💪 Let’s get weird 

Happy Wednesday, my fellow golf fitness fanatic.  

Today, we’re going to shift gears a bit. I have one of my favorite assignments for you… 

…It’s to set a goal bucket list! 

Not a life bucket list. But one for the rest of 2022. 

And by doing this, it will help you SKYROCKET off the couch. 

Here’s the deal:   

Your brain is hardwired to like new, fun, and different things. 

When you try something new – or take up a new challenge – it fires up the “feel good” part of your brain. 

I really dislike jogging. But, for the past three years, I’ve signed up for a grueling 8-mile trail run. Sounds crazy, but the challenge and anticipation even during the training gets my endorphins firing like the 4th of July. 

And here’s the magic: Factor “novelty” into your goal equation. 

When you do this, it can keep you moving forward and excited about continuing with your goals and healthy habits. 

Our co-founder Ryan did a 340-mile paddling race over 77 hours. He’ll be the first to tell you that it was kinda miserable, but he will definitely do it again. 

Here are a few ideas of what I’m talking about: 

Try hiking if you’ve never done it before – and if you have, what new trail(s) can you conquer? 

Join a meathead gym that intimidates you and go for a month 

Eat a “Joe Rogan” diet of just fruit and meat for a week or month. 

Learn to swim, golf, ski, bodyboard, or how to play tennis 

Be able to hold a “real” plank for 1 minute 

Be able to do 10 pull-ups 

Challenge yourself to one week without any processed food 

Do your first marathon 

Meditate every day for one month 

Eat one raw food meal every day for a month 

Do the Daily Motion in our app every day for a month 

The list of ideas is endless!  

The whole point is to try NEW, FUN things that support a healthy lifestyle. 

This is just one thing we work on in the 18STRONG Membership – helping you create meaningful goals…and having fun making them a reality!

PS – I mentioned it in the list up top, but doing the 5-7 minute Daily Motion (already built-in to your 18STRONG Membership calendar) every day for a month has been the key to unlocking too many of our golfers’ fitness habits to remember. It just works. 

It’s kinda like starting a good business – low barrier to entry, and crazy-high upside.
