I had a powerful talk with one of our members at the gym the other day.
She’s a busy mom of two who loves to workout, but struggles to come consistently to the gym more than 3x a week.
She felt because she wasn’t able to come 4x a all the time that she wasn’t pushing herself and wasn’t motivated.
Now, we all have our ruts, but this person in particular I know fairly well and motivation is not her issue.
She had come from a previous gym environment that was about working out as much as you can – and working out for the sake of just working out.
Knowing her goals, I explained to her that:
1. Adding extra sessions to her week could actually be hurting her progress
2. The whole reason she is working out in the first place is so she can have better relationships with her family
I only knew the second part from previous conversations – but its important to know what your goals are because if you don’t, you could end up putting in some hard work and going no where.
Yes losing weight is a goal.
Toning up is a goal.
But those are surface level.
What do you REALLY want?
Why do you want to lose weight?
Why do you want to feel better?
What happens when you feel better?
When your’re in a better mood, how does that improve your life?
By asking yourself these questions, you’ll figure out pretty quick that you aren’t just working out to lose weight.
When you identify your deepest goal – then you can start building a plan that integrates working out with your family, your hobbies, and your job.
In our free goal setting sessions at Hybrid Fitness with people looking to join our classes for the first time, we help you do all of this for free. We’ll walk you through each step and give you a clear vision for what your life can look like without overwhelming you.

On the flipside, if you’d like to go all in with understanding what makes you tick, and ultimately being to take control of your life so you can stick to your health goals (or any goals by that matter), we have 7 spots left in Beautiful U, our nutrition / personal development challenge starting April 14th.
