What You Can Learn About Fitness From Last Night's Game....

What a nail biter!

For those who watched the Super Bowl (are there really people who don't watch it?) you witnessed first hand what looked to be a blowout. 

What was supposed to be a high scoring, close game, just didn't live up to the hype...

For the first 3 quarters...

Brady looked off, dropped passes, and the Falcons were hot. 

Things were not going the way of the Patriots...

As fans (myself included) we had counted them out. 

We were checked out, and just waiting for a really good commercial to give us a good laugh so that we could take a break from the misery we were watching.

But they didn't give up...

The fourth quarter was one for the history books and they were able to rally with 25 unanswered points, tie it, go into overtime, and win it with a touchdown. 

So, I'm still in shock, this will be replayed on those "NFL Greatest Moments" for years to come...

But it got me thinking...

Last night's game was just like the journey of improved fitness and lifestyle.

You come out of the gate strong...you're all jacked up and excited to start making changes. 

And then you realize it's a little bit harder than you thought. 

You get beat up, and before you realize it, you're way off track. 

You see, most people would give up right there. 

Most teams would have started packing their bags at half-time.

But what we need to reminded of is it's not over until it's over, and we're going to try our hardest until the whistle blows. 

That's the game of fitness...

It can be discouraging when you're trying everything you possibly can, and you still can't see any measurable results.

But don't give up!

Keep trying, stay consistent, and have some confidence that if you keep working things will prevail. 

Because as you're pushing and grinding, you all of the sudden find something that's working for you, you find a routine that fits into your lifestyle, and you start marching down the field. 

It will be a constant battle, but eventually, if you keep pushing hard enough, you will come out on top. 

And just like the game of football and the New England Patriots, in fitness, there are three things that are essential for good results...

1. A player willing to give it their best.

2. A coach bringing out the best in them. 

3. A community of teammates bringing out the best in each other. 

1% Better, right?
