Don’t Wish for It, Work for It

By Paul and Carolyn Fetters

Where do you want to be 12 months from now health-wise? God willing that year will come anyway whether you are taking care of yourself or not. Would you like to be 20, 30, even 50 or 100 lbs lighter and 100% stronger?

I think that most people who start workout programs put all their energy on the scale, a tape measure, their reflection in the mirror. None of that has anything to do with your health, your wellness, your fitness, your durability, your lack of vulnerability to illnesses and injuries – and that’s what you should focus your energy on.

I feel like it’s all about prioritizing and purpose, if your purpose is more about “I want to do more, feel better, be less vulnerable, be more durable, and actually function well in my own body” then that’s a good way to look at it.

Ultimately at The Training Spot we’re trying to create lifestyle programs through food and fitness. The idea here is to focus on being a better person, a more productive person, a less sick person, a better father, mother, sister, brother, uncle, aunt, a better employee, someone who says ‘yes’ to things that are physically or emotionally challenging, as opposed to what they used to do prior to exercising and eating well.

So I will ask you again, “Where do you want to be 12 months from now?” What are you doing today to arrive there healthy?
