Our species has spent most the last hundred years trying to make life as easy and physically undemanding as possible. Neither you nor I have to be active to survive. This means that physical activity today has to be a conscious choice in a world built to suppress it. That, my friend, is an uphill battle if there ever was one. So, forgive yourself a little for struggling.
But at the same time, we can make that hill much easier to climb by eliminating the same motivational mistakes; errors that are costing you time and money, and causing you tonnes of frustration.
Willpower and “discipline” are inadequate in the long game. They can’t make up for a love-hate relationship with physical activity (hate to do it, but love the results). Love HAS to lead. That’s what my interviews with the loyally active have taught me. Sure, there’s a sprinkle of willpower along the way. But make no mistake, willpower is only a garnish, not the main dish for the loyal.
In my work, you’ll learn something much stronger than the “willpower way.” Fitness isn’t a finish line, it’s a relationship you’ll be in for the rest of your life. To find a lasting marriage that brings all the benefits, you’ll have to quit playing the same old games.
It’s not as hard as you might think. To learn more about what I mean, download a free chapter of Feel Like It.
All the best,
