To be transparent, this is the first time I ever wrote this acronym out and these are the things that I tell people (in some way or fashion) every time they want to know what fitness is to me. I rather enjoy this acronym for fitness. Itâs not all fluff and patronizingly soft. Itâs not all hardcore, in-your-face, stone-blooded âX-TREMEâ either. I believe that is a reason why people stay as unfit as they are; they are not buying what people are trying to sell them. Just as in everything I do, I donât try to sell people on fitness and/or being healthy. What I try to do when someone approaches me about fitness is get them to realize why they are truly talking to me in the first place.
Anytime I encountered a client that would come to workouts; however, would not train in a way to help them reach the goals they set for themselves, we would have a sit-down and talk. Normally what would come up is that they were not completely with me in the beginning. One of the first questions I ask is, âWhy do you want to trainâ; and the responses I would get would always be the same: âI want to be healthy and fitâ. After I get that standard answer, I ask them another question, âIs that the truthâ. Normally they get upset and defensive and state that their reasons are true; then we train, then they donât put forth the effort necessary and then we get to talk and that is when the truth comes out.
The truth is that being healthy isnât a great motivating force for many people. The truth is that we train not only to be healthy; however, also, we train to be sexually attractive, we train so our âExâ sees what they lost, so that we look good in our bathing suits, so that we donât die as early as our unhealthy friends and family members; even more to the point our doctor told us we were going to have a heart-attack and then we did. Revenge, anger, fear, regret, depression, sadness, hopelessness are some truths that people never really want to face. The shame of it all is that we are sold that those are the wrong reasons to want to train. We are told they are shallow and/or judgmental. However, what I state is that as long as it comes from a person with positive intent oneâs reasons for wanting to be fit are valid and sound.
This is my intent for my posts. To look at the truths out there and give my opinions and understandings. I plan on sharing my story and my ways and reasons for training in hopes that others with become more introspective to find the truths that will ignite whatever fuel needs to be lit to get them moving in the direction and on the path they truly wish to follow.
