A couple of months ago, I decided I really needed to focus more on my own workouts. I was teaching regularly (pole, PiYo, and flexibility) and in a regular flexibility training class on top of that, but it was hard for me to get into as many other pole classes as I wanted to. I felt like although I was pretty active, I wasn't necessarily putting in the time for my own workouts.
If you start a fitness program, there's one thing they never tell you:
Exercise is the easy part.
No, working out isn't inherently easy. Getting up early to run is hard sometimes. Going to the studio after a long day at work can be tough. Staying on the mat for a full hour of flexibility training can be difficult. Doing the conditioning and strength building you need for a solid invert is challenging.
