When All Else Fails

Just like those that I train, I often times have a hard time getting myself motivated to do my workout. I’ve been at this for so long that you’d think it’s just ingrained in me right? For the most part yes, and it’s taken me a long time to get to that. I do the top two things that I suggest to clients.

– Set an alarm on my phone to go off when it’s time to workout.

– Have my workout clothes out or already on!

But some days I just don’t WANT to workout!

When my mind is being that stubborn, I take my socks and shoes off and get the mat out. Mobility work clears my mind, warms up my body, and gives me time to feel where imbalances maybe flaring up. Once I’m a couple minutes into it, I can feel a sense of ease set in and then I start to think about my workout and ACTUALLY begin to look forward to it.

Just a little something that I wanted to share with you all. You can do this before a workout, after a workout, and you can even do it after a long ride! Add this to your training tool box!

Just a quick reminder that I have 10 Free Workout Finishers available for download. What is a finisher? Click here and read about them and why I love them. Another time saver for your tool box!


The brand new 6 Week MTB Foundations and Strength Building Program.  I haven’t EVEN launched this to the public. I wanted to offer it to you all that have signed up here with GS first. My existing Geared Strength riders! For the intro offer of $17 (35% off) you get 6 weeks of complete training broken down into phases.

– Warm up and cool downs included!

– Minimal equipment needed.

I like to keep the workouts short and simple so that we all can get back to riding! Go check it out!

Ride longer, ride happier.

Your coach, Tennyson
