The main reason why you should be living a healthy lifestyle is to improve your quality of life.
There is no better feeling in the world than being physically and mentally fit. You will look and feel as close to superhuman as you are going to get without being in the Marvel Universe.
You should be living the fit life for YOU.
In today’s society, there is always a Ned Naysayer lurking in the shadows. When you begin to better yourself they will appear like a vulture.
Some human beings have the tendency to act like crabs when they see another person making positive changes. Most people will try to pull that person back into their own dark barrel of ineptitude.
There is always someone who will tell you that you are doing it wrong.
There is always someone who will tell you that you are making no progress.
There is always someone telling you that you made the wrong choice.
Reactions like this are that persons’ insecurities about their own life coming to the surface.
If you let Ned Naysayer’s rule your life then will be going nowhere fast. You should be living the fit life for you.
Not for your completely out-of-shape co-worker who judges you but cannot even walk up a flight of steps without huffing and puffing.
They can judge you but they can barely walk up a few steps? Next!
Not for your friends who tell you that “you look like a man.”
Ladies, your friends are jealous because you are looking leaner and curvier every day. You put on that dress when you all went out last Friday night and they could not believe how good you looked.
Your calves were popping. Your arms showed definition. And that butt was sitting high and tight like a Marine’s haircut!
I once trained a young woman who fell prey to this. She was looking like a brick stallion until her so-called friends convinced her that she looked like The Rock. Who knows what her potential could have been!
Not for your family member who says exercise is a waste of time as he/she take more high-blood pressure medicine.
I know you love your family and I do too but sometimes the resistance will come from home. You cannot let it deter you.
Not for the guys at they gym who laugh at you because you are 19 years old and are the real life version of a scarecrow.
I’ve been this super skinny guy. Remember you are not training to impress them. You are training to improve yourself and unleash your inner greatness.
While you will have 11 years of hard training and a top-notch physique to match, the majority of clowns who mocked you will be in absolutely horrendous shape by the time you all are 30 years old. Trust me on this one.
Not for your spouse who says “You do not need to change.”
Not changing means staying the same. If you have serious health issues or body image issues that impact you, do you really want to stay the same?
Do you really want to stay depressed? You won’t be around for your spouse if your diabetes gets any worse.
You must live this fit life for YOU.
In my entire life, my main training goal was never to impress women like most guys do. I have never trained to post ab selfies online. My training goals have always been centered around improving my performance and my quality of life.
A better performance will always lead to a better physique.
Building strength, athleticism, and a superhero physique is a side effect of lifting weights, sprinting, and eating correctly.
I have no complaints about looking better but I never walked into the gym thinking “If only I get big biceps I can then impress Susan Shallow!”
When I was in college I was told by someone “You only train because you run track. When you graduate you will be finished like the rest of us!” That is completely a false statement!
Even if I would not have ran track, I would have been training. There has not been organized sprinting for me since 2005 but I have not missed one scheduled training session. I train because I love this thing called fitness!
I have a dual purpose for living a healthy lifestyle.
I do not live the fit life for just me. My purpose on this planet is to live this fit life for you too. I have to let you see how much better you will feel and how much better life is when you are strong and healthy.
Training hard, eating correctly, and doing both consistently are the basic rules of the game. Follow these rules and you will have success. You will build yourself a strong, respectable physique and you will have optimal health. What is better than that?
Do it for YOU!
I’ll holla at you next time.
