Monday’s, you either love them or you hate them. This is the perfect opportunity for you to get your week back on track. It’s almost as if it’s a reset button for that following week. Self discipline in the fitness world often goes a long way. Finding the discipline to start your week off right with getting that Monday workout in is often the hardest part. The days where we find ourselves dreading our workout are the days we need it the most. When you find yourself just in a funk where you’re not mentally or physically ready to get a workout in, remind yourself about that after workout “high”. Monday’s are the day for that self push and trust me you will not regret that you did it.
5 Reasons to Never Miss a Monday
