Positivity is Everything
To get the most of your ski workouts at home, start by being positive with yourself. The American Heart Association recommends celebrating your wins,big or small, by noting your progress (either on a calendar or in a logbook), asking friends or family to join your activities and by keeping your routines fun and exciting while mixing it up. Appreciate your own efforts, and track and celebrate your success! 1
If you miss a few days or don’t have your best workout, no problem! Don’t get down on yourself, simply appreciate the progress you have made and keep going. Focus on the things you’re doing right rather than any stumbles you may have.
Trainer Maureen Wilson from Shape reiterates this important lesson by saying, “When you accept that fitness isn't an all-or-nothing proposition, you're more likely to stick with it for life.”
