3 Ways Fitness Helps to Fuel Self-Growth

3 Ways Fitness Helps to Fuel Self-Growth

Inner and outer growth are intimately connected. When your physical strength is tested, you’re forced to draw on inner resources. Likewise, when you’re faced with mental or emotional challenges, having a strong and adaptable body can help you to feel more empowered. By becoming fitter and healthier, you foster qualities that not only help to transform your body, but your life too. Let’s explore three key ways your fitness adventure can help to fuel self-growth. 

1. Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone

Whether it’s squeezing in an extra burpee at the end of a set or running a few more steps than you did yesterday – a little extra push goes a long way. Every time you meet your comfortable edge and choose to go beyond it, you’re expanding your personal potential. 

2. Developing Discipline 

Building fitness takes commitment and focus. To achieve your fitness goals, you have to continue to show up and try. No one can do the hard work for you, and by developing the self-control to stay on track, you become more accountable – inside and outside the gym! 

3. Learning the Art of Balance

Use your fitness journey to help you find more balance in life. If you lift a lot of heavy weights, that might mean practicing Yoga to ease tension. If you do a lot of high-impact workouts, that might mean strengthening your joints with some Pilates. Finding a balance between being active and passive is the key to lasting health and endurance – so be sure to honour what your body needs.
