How do I stay motivated to pole dance at home?
This is a recurring question I’ve seen recently so I thought I’d share my thoughts. Lets start by looking at the definitions of Motivation and Dedication.
Motivation – The general desire or willingness of someone to do something.
Dedication – The quality of being dedicated or committed to a task or purpose.
Being motivated to train can be tough because you have to FEEL like doing it. Motivation comes and goes depending on your life circumstances.
Being dedicated requires a different mindset of follow through, regardless of whether you feel like it or not! In my opinion, having a plan to follow is essential if your goal is to be dedicated to your pole practice!
There’s nothing wrong with being a motivated pole dancer, I’m that kinda pole dancer! In my personal practice I dance and work on new things when I feel like it. On the flip side, I’m dedicated to my online students and the pole community, so every day, whether I feel like it or not, I work on new content and try to answer questions and help others in our community.
I’m newly dedicated to my health and fitness once again. I really missed feeling dedicated to something that’s just for me, and lifting weights fits that space right now. I train 4-5 days a week, weather I feel tired, sad or too busy because I know the results are worth pushing myself to make time. I feel so much better mentally and physically when I prioritize working out. A happy side effect is feeling more motivated to dance and learn new tricks just for me.
So, which pole dancer are you? Motivated or Dedicated?
I’d love to offer some guidance for both styles of home pole dancers! Below are ideas for both styles of pole dancer.
MOTIVATED pole dancers, this doesn’t require a plan, you can go with the flow, enjoy pole when you feel like it. Here are some suggestions for you!
