Another day. Another soccer practice cancelled due to excessive heat here in St. Louis – don’t get me started.
Instead, let’s stay positive and focus on our Co-Founder Ryan’s fitness journey.
Quick back story: until he got into his late 30s, he struggled to maintain his weight and fitness. These days, he seems to sustain his fitness almost effortless – clearly he’s putting in the work.
So I asked him, “If you had to start today, what would you do?”
Curiously, he started with what he would NOT do…
The biggest mistake I kept making over and over was trying to do too much too quickly because I wanted to get to my goal as fast as humanly possible. When I finally started treating fat loss and fitness like a marathon instead of a sprint – that’s when it all changed.
And that is the biggest problem I see with our Crew. And it’s such a small thing. And it boils down to one small tweak.
It’s hard. I get it. We are beaten over the head with before & after pics, “miracle” strategies, and a ton of BS about how we’re going to get shredded in 30 days.
We all want that.
But there’s a voice in the back of your head that knows better. He keeps telling you that it’s too good to be true…and he’s right.
Instead of falling for the radical, overnight, drastic, life-altering changes, I’m going to challenge you to do just 20 minutes per day of strength training, 3 days per week.
And it doesn’t have to be super intense. Just start by challenging yourself a little more each time.
If you don’t have a program to follow, you can check out the 18STRONG Membership. Pick the workouts you enjoy, then limit them to 20 mins.
We’ve all got 20 minutes for our fitness.
Your #1 Fan,
PS – Whatever gets you to your goal is what’s going to keep you there.
If you starve yourself to lose 15lbs, then you’re going to have to keep starving yourself.
If you make small, gradual changes that build habits, then all you have to do is that.
Sounds so much easier…and it is!
If you haven’t done so already, join the Crew in the 18STRONG Membership where you’ll have access to all of our training programs, mobility training, distance training, warm-ups, etc.
