What is the most valuable thing in the world?
Is it money?
Is it love?
Is it friendship?
Is it stability?
All of the things mentioned above can be regained after they are lost.
You can regain lost money.
You can love again after you have been heartbroken.
You can become friends with someone again.
You can also regain stability after an unstable time in your life.
What is the one thing you cannot regain no matter what you do?
From the day you are born the clock begins to tick. And the clock will never stop or reverse.
Once time is gone, it is gone.
One thing that is certain in life is that we all will eventually expire in the physical form. This is inevitable.
One thing that you can do in this life is to use your time WISELY.
Let’s face it we all have wasted time. We still do.
We have wasted time on social media doing nothing.
How many people do you know surf social media for hours doing nothing productive? (It may be you!) Scrolling the feed for hours liking pictures gets you no closer to your goal.
Social media when I was younger was video games. I spent hour upon hour playing these games instead of working on my athletic ability.
Those same hours spent on training for track and field at the collegiate level instead of playing Madden football could have gotten me into a Division 1 school vs being a 1-star walk-on at Division 2.
How many hours per week are given to bad “reality TV?” Watching the scripted adventures of catty women argue over nothing gets your no closer to becoming successful.
We have wasted time on people who do not appreciate what you are doing for them.
We have wasted time at a dead-end job that does not bring you any joy.
Wasted time is the worst, which is why we must aim to minimize it.
When it comes to training the most popular excuse is “I don’t have time.”
That excuse is the biggest load of horse manure ever created!
To get into general shape (not athlete or bodybuilder shape) you need to train 2 days per week at 25-40 minutes for each session. Brief, intense (relative) work gets the job done.
There are 168 hours in a week. I broke down the hours in this article here. Please check it out to see how much time is left over after work/school/kids/etc.
Obviously, if you are competing for sport or have bigger goals it will take more. But for basic, general shape 2 days at 30 minutes per clip is it.
The real reason for not training is not time. The real reason is that folks just do not want to do it.
You have to get out of that losing mindset. You must adopt the winning mindset in order to make progress not only in fitness but also in your life.
We all lead busy lives and we all have the same 24 hours per day to get things done.
Giving 30 minutes for 2-3 days per week to train and increase the quality of your life is not asking much. It should be a no-brainer.
I’ll holla at you next time,
The People’s Trainer
