“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life,” wrote Robert Louis Stevenson in Familiar Studies of Men and Books.
Simple as that goal may sound most of us get caught up in routine behavior and therefore never come remotely close to realizing our full potential. From a health point of view it is when we let go or fall behind ourselves that we experience a life filled with health Issues.
Look around in any gym and notice how most people spend too much of their time simply going through the motions. The best place to look is in the cardio section.
I’ve come to a point in which I dislike the term cardio in the gym setting because for a huge majority it has come to mean light exercise. As a result most individuals are not challenging their body when it comes to tapping into new energy levels, which results in a greater impact on your health, body composition, and performance.
Most of you is undiscovered because you don’t realize how much potential you have. If you always do what you have always done, you’ll always get what you have always got, and you’ll always feel what you always felt.
Be more do more. It’s about looking inside and discovering your strengths, and recognizing how much more potential you really have. Challenge yourself to be more enduring, and to do more and go a further. If you don’t change the way you do things, exercise, eat, live your life, or make decisions, you will never grow, mature or feel healthy or better about yourself as a whole. You have to be the change you want to see in your life.
“You can be in the best shape of your life and be functionally younger no matter what your age or circumstance -if you choose so- because 90% of your potential is not only untapped and unused, but also undiscovered.” – Tim Hansel
Anything worth achieving, comes with a price, they come as the result of time, sacrifice and pain, because life is hard. Being physically fit may not be the most essential thing about you, but it is the vehicle that carries what is essential.
Health and vitality are not going to develop in your body until you make conditions favorable for them through proper eating, water consumption, adequate sleep and metabolic raising exercises.
Our lives should be characterized by powerful strong, aerobically fit muscles, a healthy heart, strong bones, good immune system, high sex drive and an alert, inquisitive, optimistic mind geared toward working in groups and building strong networks. This is why you exercise.
Personal Training SF can show you how to get there via proper nutritional counseling and exercise programming, but I must encourage you not to start slowly. It is much better to make a sharp break from the past and a serious commitment towards the future.
