As Fort McMurray’s Top Rated Local® athletic trainer, Mike Mckoy of Train & Believe has the knowledge and skills to help people push the limits of their physical abilities and shatter their personal records. One thing that is important to understand as you endeavor to do so is that physical fitness is not simply a goal that can be achieved and then forgotten about. If you’re serious about improving your abilities, you must recognize that fitness is much more of a process or a journey than a destination.

For example, if you’re perfectly satisfied lifting 75 pounds on the chest fly machine, your performance in other areas is going to plateau. Progress is the name of the game here, and if you aren’t making progress then you aren’t tapping into your full potential. In this example, you might start adding weight to your chest fly workout; 5 pounds this week, another 5 pounds next week. Don’t allow yourself to fall into a complacent state of not wanting to work any harder. If you’re a competitive athlete, you can’t afford to stagnate. You must keep adding on reps, weight, and time in the gym in order to realize your full athletic capabilities.

Put another way, the more you do, the more you can do. You may think, “I’m working hard enough”, but if you aren’t challenging yourself every day, your performance is going to plateau. Athletic trainer Mike Mckoy can help you determine a course of action that allows you to continue to grow in strength, endurance, and ability.
