fitness goals

Don’t over complicate your life.

When it comes to training, there has to be a goal.  I use the word training instead of working out because I believe when you train, you are working towards a specific goal.  On the other hand, when you are working out – you are just doing that and have no clue what you want which has the possibility of creating a lot of frustration.

So what are you training for?

There are hundreds of things you can train for; increase you deadlift, bodybuilding or powerlifting competition, get a six pack, look damn good on your wedding day, improve athletic performance, lose weight to live a healthier and longer life, get a nicer butt, build pecs like Superman, and the list can go on.

Do you have an idea of what you are training for now?

When it comes to training, the purpose behind it is what drives you to keep pushing forward.  If you have no goal or no idea what you want, then it doesn’t mean anything to you.

Now let’s say you know what you are training for.  Solid.  The next step is to look at what you are doing in order to accomplish what you want.

Since I’m training to compete in a bodybuilding competition – would I want to decrease my mile time?  Hell no.  I’m not saying running a mile is bad, but training to decrease my mile time will take away from my main training which is the bodybuilding competition.

It’s like when I find a football player who feels like running 5 miles will get in prepared for the football season.  Or if you are looking to get a nicer butt - you spend hours attached to the cardio machines.  It’s not going to work.

I know.  Sucks right.

There is a bunch of information out there and it could be very confusing.  Trust me, when I first started out I was just as confused as you which caused me to drive myself crazy with research, articles, and books.

But after many experiments, trial and errors, I have a pretty good grasp on what’s needed and I’m always open to learning more.

If you know what it is you want to train for, then you have the first step down.  People are always making claims that they want to do this and that, but end up failing.  I wrote about 8 reasons why your fitness goals fail.  These reasons can be applied to every aspect of life, not just fitness.

So I’ll ask again – What are you training for?

If you know precisely or have a slight clue but don’t know where to start or how to do it – I can help.  I have openings to accept clients for my coaching programs and I’m stoked to help some solid peeps who are determined, dedicated, and ready to kick ass.  

Aloha and Be Ku!
