Working in this industry for 18 years, I have a lot of great stories and memories about clients and their journey with us.
One memory I have is a time when a woman came to one of our studios because she was considering joining and wanting to get more information. As I was giving her a tour, we walked by one of our private training rooms where a trainer was having a client do push-ups.
As we walked by, she remarked, “Oh, I know I’ll never do push-ups! Don’t worry, I don’t have expectations like that.”
About three years later, not only had this client lost over 20 lbs., but she was also exceptionally fit for her age! It would be no big deal for her to do sprint intervals on the treadmill, back squats with the barbell, and of course… push-ups!
Too often people reach a certain age or a point in their life where they think their “running days” or days of doing those high school football workouts are over. And most of the time, that is not the case. It’s just a self-limiting belief that has crept in from years of being inconsistent and uncommitted. You may be far from that point now, but getting back to doing those things shouldn’t feel impossible.
If you stay committed to regular workouts for months or even years, you will be doing workouts you probably never thought possible. Simply working out consistently over time can produce some pretty amazing results.
Obviously, everyone has a different starting point and different goals, but everyone can advance to doing workouts they probably never thought possible for their age. It may take months or even years, but staying consistent can make more of a difference than you think.
If you haven’t been physically active in a while, it’s a great idea to seek clearance from a doctor before starting a new workout routine. Axio Fitness is here to help you stay consistent reach new fitness milestones.
