The difference between working out and training: the end goal you want to accomplish and the work you’re willing to put in to get there.
For general health and fitness (and to look good naked) you workout. And guess what? That’s TOTALLY FINE! And in some cases better for longevity 🤷🏼♀️ you show up to feel good, move better, and have a healthy balance in your life.
But what changes a workout into a training session is the goal in mind. It’s the mindset behind every lift. It’s the video review, it’s performing every lift with intention of being better than the last, it’s showing up to every session ready to work. It’s failing over and over to get better in the long run. Training is motivated by a goal of competition, setting specific marks to aim for. Training happens outside of the gym in your nutrition and recovery. Training is being intentional with everything from your programming to your bed time. It’s making decisions that lead you closer to your goals. •••
It’s not always easy. Sometimes it means being a little unbalanced 🤭 The best in the world don’t become that way by going through the motions. Training involves a focus that only some have the discipline to develop. It’s a drive that has always impressed me in the athletes that I’ve coached. Honestly, it’s a sacrifice, a willingness to do something hard today to make yourself a better athlete tomorrow. •••
What do you think? What sets training a part from an every day workout? Do you train or do you workout?? And remember both are perfectly perfect answers😉
