Be The Change!

One of the most powerful ways to not only stay committed to your fitness and health routine but to actually fall in love with it is by supporting and recruiting those you care about to join you.

 Less than 7% of people in the western world are “chronic exercisers” – meaning they’re consistent with exercise multiple days per week for an unending timespan.

 That’s sad and scary.

 But one of the ways to ensure you get into the 7% is to lift up those around you.

 Lead them to join you in health. Recruit them in your mission to make everyone and everything in your life stronger, happier, and more vibrant.

 Don’t let them buy their own excuses (and you don’t buy your own either).

 Because you know you love and care about those who are close to you.

 You want the best for their health, strength, confidence, and more.

 Start the change and be the change.

 Take them by the hand and ensure that you and those you love never sit on the sidelines of life again.

 

When You Want To Give Up

Humans, by nature, are not designed to be crazy enthusiastic about going to the gym or getting fit.

 Truthfully, our DNA wants us to do what we have to do to hunt and gather food then reserve our energy supply.

 You see, our wiring hasn’t caught up with how quickly we’ve progressed as a species over thousands of years.

 Even 100 years ago, food was much harder to come by than it is today.

 So, between the temptation of any food you can imagine at your fingertips constantly and the fact that our DNA has us wired to conserve energy, it’s no wonder more people than ever struggle with their weight.

 And I believe this wiring is one of the reasons so many people struggle to stay consistent in their fitness and why the yo-yo approach is so real.

 Since you’re not required to gather food to eat and you’re probably not going to be chased by wild animals randomly like our ancestors, we’ve got to find another way to stay on track. J

 Here are a few things to consider…

 Think about the feeling and the end result. How will you feel in your skin 24/7 when you achieve your goal? I promise that alone is worth it.

 Acknowledge your DNA and do it anyway. J You’re not too lazy, too tired, or whatever the thing may be. Regardless of whether or not you want to take care of your body, don’t even give yourself the choice.

 Think 6 months into the future. Things will either be better or worse with your health and body. What choice do you want to make?

 I hope that gives you some good things to think about and motivation when times feel tough!
