A few months ago, Mondays were a day I dreaded. They just have that ever present rain cloud that everyone seems to be under.

Fast forward to now.

Monday is a day that represents opportunity, excitement, knowledge, and importance. My team has opened my eyes and changed how I see the world. By working with positive people who reinforce healthy habits and a good work ethic, you find yourself adopting their mindset. Not only do I have so many more opportunities to help people, I am also helping myself. Being a coach has opened so many doors, and even a few windows. Madison and I both get to listen to peoples needs, and help them get there.

Watching people on their journey to being healthy, fit, or financially free is the best thing ever.

It is that first step that makes the biggest impact.

I am thankful today that Madison and I chose to become Coaches, to get healthy, to be fit, and to help others do the same.

What are you going to be thankful to yourself for in 3 months? A year? 2?

We can help you look back and be proud.

 

Hey guys! Now that you are all back home from the long weekend of s’mores, hot dogs and chips (don’t deny it!)… I want to expand on this quote. I believe it applies to many people who just don’t seem to have the best mindset for living a healthy lifestyle. I know people who absolutely DREAD their workouts, and will make any excuse not to go to the gym. On the flip side, there are others who can’t stand eating healthy. Do not view your workout as a punishment for eating bad, and do not view healthy foods as punishment for not working out. These are two staples that go hand-in-hand, and both must be met with enthusiasm.

How many times has one of your attempts at a diet failed? How many New Years resolutions to go to the gym more have you kept? With the right mindset and enough drive, you can accomplish way more than you think!

Make your workouts fun! Go biking with a friend!

The best part of this lifestyle is the ability to enjoy it.

Working with clients who do not believe themselves to be capable of something can be very frustrating sometimes, because no one really knows how far they can go until they are pushed. If you think you can’t do something, you’re right. Once you set boundaries on what your body’s capabilities are, you never reach any goals or achieve much progress. Your mind will quit long before your body has reached it’s limit. Over-thinking our workouts or food choices will often lead to underachieving. If you remind yourself every day to push a little bit harder or train a little bit longer, you will do yourself a favor.

Mind over matter.

Do not let your mind be reason for your body’s failure. Push yourself. Fail. Allow yourself to try again until you succeed.

Remember, you can either be your own worst enemy, or your best motivator.
