Your negative thoughts are keeping you from achieving your fitness goals and that’s got to change if you want to succeed. Here’s the tricky part… do you even know you’re having negative thoughts?
Here are 5 common negative thoughts you need to stop right now. If this article rings true then you need to book in a trial class, tell us your thoughts and we will help you to overcome them.
Here we go:
1. Everyone will laugh at me
They won’t. We absolutely and 100% guarantee that our members won’t laugh at you. Everyone is focused on their own personal goals, progress and workout so nobody will be looking at you and they definitely won’t be judging you. We get it, some gyms have these horrible cliques of “perfect bodies” but that’s not our way and definitely not what will happen to you.
2. I’m not fit enough to be at the gym
Well where are you fit enough to be then? On the couch? Everyone starts somewhere and every single one of our members had a first day. In fact, every single professional athlete in the world had a first day. Picture your future, your fit self and make that your thought. Your journey is just beginning, so keep going, think of your end results and ditch that negative thought.
3. I don’t know how to do anything
Of course you don’t, you’re new! We don’t expect you to walk in and know all the movements right away! Getting the hang of the movements can be intimidating – especially when you see others navigating them so easily. When you begin with CrossFit Valkommen, our coaches are always on hand to help you master the movements and feel comfortable in your new environment. If you’re still a bit nervous just ask one of the coaches but push that negative thought away right now!
