change the status quo of yourself.
I will give you a few examples.
I had clients who, when achieved their weight loss, the intentions were to change their jobs, careers, hair, style, cities and even countries. Those are great examples of charged intentions.
Most people fail in fitness because of the lack of those intentions. They take fitness as a superficial and shallow thing and the result will be exactually like their intentions , superficial and shallow and with time they will stop training ! Simple as that.
After achieving the proposed intention, is important to put yourself into the fire and set another list of charged intentions! My recommendation is to discuss them with your trainer, be specific and above all challenge the core of your own self.
Start with a list of things that you believe need change around you. Take responsibility and be honest with yourself.
Remember that it is about you. Until you take full responsibility for your actions and shine from within you will always be trying to get approval from others to feed your happiness. And happiness is an inner state and not something that needs to be approved or requested, it needs to be worked from inside you.
So next time that you see someone’s body that you would like to emulate think twice why you would like to change yourself .
Above all training is just another tool to connect yourself with your own happiness !
