I'm Right There With You...

The other night I was at the front desk of the gym just cleaning a few things up and had a client walk-in, with our schedules, I hadn't seen her in awhile. 

She eluded to not being here, and how hard it is to sometimes get here with work, family, etc. 

I said something along the lines of

"I'm right there with you. We go through the same thing."

Her reply...

"That's really good to hear."

Relatable, right?

I think as fitness professionals we get this reputation that we workout seven days a week and eat nothing but protein shakes and chicken. 

People think that we never struggle, never lack motivation, or don't need accountability. 

News flash: We're humans, too. 

Last night Coach Jeremy and I went out to dinner after the conference we are at. 

It was a long day of travel followed up by day one of the conferences, I just wanted a nice dinner and a cold IPA :) 

So that's what I had. 

Oh, and to top it off, I didn't get a workout in yesterday, either. 

Now, do we want to set an example and "walk the walk."

Of course. 

But the fact of the matter is, there are certain things as humans, regardless of what we do for a living, that we all need. 

Accountability & Support.


Love & Happiness. 

etc, etc.

Next week kicks off the #100WorkoutChallenge at the gym. 

The goal: 100 Workouts between July 1 and December 31. 

I'll be participating in that challenge right alongside the clients. 

I need, you need it, we all need it. 

Accountability, Motivation, Community, Coaching, Support. 

We will never not need it. 

You see it all the time when people try to workout on their own. 

1 out of 100 can do it, most can't. 

I have a fully loaded gym in my garage with everything I need, but I can count on one hand the number of times I've used it. 

We're all going through different things, we all have our struggles, and I wanted to let you know that I'm right there with you, we're right there with you. 

Yes, we aim to set the example, but we're also human too, just like you. 

All we can do is just aim to get a little better each day and keep showing up. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,
