Want To Get In Shape? Well, Here's What I Think Of You

Mar 15, 2008
I've been a personal trainer for about 4 years now, so I've talked to a lot of people looking to improve their health and/or physiques.

And after speaking with them, I realize that we're all so much alike. I'm willing to bet you're just like us, whether you want to admit it or not.

So, I want to take a minute to tell you, honestly, what I think of you, me, and everyone else I've had the opportunity to speak with, either in person or online.

What you're capable of achieving is absolutely amazing. But what you're willing to settle for is so much less.

You have more vast potential in you than you'll ever know, but for some reason, it goes unrealized.

I can speak from experience that anything you can THINK of achieving can be done.

Just a few short years ago, when I was 240 pounds and VERY overweight, competing in a bodybuilding show was the furthest thing from my mind.

But when it entered my mind, the wheels began turning, an image formed, and less than 3 months later, I was onstage wearing nothing but a small piece of fabric ;-)

But losing 50 pounds of fat all began with a thought.

Believe me, success in reaching your fitness goals is mental, not physical.

Once you form an idea of the body you want, you then have to create enough desire to go after it. Combine that with a proper plan and there's absolutely NO WAY you can fail.

Like I mentioned earlier, I've trained a lot of people, people who are like you and I. Some succeeded incredibly, while others did not. What made all the difference?

2 things:

1. Those that succeeded in their fitness goals KNEW just a little bit more than those that didn't.

2. Those that succeeded in their goals also DID a little bit more than those that didn't.

So, as you can see, knowledge is only power if it's put to use. And every single person I've talked with has within themselves their own power to change.

Do YOU have it in you?

A person can or cannot achieve something based solely on the measure of their thinking.

So take thinking time. Take planning time. Decide what it is you want to achieve with your fitness goals. Then just go after it. After all, it's a personal decision to do so. It just takes action, consistent action.

So, whether you feel you're ready or not to get the body you want, begin today. Begin right now. Use what you have, the knowledge you possess, to get moving.

Then, you can always add to that knowledge as you go.
But start doing. Then you can start having.

Again, what you're capable of achieving is nothing short of amazing. But what you're willing to settle for is usually mediocre.

You have more potential than you know what to do with.
Start realizing it.

And that, dear reader, is what I think of you.
