You’re always looking for something different.
You’re not sure what to do.
Every day you tell yourself “it’ll be different today”.
We tell ourselves that today will be different.
That we won’t hit “snooze” and instead get up and exercise.
Or that, on our way home from work; we won’t drive past the gym this time.
How do I know this?
Because I’ve spent years doing the same!
I’ve spent years saying “I’ll lose weight tomorrow”, “I’ll get up and go to the gym before work” or “I’ll have the healthy option instead of the full English breakfast”!
Your spouse is tired of hounding you to do something about your health. “If you don’t want to do it for yourself, do it for your kids”, they say.
You get wound up at them for bringing up the subject, so eventually, they relent. “It’s not worth fighting over”.
Or is it?
Do you want to make it to your kid’s high school graduation?
Live to walk them down the aisle at their wedding?
Would you like to be the fun grandparent that can play with the kids; or the one that gets winded after 2 minutes and can’t get down on the ground to play because you know you can’t get back up?!
Do you want to follow a family member to the grave because you didn’t make the change they should have?!
We have people every week contacting us because they want something different. Everyone has their own “why” they want to start.
The conversation usually starts with them saying they want to look better.
However, after asking “why?” a few more times, it gets down to the real reasons.
Ask yourself “why?”
No one here cares if you can do a pull-up or even 10!
No one cares if you haven’t done a push up in 30 years.
No one here cares where you are when you get started.
But everyone cares when you start.
Because, unlike your day to day life, here we celebrate even the smallest of successes!
It’s what motivates us. And it will motivate you.
Don’t look at anyone else in the gym. Just the one person you see in the mirror each morning.
Be your own superhero.
