So I had a young client in yesterday (38 years old I think that is young). She says to me something that I wish I had a $1 for every time I have heard these exact words:
“I never have had these problems before”
Yep, those the words that are the starting block words for the sport of MAINTENANCE.
Every heard of it?
I in my opinion think it should be an Olympic Event and everyone gets a gold medal just for participating.
This brings up another question that people ask me:
“What are you training for? The answer to that is easy and always the same; LIFE
It’s a long term commitment and goal. I guess I feel like if you’re going to be here any ways why not feel the best you can?
Fitness is a lifelong goal. So, you are not going to be looking for immediate and dramatic results, but rather long-term, life-changing benefits. If this is not thrilling to you, that’s ok because as soon as you start on the path (I would say in about a week or two) you will GET IT!
You will have to trust me on this one though – the small steps toward total (mind and body) fitness will bring magnificent benefits in the end.
- Embrace small changes
- Minor changes in diet
- Accept good days (or weeks) with bad. You don’t start over – it is the journey!
- Visualize success or as Mike likes to say “keep your eye on the prize”
- Don’t wait because as I like to say “this ain’t a dress rehearsal”
Looks like a great weekend to run the beach, the tide will be great, no wind and sunshine, I promise!
