As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, winter training often requires that extra little bit of motivation. Okay, it can require a lot more motivation. But we are here to help you maintain your training regime in the winter season.
Make sure you’re held accountable for winter training.
Take advantage of the power of peer pressure to get you to your training sessions. Ensure you’ve signed up for regular classes an Extreme MMA. This will help keep you accountable for pitching up for winter training. Having classes that are scheduled will give you that extra structure you need to help you meet your winter training goals. For an added dose of motivation, sign up for classes with a friend or colleague so you can motivate each other.
Set small goals that will keep you on track for your year’s goals.
Goals don’t need to be mind blowing. Setting small achievable goals will help motivate you to get to your training facilities regularly. Perhaps you have a set number of workouts or classes you’d like to complete each week? Or improve a particular martial arts skill over the winter? Write down your goal and keep track of your progress daily, weekly, and monthly. Seeing regular improvement and progress will provide you with the motivation you need to keep going.
Try a new class to keep things interesting
Have you ever thought about trying something different? Maybe this winter is the time to give it a go. Stepping out of your usual training routine and signing up to learn something new is a great way to mix things up. This stimulates interest and motivation, and might be just what you need to encourage you to get out of bed in the morning.
