5 Ways To Stay Motivated During a Comp Prep

Comp prep is as much a mental game as it is a physical one!

So we’ve put together 5 ways to keep you motivated during the hard times. Whether you’re new to the stage or have competed before, these tips will keep you on track while getting stage lean.

1. Hire a great coach

A coach is pretty much a necessity. Not only is it ideal to have an objective opinion by your side during your prep, getting your training and nutrition adapted according to your progress is vital for optimal results. A great coach will regularly check in with you to make sure you’re staying on track, and keeping your spirits up when times get tough! 

Enterprise Fitness has coached hundreds of people to stage and over 260 wins. If you’re looking to compete, prep with the best. You deserve it.

2. Weekly skinfold testing

Weekly or fortnightly skin folds allow you to track small changes and identify exactly where you are losing fat from. For this reason we recommend measuring 12 sites. At Enterprise, we use these measurements to judge how your training and nutrition should be adapted going forwards.

What gets measured gets managed, The better the management, the better the results!

3. Create a routine

Motivation is overrated. Relying on your emotions is just not going to get the job done. 

If you want to see results, you need routine. Consistently reaffirming positive habits with your training, nutrition and lifestyle will keep you in check.

Set alarms on your phone throughout the day for meal times, training sessions, and other daily activities. This takes the stress away from too much decision making, just follow the reminders and you’ll get through the day!

4. Mix up where you train

You’ve been training at the same gym for months, maybe years. Heading to the same old shop day in, day out can get monotonous. Having multiple locations to train can give you a refreshing outlook on your training, and reinvigorate your focus.

Many of our Enterprise competitors train with us at our studio 2 to 3 times a week and train the remainder of their weekly sessions at their own gyms. It works out great for them, every time they walk through our doors, their love for training and reaching their goal is revived.

5. Meet other competitors

Start connecting with like-minded people! Not only will you build a great new network of friends, they can help you through the hard times. Other competitors know what you’re going through, and it’s great to have a support system around you that can relate to the ups and downs of prep. 

Take note of these 5 ways to stay motivated during your competition season to avoid throwing in the towel, and make sure you’re achieving your goals.
