Theme Perspective Points The best way to track our own progress is to take note of our best times and best rep count and make a goal to beat those numbers the next time around. The goal is to do even better the next time and we naturally will be stronger after that workout by having the motivation to beat our OWN records.
“The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday.”
The only person you’re competing with is yourself. It is all about finding your PERSONAL BEST. Shoot for as many reps as you can and fight for a little more!
Beat your own PERSONAL BEST records everyday you come into Synergy the next few weeks. Set your goals high and strive to push past them each and every day.
The gym is not a place for judgement, or caring what everyone else around you is doing. The gym is your “happy” time, and it’s your job to make the most out of your time here.
