From Comfort Zone To Beast Mode

“The comfort zone is a psychological state in which one feels familiar, safe, at ease, and secure. You never change your life until you step out of your comfort zone; change begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
― Roy T. Bennet

I bought a stationary bike about a year ago to incorporate it into my workout routine. I assumed if I bought a bike for at-home use, It would be a good compliment to offset the impact of my weekly runs. I’ve tried teaching spin classes in the past but couldn’t get motivated and I was hoping this purchase would provide a good incentive to do more cycle workouts. Although I love weight training, kickbox classes, running, and interval training, I still get easily bored with spin. Therefore, needless to say, I’ve barely used my spin bike in the past year.

The final straw that drove me to dust off my stationary bike was two weeks of non-stop rain making it impossible to get outside for a run.

I tried my best to get into “Beast Mode” and plastered a fake smile on my face, similar to Lucy in the pic above. I decided to do a thirty-minute spin workout and It was a killer cardio, leg, and glute workout. But I’m still a LONG way away from liking this type of workout. Part of it is the fact that I find myself getting out of my comfort zone rather quickly. I realize this type of workout is probably just what I need to bust through a plateau and challenge my body with something different.
