With just 2 of us now, we were much more focused and I got some really good coaching on the basics. After a month of 1-1 time, in some really fun cycle classes, we started increasing the intensity of the workouts and mixing. Somewhere in the next month, I witnessed a change. Not only in my appearance, but all of my outlook and attitude have been carried out. And I was hooked at that point. I worked out five times a week consistently at the gym, incorporating cardio, running, and weights. I looked and felt good thinking that my way of living would always be this.You may find more information at Rock Fitness.
And until about 5 years ago, that was it. My mother was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2007, and my life was turned upside down. I lost interest in many of my normal activities, including fitness, very quickly. I really let myself go over the next 2 years and didn’t really care about getting back into the swing of things. This will be done to an individual by a major life-changing event, and I was no exception. My wife became very worried about my decline in fitness and started to encourage me to get back into it. I tried but absolutely could not get motivated. I was able to pull back the self-discipline that I once had after much research and a hard look in the mirror. It wasn’t easy, and a lot of planning and hard work was necessary.
So, today, I would like to share what helped me conquer the demons of my fitness. Hope they are helping you.The reason I’m giving so much background to my personal fitness experience is to demonstrate that each of us is going to struggle to choose fit in different ways. Actually, lifetime fitness is not a “one size fits all” approach. We all have different circumstances that encourage our desire to get in shape, keeping us motivated and preserving the lifestyle for the long term.
