Make The Switch...

I had the awesome opportunity to meet with five wonderful ladies last night who joined the Spurling Family and will be starting on Monday.

If you’re reading this, welcome :)

I always ask people “why now” when they are sitting with me on their first day.

I get everything from “I finally have the time” to a life story filled with tears and frustration.

Last night one client made the comment that it was a message she had read from me, a mindset shift.

Today, I’m going to share that message again because I think it’s so important.

"I should workout"

"I have to go to the gym today"

We need to make the switch. 

That's one of our biggest goals at Spurling.

Fitness should be something you GET to do not HAVE to do. 

"I get to workout."

"I get to go to the gym today."

Fitness for most has always been seen as a chore, it's in the same category as going to the dentist or folding laundry. 

You know you need to do it, but you really don't want to. 

Why is that?

In my opinion...

It comes down to two things.

Safety & Fun. 

Most people don't know what to do in the gym. 

They walk in, see all the equipment, maybe mess with a few things or walk on the treadmill, and they walk out. 

They do that for a little while, get frustrated they're not seeing results, and quit. 

They are afraid they're going to hurt themselves, and if they don't hurt themselves, they get bored because there is no part of walking into a scary place that you don't what anything is that screams fun. 

Our goal at Spurling is to provide a safe environment (#1), where you don't have to worry about a thing since you have a professional coach telling you what to do at every workout, with a support community keeping it fun and engaging every step of the way. 

Whether it's with us, or somewhere else, if you want to make a change, if you want to have success in fitness, you need to make the mental switch. 

Fitness should be something you GET to do, not HAVE to do. 

You see, the ultimate goal is to make the mental shift away from once you "lose those 20lbs" you'll be done. 

Sure, it's important to have goals, I more than anyone I know, am a firm believer in goals, but we're never done. 

We don't hit a goal and then hang up the shoes. 

We don't just do fitness for a month or two and be done with it. 

If you have that mindset you probably also have the mindset that it's something you "have to do."

And that's okay right now...

But I would challenge you to work on making the switch. 

Fitness, getting better, 1% Better, is a motto we firmly believe must be inside you until the day you die. 

Find something you enjoy doing, challenge yourself, step outside your comfort zone, and stick with it. 

Is it easy?


But anything worth having is never easy. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,

Doug Spurling
