Struggle Finding Inspiration to Exercise?

I don’t always feel inspired to work out or eat right, and I miss workouts or devour a large two-topping pizza in one sitting once in awhile.

But I don’t beat myself up over the setbacks. And I know what to do, diet and training wise, to quickly reverse course and get back on the wagon.

Consistency is the key…

I read a piece online about a guy who completed hiking the Appalachian trail a few weeks ago.The ENTIRE damn thing.
Over 2,000 miles and 5 straight months (April-August).

He was quoted as saying his main focus was on reaching the final summit in Maine. His ultimate goal. The breathtaking view from Mt. Katahdin. Tunnel vision.


All the change that he was creating within himself…
All the mind shifts that happened…
All the growth…


It came during the trenches. And the valleys. And the obstacles that obstructed his path. And in making the DAILY DECISION to continue to put one foot in front of the other until he got where he wanted to be.

MIND-BLOWING when you take a moment and really thank about it.

Tell me THAT can’t be applied to your fitness pursuits… (or whatever you’re after)

Instant gratification is a rarity. But that seems to be what everyone wants these days.

But usually the reward comes in the difficult journey itself.


NOTHING of value comes easy.

Everything meaningful comes with a struggle.

Yes, everything. From school to athletic development, even childbirth (right, wifey?) — If it’s a notable achievement, it came with considerable work.

Now I’m not saying you shouldn’t try to avoid unnecessary hardship.

Only a fool would not seize an opportunity to make their journey go a little smoother. If you had the choice between going at it alone or with an experienced coach by your side, you’d choose the latter, right?

It’s like taking a paddle boat to that island when you could’ve rode shotgun in a speedboat.

Or trying to learn through trial-and-error, duffing your away around the golf course, instead of hiring a swing coach if you have aspirations of getting onto the PGA Tour.

If you truly want to MASTER something, you’d eventually need a mentor or coach to help maximize your potential, eliminate the second-guessing and keep progress moving in the right direction.

You’ve seen the testimonials and before/afters. I can expedite your journey to the body you want.
