Your intentions are right-on; you’re starting an exercise program! You go into it with energy and high motivation. Then you fizzle.
Does this happen to you?
My goal, and the foundation agile was built on, is to show you how to overcome this. Every program starts off relatively easy and then builds in intensity each session and each week. The 4th week is a taper week, which means we back off of the intensity so that your body can regenerate and become stronger. Then you're ready to start the process again, except at a higher level.
It takes about 2 cycles (months) for this pattern to take root. The first few weeks, you might resist the routine. It's human nature. Even elite athletes have to concentrate on getting their workouts done by reminding themselves of their ultimate goals.
I make an inner smirk sometimes when I hear people tell me their goals, because I know that, if they stay the course, they will exceed their goals and reach a state of well being that they cannot currently imagine.
