Eren Pedraza is a trainer at Bucktown
Eren says “This workout is just as much as a physical workout as it is mental. I believe that 80% of life is psychology and 20% is mechanics. This means in order to create an extraordinary life, we must first mentally create a clear compelling vision of the change we wish to see.
How does this tie into fitness? We need to practice shifting our focus throughout each exercise with intention. How? Become an artist! Literally picture shaping and sculpting each body part as you work it. How do you want your change to look, grow, and become!?”
