So, it’s October, this is that time of the year where we’re coming off of summer vacation, school’s back in, holidays are right around the corner and we’re all busy! You know what else, it’s also the time when most of us start to let our fitness go. Then we end up packing on some extra weight, eating more during the holidays and next thing you know it’s January and we’re wondering why we look so fat in the holiday pics.
Hmmmm, could it be because we didn’t make ourselves a priority? It’s easy to get busy, I get it. I’m a dad and a husband, we both work full time jobs and run our own fitness company. It’s tough, but the bottom line is you have to make yourself a priority. You have to make the time to workout, make the time to educate yourself on proper nutrition. Make the time to reach out to people like us for help! Trust me, accountability is the best tool for success. If you didn’t need it, you’d already done it by now…..wouldn’t ya?
So here’s one of the solutions we’ve come up with. We’re doing some Fitness Challenges base around programs that we know and love like P90X, Insanity, Asylum and Turbofire. We’re also working w/ people on using Shakeology during the challenges to maximize the results. But the bottom line is that we’re using these challenges to surround like minded people with others who need the support and want to reach the same goals. Alisha’s currently halfway through with a group doing Insanity and I recently started (last week) a FB group with about 10 people doing Insanity the Asylum. I think Alisha (who had never done a full round of Insanity) is realizing how hard it is, but she’s pushing through along with her group and they’re bonding and pushing each other though it. They know it sucks on some days and it’s hard, but they know they have other people depending on them to stick with it….with them.
So my point to all this is….don’t let this last quarter of the year be like the last year or last month. Do something different about your fitness. Get up, take the initiative and join an accountability group. Take the plunge! I know it’s scary….but your health is worth it. And you might be surprised what it’s like when realize "Wow, I can do this!".
We’re starting another challenge in a couple weeks (end of October). Reach out to us today if you’d like to be a part of it and what program (if you know) you might be interested in.
In the words of Shaun T……"We got you….." Now let’s do it.
Here’s one of my videos I do for my accountability group, we do this daily!
