A motivational note from Octane Fitness team member and certified group fitness leader:
If at first you donâ€™t succeedâ€¦youâ€™re running about average. Do you feel like maybe you are in a slump with your fitness goals or interval training? Do you feel unsuccessful? Thatâ€™s normal. So, try again. Donâ€™t give up though. You might think of yourself as a failure but you are not. Success doesnâ€™t just happen. It can take several tries before you even begin to make some progress. Do you think this doesnâ€™t happen to anyone else? How about
knowing that this happens to everyone else! Yes we all have been through it. We all have hit some type of roadblock, and some people give up, but some keep trudging along.
Which one will you choose? Give up or keep going? I say keep going. Use this CROSS CiRCUIT interval training workout to refuel your drive. Remember, success only happens when you make it happen!
