Before you come in to the gym, I recommend that you set your mind to train. Regardless of what is on the board for the day, your mentality should be to train to become better than yesterday (also realize that rest / recovery is all part of training).
We can plan ahead and reflect on the past, but you can only change how things are progressing within the present time. If you want to quite smoking, stop smoking presently consistently till a week, a month, a year passes. You have power and control of your present decisions.
Setting goals for yourself will also encourage you to gravitate towards them. Whether you are successful or not, you will get closer to said goal and transition to another one. Set goals to keep you moving in the direction of “the bigger picture.”
Live life in the present. One day at a time. -Tim

Hey guys, just a quick note in regards to our recent workouts. I know this week we have hit some pretty intense points during the classes, really revving up the engines so to speak. We know its important to warm up, gradually raising the body’s level of activity until we can safely push our limits during the workout. But often we forget that it is just as important to ensure that we gradually lower our heart rates and activity level. Just like with a car, when you drop from your highest gear into first it will jack up the clutch or transmission. The same is true for your body. After a workout like the one today, give yourself a few minutes of walking, easy rowing, light airdyne, or whatever floats your boat in order to bring down your activity level gradually. Your body will be better off for it.
