Decide. Commit. Succeed.

In life and in fitness, we’re all naturally better at some things than at others. Thanks to genetics, certain types of exercise could feel easier or more enjoyable to you (people with more fast twitch muscle fibers, for example, have an easier time with activities like HIIT and sprints, whereas people with more slow twitch muscle fibers will be better at distance running).

But just because an activity isn’t your strong suit doesn’t mean you should skip it all together. In fact, if you want to see dramatic changes in your fitness level, you do need to do things that you’re not very good at or predisposed to. People that get a little better train their strengths, people that see dramatic gains train their weaknesses. And, hey, you may even end up loving it!
