• Are excuses keeping you average?

    Excuses are something that everybody makes. I’ve written about them before on another blog, and I will probably write about them again.

    But when something is as important as working out and People keep making excuses even when their condition keeps getting worse it really makes me mad. Because you only have one life and you only have one body but yet some people waste both. They waste their body and they waste their life.

    And why do they do that?

    A lot of people don’t know what to do. Or they know the journey ahead it Is going to be extremely difficult and they make excuses as to why it can’t be done. Probably because they have tried before and failed.

    And when you keep failing and you don’t know where it is truly want to go it makes it so easy to quit and come up with excuses so you don’t have to go through the pain again.

    The thing is there isn’t one situation that is unique to human being these days— not one. There has been some person in your exact situation who has risen up and taken control of their life.

    Knowing why you want something, makes it a lot easier to get knocked down and keep coming back for more.

    My opinion every single person should be working out. Because you should be thinking about the older you. The senior you. The you 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years older then you are now.

    Most people would not walk up to their grandma or their grandpa or walk up to some senior citizen 80 or 90 years old and Punch them in the face, only the truly wretched and disgusting human beings would do that, right?

    But that is basically what you are doing to yourself when you don’t workout— can you make excuses about why you can’t workout, why you can’t start. Everybody has the same 24 hours in a day why do some people find the time and some peoples just put it off? It’s Because of priorities

    Priorities

    We all have them.

    Family, school, work tend to be the biggest. But working out should be one of the top as well. Because it enhances everything. It makes everything better.

    If you aren’t working out, right at around the age of 40 (I’ve heard as young as 30, all the way up to 50), you start sarcopenia. This is the loss of muscle mass– of lean muscle tissue.

    Hilliard fitness classes Muscle has a lot to do with how well you live your life and perform your functions.

    The #1 cause of death via accidents from 16-65 is car. After the age of 65 it is falls.

    Let’s look at why…….

    Sarcopenia starts around 40, by 65 you’ve lost about about 25 pounds of muscle (giving an average of 1 pound per year).

    What does do for you— obviously strength— endurance, coordination, flexibility, endurance, balance…. oh balance. And let’s not forget bone health or loss of it. Strength training helps keeps bones strong. Weak bones and loss of strength, coordination, balance, mobility lead to falls…. brittle bones break easier.

    The number one entry into retirement homes is from falls. Broken hips, pelvis, legs, backs, knees, etc…. doesn’t matter. The average lifespan after a fall after entering a retirement home is 1-2 years.

    Why? Can’t move, bed ridden, can’t exercise….. heart starts weaken, brain starts to deteriorate, hormones drop….. and you get depressed— have you ever visited a retirement home, I did when my grandma was starting her decline, it was one of the most depressing things I’ve ever experienced– watching some of those people just do their ‘everyday’ thing. I never, ever want to experience that….. I’m going out on my own terms!

     

    And with that I come to an email I got from a man. The name has been changed to protect the identity but he is well over 300 pounds in his 40’s or  50’s  and in definite need of some training. He had signed up for both our fitness program and our yoga. Both he no showed for. I sent him an email trying to figure out why:

    His Response:

    I will not be attending your gym as it looked like it was in disrepair with several safety concerns.

    Now he had come in beforehand to fill out a waiver form. Unfortunately at the time, the office next door to us pipes had burst. This was in January, something that is very common. Our place was soaked. So we had about 20 green fans and dehumidifiers in our studio. It sucked but it was obviously needed.

    The only class we cancelled was Yoga later that day. But every other class went on without a hitch. We had move our clients to certain areas and couldn’t use other areas as they were too wet, but not one client complained or missed class.

    Things happen. I hope ‘Warren’ reads this because I emailed him back explaining the situation and told him that everything was back to normal with our studio– no response.

    I don’t know Warren’s life. Maybe he’s never had anything bad happen to him ever. Like a flat tire, car breaking down, some electronic breaking….I don’t know.

    What I do know is Warren and hundreds of thousands to millions of others just like him are going to die, sooner then later. And the quality of life leading up to that death is not going to fun. I don’t mean to be a debbie downer but these are the facts. People are dying everyday, that could be prevented by some simple lifestyle choices.

    The longer a person waits the harder it gets to come back from. And the longer it will take.
    So if you know someone who is in this situation or if it is YOU, then you need to take action.
    Mindset, Nutrition, and Fitness. In that order. Needs to be fixed and fixed ASAP.
    I and my coaches  have developed the programs to fix all 3.
    But it takes a person who wants to change. I can’t make anybody do anything. It has to come from them. And only when they are ready.
    Are you making excuses? Do you know someone who is?
    Please share this blog post with someone who you care about. This is obviously a subject that touches my heart, because I want to help everyone, but through the years I know it’s not possible. Mindset, nutrition, fitness.
    These guys could easily make excuses too. But they obviously don’t!

      I would like to show appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from such a trouble. Right after surfing through the the web and coming across strategies which were not helpful, I figured my life was well over. Existing devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you have resolved all through your good article is a serious case, as well as the kind which might have negatively affected my career if I had not noticed your blog post. Your ability and kindness in maneuvering every aspect was important. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a step like this. It’s possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the reliable and effective help. I won’t think twice to endorse the sites to any individual who desires counselling about this area.

      An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you really should write a lot more on this topic, it may possibly not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. Towards the next. Cheers
