Training has a specific goal or destination in mind. You form and structure your workouts around reaching your goals. Goals are paramount. If something doesn’t get you closer to them, it’s disregarded. It’s all about getting results and you only have time for those things that produce them.
Exercise is the opposite.
Training takes the long-term view. It designs each day’s workout around goals. Every set and every rep moves you closer and makes you better.
Exercise requires less commitment, feels less risky, and requires little of you. Training requires forethought, planning, and accountability to results.
Discipline takes the long-term view and training is the preferred approach. It is planned, structured and delivers results time and again.
