Christmas gives us a chance to breathe more easily, and a rest is coming, but it’s not christmas yet and I sincerely thank those of you who are giving it all in december just to feel your best, and you are not settling for mediocrity, you have higher standards than that and you are shooting for the moon.
This new programme is exactly what you need, it’s exactly what you need to drive you up to the next level both physically and mentally.
You need to be strong in all areas, you need to be more flexible all over and you need to have high concentration levels to carry all of the new exercises out to the level they meant to be performed at.
This is the challenge in front of you and the challenge I’m very positive all you are capable of meeting.
Look for more out of yourself because your body is ready to adapt, look to drag yourself up to the next level because that initial period of discomfort will lead to you getting used to being an even better athlete.
20 days to Christmas so let’s give it everything.
Hitting it hard on new programme day is re-inventing yourself every 3 weeks. That feeling can’t be beaten, because although you know it hurts and make you uncomfortable, it’s going to 100 times better than that January feeling when you have had time off, and it feels as if you have started all over again.
I like teaching new stuff all the time to it keeps me fresh and fired up, and keep us as a gym pushing new boundaries.
You will find lots of excuses not to exercise today, but they are excuses and not good reasons. By just keeping going, you are enhancing your life greatly and those around you.
When you think about it, everyone around you depends on you to have high energy because of the demands of life. If you feel sluggish, then what help can you be to others? You will get more irritable the more people ask of you, and you will feel they are picking on you.
The reality is that you have dampened your expectations in life, you have settled for mediocrity, and you deep down that being less fit you are capable of far less than when you were top of your game.
Harsh words but we have all been in that situation when we kid ourselves. True meaning of Christmas is spending time with those we truly care about, and those people want us to be fit and healthy too because they care about you.
Do your best, the least you can give yourself is 3 weeks to keep your physical and emotional self in great shape.
