I am in a Fitness Business Mastermind group and the below was written my Tanja Shaw, who is in my group. I could not say it any better so here are THE FACTS......
You want results. That extra 15, 25, or even 50 pounds should have been gone…like…yesterday, right?
You want to be pain-free but getting off the couch or out of the desk chair seems near impossible?
We all want a better body, to be healthier, to live longer.
But we don’t want to put in the work to get there. Even worse, CHANGE IS SCARY!
People are truly terrified of change and of the unknown.
In order to lose weight, manage pain, get stronger, perform better and alter your body/health in whatever way aligns with your goals, change must happen. And if you’re not mentally ready for it, it’s not the time to try to change. You have to be very mentally aware and focused if you are going to make life-altering changes.
We have an awesome program here at Fitness Together Point Loma, and people seek us out, ready to change and ready to join us.
Every now and then, I sit down with someone who just isn’t ready. I know it in my heart when I see it. And sometimes I don’t get it! Why wouldn’t you want to look and feel better, have great health, live your best life, be vibrant, radiant, and strong, and be PROUD of yourself and your dedication? You can’t put a price tag on that! But I have to reel it back in.
Though eating well and exercising aren’t always the thing I feel like doing, I have to remember that those things are engrained into my life. They are habits. And if people arn’t willing to work on those habits, change can’t happen.
Here’s another funny thing about change…
Sometimes friends and family often don’t like it when YOU change! It makes THEM uncomfortable!
It’s a bizarre concept that I see all the time. We’ve had members whose friends and family members have become very negative about their transformation and positive habit. Sometimes it’s just a look, other times it’s a snide remark, some will even tell the successful person that they look SICK when they simply look fit and healthy.
Bringing down the successful person seems to make the other person feel better. But the truth is that the negative person wishes so badly that they were able to commit to change the way their friend has.
If you’ve committed to change or you’re considering it, I think it’s important to know what to expect. If you see this pop up in your life (and I truly hope it doesn’t!), please remember this message. This is one of the reasons being part of our community here at Fitness Together Point Loma is so powerful.
If you’re ready to embrace change, we’d love to chat. We love helping our members, so click here to let us know or simply hit reply so we can be in touch!
