I want this to happen just as much as you do. Or at least that should be the way it should be. If you don’t want it as much as we do, then you need to take a long hard look at yourself.
Re-evaluate why you are doing this, what does your health really mean to you, and then make the choice whether you should willy nilly skip sessions without being too bothered about it.
We go to a lot of lengths to help you show up, to motivate you and to coach you. To prepare programmes that will work for you like no other, and do a lot of extra stuff like prevention and recuperation from injuries.
In short, we throw the kitchen sink at you. You will perform better at your job/business if you exercise, that’s flat out true. You moods will be better, you will sleep better and you will generally be a nice person to be around.
So there is no way on this earth you can want it LESS than me. It’s not always to come to the gym but you had better be busting a gut to get to us. Show us that respect because we DEEPLY want to help you.
We live and breathe it, having a gym business is a 24/7 business as theres always something going on. Getting fitter and healthier is of paramount importance to your wellbeing, and gets to the very heart of what you are trying to achieve and really want it life.
Get healthy, get energetic and get passionate for what really matters in life.
Re-commit to making it the amount of times you promised yourself and us at the start, and stick to your word.
It’s the ONLY way to do it and have the success you really crave.
I generally don’t like taking risks. It makes me feel uneasy, it becomes gut-wrenching and I can feel sick for hours when I am agonising over an important decision even if its for the better, and I can sometimes feel worse even after I made it.
Then calm appears a day or two later and life seems “normal” all of a sudden, and most of the time I am glad I took the chance and went for it.
The other risks I don’t want to take is choosing not to exercise. I know this lack of action over time would cause me problems physically, mentally and change my outlook in life for the worse. This would be a MASSIVE risk and I’m determined not to take it.
Another big risk I don’t want to take is having a takeaway on monday night, then Wednesday night and maybe twice the weekend.
I don’t want my arteries to clog up and push my chances of a heart attack up. I know if buckets of KFC start piling up in my car or house, I need to get a grip. Without sounding patronising, I really don’t want to feel that low in energy, with all that rubbish inside of me pretending to be real food and causing deep damage to my mood, my blood pressure and my life in general.
Always see your healthy lifestyle choices as a LIFE-ENHANCEMENT and not a risk.
If you have a family like me and want to live a higher quality of life, I am taking a risk by NOT exercising and I am leaving my family down and myself, I am taking a risk with my health if I’m eating fast food all the time because I will end up irritable, falling into ill health and setting a terrible example that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
The way I view life is determined by the way I eat, how much exercise I do and those whom I decide to hang out with. I can’t afford to have low ambition, to live a life worried about my health and I can’t afford zero energy.
Don’t take risks with your health, because you’d be nothing without good health. Nothing wrong with treats now and again, but when they become every day or a few times a week, you need a serious chat with yourself about where you are heading.
