If you have to master different skills in Kung Fu, regular training and workout are a must. Training can help you be familiar with the different movements and techniques in Kung Fu. It can also help keep our mind and body alert which is vital during sparring sessions. One the other hand, workouts can keep you physically active even when you are not training for Kung Fu moves. They can also help build your stamina to overcome tedious Kung Fu trainings.
Although the benefits of Kung Fu training and exercises are known to many people, the lack of motivation discourages them to do these physical activities. This is especially true if you have a tiring week and all you want to do on your free time is to sit on your couch and watch your favorite sports program or to simply rest. Having a motivating factor is vital if you like to consistently train and workout to develop Kung Fu skills.
Making time for Kung Fu may be the last thing in your mind if you are always preoccupied with work and feel worn out at the end of the day. One way to get motivation is to find a companion who will inspire and remind you about your schedule of trainings or workouts. A dedicated companion should also help you find out the type of workout that is most suitable for you.
There are many people who can be your companion during physical activities. You can have your spouse, friend, trainer, son or daughter or even your dog.
Having your spouse for a companion allows you to train while spending more time to build quality relationship with your partner. Your spouse can be your strongest motivator if he or she also likes doing physical activities. He can remind you of your activity schedule and drag you out of bed when needed just so you can train as scheduled. However, if your spouse also lacks interest in physical activities or has a busy schedule to accompany you during training, you may have to find another training buddy.
If you have friends who have the same interest in Kung Fu as you are, you could both become a training companion for each other. You could both schedule a time and day when you could both workout and develop your skills. At the same time, you could also share whatever skills you have that your companion may not know.
Your children could also serve as your training companion. Bringing them during training or practice allows them to develop their interest in Kung Fu and help them learn basic skill and movements even before they begin to have formal trainings.
Lastly, if you cannot find anyone else, consider having a pet dog who can accompany you during outdoor trainings. Dogs are naturally playful and active and they would gladly accompany you during workouts. But choose a bigger breed of dogs for this purpose. For instance, if you already own poodle mixes such as Bichon Poodle, you may want to find a bigger dog that is more suitable for physical activities. Poodles are small dogs that are good as lap dogs but not as training dogs.
It is important to remember that if you lose interest in training for Kung Fu, a companion who can motivate you to go on with your training may be all that you need. Find your Kung Fu companion now and be inspired to train again.
