THIS WILL NOT BEAT ME Motivation coach Martin Hall believes we all have an inner fighter inside us and it can help when it comes to exercise. He says: "Inside your psyche is a warrior. It's part of your fight-or-flight response and can be engaged when you challenge yourself. Repeating this statement will help you access it." LOOK HOW FAR YOU'VE COME Reflecting on progress is a great way of reasserting the positive changes you've accomplished. Chris Jones, coach of the GB triathlon team, says: "As part of the athletes' mental prep, I ask them to recall all the workouts they've done. It gives instant confidence." THINK OF YOUR END GOAL: Talk to yourself, be positive and this will spur you on when you are feeling tired or unenthusiastic.
