The chosen few

I was out training with some clients this morning and was chatting about how many people with in this particular client’s workplace (lend lease) take advantage of the company sponsored exercise sessions that are generously put on. It was about 8 people from about 100 he said. I was kind of shocked at first and then realised that that is about average in our society. They say about 10% of people get regular vigorous exercise. Is this exercise gig really such a well protected secret or do we just think there is an easier path to feeling good? I am not sure about the answer to that but the cliche of all cliches springs to mind. Anything worth having is usually worked hard for. One foot in front of the other folks until you don’t have to think about it anymore. Even good things can become habits.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
