    What to do: Just put on your sneakers for 10 mins everyday this week.

    As you start up with your fitness plan, you might find yourself feeling overwhelmed by it all. You are excited about the results that you hope to see and have that plan in place, but getting yourself to the gym to actually do it proves to be a whole other ballgame.

    While you know what you want, you just can't seem to get started.

    If this is what's happening to you and preventing you from attaining the success that you're looking for, it's time that you take an alternate approach. That's what this challenge is all about.

    Let's take a quick look at the points to consider.

    1) Just Get Those Sneakers On

    The concept behind this challenge is to just get those sneakers on. This means that rather than trying to get yourself to the gym to put in 60 minutes total, which is going to feel quite overwhelming at this point, make a deal with yourself that you just need to get your sneakers on.

    Lace them up and get ready to go to the gym. Easy enough, right?

    2) Do 10 Minutes

    Once those sneakers are on, get into the gym and do ten minutes. Promise yourself that if after 10 minutes have pasted and you don't feel like do anything further, you can leave and go home.

    There is absolutely no pressure to stay any longer.

    Why This Works

    What does this challenge accomplish? By setting your sights lower like this, you reduce the expectations you have for yourself. You no longer have to perform some intense workout that you are stressing about.

    You no longer have to worry about a high level of fatigue build-up that you have to continue to work towards. Anyone can do 10 minutes of exercise so this will put your mind at ease. Then, once you're in the gym and have done those ten minutes, you're very likely to find that it's far easier than you thought. In fact, you might just enjoy it.

    Then once those ten minutes are up, you decide you want to go for another ten. Before you know it, you're on your way to completing that full workout that you dreaded so much before. Start setting your sights smaller. Reduce expectations and just make your goal showing up. In almost all cases, this will lead to more effort on your part, a higher level of happiness while in the gym, and better overall results.
