PSA for ALL clients!
I know what you are thinking, “What a creative title for the blog this week, nice one Tanner.” And you are absolutely right; the title is lacking some ingenuity and creativity. It lacks certain pep in the step I guess you could say. The reason for this is because I have noticed this week that several of my clients have been having a rough week, and I would like to take some time to convey how proud I am of everyone and give a little advice on how to push through the tough times.
The overall point to be made here is that there are going to be weeks when you are feeling like the title of this article: blah and more blah. I am here to tell you that is okay! Seriously, it is okay to feel less than 100% sometimes. You know what I think one of the best things in this world is? When someone is not having a good week, or feeling unmotivated to get their butt moving and they make it into the gym anyways. Honestly, what amazing dedication you have if you get to the gym during a week of feeling burned out. We are here to help and love to see our clients especially on days they are struggling to be there.
I get it, life is busy, life is hard, and sometimes life seems like it is intentionally getting in your way. Bills gotta be paid, the alarm clock goes off at 6 a.m. every day, the kids need to be dropped off at soccer practice and of course the laundry has to be folded again. There are days when you just want to throw in the towel and call it quits and yet there is something different about you, there is something special.
The gym is this beautiful palace of discipline. You are a student, learning the art of discipline and teaching yourself that giving up is not an option, no matter how you feel. Unlike other people in this world, you push through the hard stuff, and you make working out a priority. Do not ever forget that whenever you make it to the gym and get your butt kicked, you are the top 1% of people that do not just sit on the couch and drown in their stress and hard times. Please, always keep your eyes on the prize, and do not forget why you do this. If you are feeling this way, now would be a great time to talk to your trainer about taking a look at new goals and pushing forward. Do not let one day or one week define you or who you are in the gym.
