Every new person that wants to join our gym starts with a conversation. It’s during these conversations that we learn the true reasons why people are looking to make a change. People say, they want to “get in shape” or “lose weight”. However, the next question is usually what makes the tear ducts swell.
Why do you want to “get in shape”? Why do you want to “lose weight?”
Such a simple question. Often such a difficult answer.
There’s a reason why people fail at their resolutions to make a change. There’s a reason why most gym memberships go unused.
Think about all the amazing things that people have accomplished on this planet. If there’s a big enough “WHY”, the “WHAT” doesn’t matter.
What’s some of the “Why’s” that brought people to tears and put a lump in my throat;
– “I was at the amusement park with my daughter and we needed to get off a ride because the belt wouldn’t fit around me.”
– “My entire family is obese. I don’t want to be like them. I don’t want my children to think that the way it has to be.”
– “I’m getting to that age (48) where I start getting calls of friends I grew up with are dying of things they could have prevented.”
– “My doctor told me if I don’t do something soon, I’ll die before my son turns 10.”
– “I need to be a better role model for my kids.”
– “My doctor told me I have diabetes. I’m afraid of what is going to happen.”
– ”I want to be healthy enough to have another baby.”
Not all of these people joined our gym. I’m certain they each told themselves the same narrative that got them to their current state of health. For their sake, I hope they get help somewhere.
When you’re ready. When your “Why” is greater than any excuse you prefer to tell yourself; let us know.
We’ll be here to help.
