Good morning, and happy hump day, my fellow golf nut.
It’s a beautiful St. Louis morning, but I’m still gonna bring the heat.
So, there’s a guy named Jason who helps us with some of our website and social media stuff. He doesn’t really play golf, and he hates exercising. He’s still a great dude:)
BUT…he wants to get into shape and lose weight. Who doesn’t?
I never really thought he was serious about it, so I didn’t give it much thought. However, somebody lit a fire under his a$$ and, like most, made a New Year’s resolution.
So, I had to figure out how to whip a guy into shape who hates exercise – not exactly what I do in the gym every day.
If I’m being honest, my first instinct was, “He’s just not one of our guys (the Crew). Our guys exercise and love golf. What am I supposed to tell him?”
Then, I took a step back and accepted the challenge. It was kinda like creating a keto diet for a vegetarian.
Here’s what I prescribed for Jason:
Don’t do anything major. Don’t go to the gym. Don’t start running.
Just start moving.
Do the Daily Motion for 7-10 minutes per day. Then, commit to moving for just 40 minutes each day. Just take a walk or do a light workout where you’re not sweating like a pig.
And guess what? He’s been doing it for 9 days and is down 6 lbs.
Full disclosure, he hasn’t had any booze in the last 9 days, so that’s a big part of the fat loss, but he’s DOING IT.
And he’s not doing anything intense. But, he’s healing his body, and starting to move like a 42-yr-old should move.
So, in my most compassionate and kind tone…
GET OFF YOUR A$$!
Stop trying to make everything perfect. Stop looking for the perfect program for you – it ain’t out there.
Instead, just focus on action. Nike has had it right for years – Just Do It!
Simple works. Always has, always will.
