February Week 2 & 3

We've had a great last couple of weeks. I think everyone is getting over the shock of training and hopefully is getting used to it and looking forward to it by now. If not, hang in there. You should be proud of what you are doing. The majority of people would rather sit on the sidelines than to join in the game. You are not the majority. You are changing your life for the better and I guarantee you that you won't regret it. Hopefully when you wake up a little sore here and there you also feel that since of pride about knowing that you are a little stronger, a little tougher, and a little more fit with every workout.

Thanks for sticking with us.

You Can Lead a Horse to Water...


I am the coach of a 6 and 7 year old boys basketball team. It has been an incredible test of patience. These kids can only understand so much and perform to a certain level at such a young age. My goal is to teach them more about the game while also teaching them new skills and for them to have fun in the process. But I will have to admit that it is still a competition on game days and I find myself wishing that I could just do it for them when the game is on the line. The fact is that I can teach them the best that I know how and try my best to prepare them but when game time comes, I can't do it for them.

The same goes for training. As a trainer, I can prepare great workouts, teach technique and have open classes available but I can't do the workouts for you. You have to be willing to do it yourself. When it is too hot or cold outside, or you have had a tough day at work, you are the one that has to decide to workout. The same goes with diet. You may workout 2 hours a week or 10 hours a week but what about the rest of that 168 hour week? You have to decide how you will spend that time and what you will fuel your body with.

We are all ultimately responsible for our fitness levels. No one can do it for you. You have to do it for yourself. I think it is funny when some of my clients get on to me about killing them in their workout. I have to remind them that all I did was give them a workout to do and started the clock. They decided how hard they would push it. It is amazing what a great tool that stopwatch really is. Again, I didn't tell them how hard and fast to go, they decided that on their own. All I did was lead the horse to water. You have to decide whether to drink.

No Regrets

With technology these days there are hundreds of acronyms most of which I have no idea the meaning of. I have created my own acronym that I will refer to as (WIRT) which simply means, Will I Regret This. You can ask this about virtually everything you do in life. The answers may vary from person to person but some are really pretty obvious. Will I regret eating this entire chocolate pie? Will I regret spending $300 on lottery tickets? Will I regret dropping out of school? These are pretty obvious. Chances are more than likely that you would regret these things.

My wife has been using this line for several weeks now in relation to our training programs. She says things about how you will never regret working out hard and being in the best shape of your life. You will never regret being able to fit into that new bikini this summer. You will never regret investing your time and money into something that can improve and possibly add years to your life. Now on the other hand, you may regret not doing any of these things. You may regret being unhealthy and have a poor quality of life. You may regret not ever feeling comfortable in your own clothes. You may regret not investing some time and money into taking care of yourself. I can guarantee you that if you don't spend the time and money to take care of yourself now, you will have to in the future.

Remind yourself of (WIRT) when you make some of these decisions in the future. I bet you won't regret it.
