Couch or Curl?

Jan 31, 2013

I hear a lot of people say, “I’m not really up to it right now” or “I’ll do it later.” It drives me crazy when people complain that they can’t achieve the results they want or that they are unhappy with themselves…..but can manage to come up with an excuse each time an opportunity arises where they have to apply physical effort and endure muscle fibers tearing and rebuilding in conjunction. Rome wasn’t built in a day and the physiques that we seek to achieve certainly aren’t either. We have to change our mindset, lifestyle, and habits to reach are goal and image of wellness.

Does this mean that we need to conjure drastic and rapid change in our lives? Unless you have the fortitude of a Spartan, then NO! To make lifestyle and lifelong change, adjustments should be done in moderation and short term achievable goals should be set! Instead of trying to lose 10 pounds in 5 months try doing 2 pounds in one month. When you reach those short term goals your confidence swells, making it much more likely for you to succeed long term!

Last but not least, we all know how comfy the couch is (I understand!), but the couch will be there forever, the gym closes as 9…manage your time and set your priorities.


Schedule a complimentary fit evaluation so we can get to know you and your goals and build you a customized training program to reach them.
