“There is only one sort of discipline, perfect discipline.” You might ask how did I lose 60 pounds. My answer is Discipline.  If you know what works and stick to a plan EVERY DAY you will achieve success.  Your workout routine should be prioritized right under work and placed in your schedule.  If your excuse is not good enough for you to miss work then is shouldn’t be good enough to missed your scheduled workout.  

“The test of success is not what you do when you are on top.  Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.” This is the law of Failure.  Everyone fails, that’s what makes us human.  So you ate too much or missed your workout.  Get back on track.  If you were driving to the beach and you got lost you wouldn’t turn around and go home right?  You’d find the correct road and get back on it!

“If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn’t thinking” You If you behave like 80% of Americans that do not workout then you will  most likely be overweight and develop numerous health problems.  BE DIFFERENT.  Be yourself, think for yourself, do not let the opinions or attitudes of others affect yours.  It is your life that’s in your hands.  It’s up to you to change what you can.  Your current health status is comprised of your decisions compounded over time.  If you don’t like where you are then perhaps you should stop thinking like everyone else!  We trainers can help you make that behavioral change.  That’s our job!
