The other day I had a free consultation with a gentleman interested in getting started back on the path to health, wellness and strength.
Early on in our conversation I asked him about his goals, to learn what was driving him to come in, create a change.
When I asked him, why those particular goals of his were important to him, his response was a statement that stuck with me in it’s jarring yet obvious elegance:
“Because fitness is freedom,” he said.
This coming week I recorded some habit tips/focuses for our members that are training remotely (if you’d like to see them the links are below!)
And within one of the videos I dropped the line of, “fitness is freedom.”
And it really resonated with Dawner.
She was up early and watched the videos and wrote to me and her response to me was so great I wanted to share it here with you guys….
Wow! I’m up extra early this morning to give my body time to wake up before my 7:30 tennis date and I just watched all the videos you sent for this week, Shawn.
What great inspiration to get started on the right track for the week! You certainly hit on some great topics as usual.
I love “Fitness is Freedom”!
Sure, I want to look better and feel better, but the thing that has compelled me to stay consistent for these past three years (my CrossFit anniversary is July 11. Wow!) and what made me walk through the doors at RRCF is… I want to age as gracefully as possible. I want to stay as mobile as possible as I age. I dread having serious limitations that prevent me from caring for myself as I get older.
In the aging process Fitness is Freedom for sure!!
I may not lift the heaviest weights, get the most rounds in an AMRAP, finish in the best time but I do my very best, I am consistent and really do enjoy my workouts. I’m winning!!
Thank you for all your motivation and inspiration, Shawn.️
