Pushing the limits for Results

By Scotty 0

What you learn by pushing your physical limits, is that the biggest rewards in life will always involve some pain to get there.

And the feeling of euphoria is what you experience when you are willing to push yourselves beyond what you previously thought you were incapable of.

Avoid this pain and you avoid the feelings that come with rising above the ordinary.

That’s why we have this wonderful feeling of positivity powered by an endorphin rush after we’ve walked (or should I say crawled!) out of an intense, limit-pushing workout or exercise activity.

In fact, being uncomfortable is the only way to grow.

Muscle and strength is developed by gradually increasing the weight you use and number of repetitions you complete.

Stamina is raised by running, ski, rower, bike or swimming that little bit further each time.

In doing so, we begin redesigning a new reality of what we’re capable of, which in turn, gives us a new perspective of what is now ‘normal’ for us.

Another important lesson I’ve learnt from pushing myself physically, is that you’re far more likely to move outside of your comfort zone when there are people around you to help inspire you forwards.

It’s why group classes can be so powerful and transformational, and, why many people often get so much more out of fitness classes and having a coach/mentor with them than exercising on their own.

When you are surrounded by others who are in a similar position and on the same journey, we are often more compelled to persist, overcoming any temporary pain that may try and derail you.


Your limits will never change, if you don’t test them on a regular basis.
