So often we work out or we train because we dislike something about ourselves. How many of us have turned around and looked at our backsides in the mirror and groaned, “Ugh! I have GOT to get my ass to the gym. It’s so flabby and gross!”
Or we pull up our shirts and pinch our belly fat and think, “Eww. This is disgusting. I’m going to work out every day this week and make this go away.”
We are in the gym training because we HATE something about ourselves.
Why don’t you train because you LOVE yourself?
Why don’t you train because it’s a way to nurture and honor your body (the only one you have, remember?)
Why don’t you train because you are able and capable?
Why don’t you train because you want to stay healthy and feel good for as long as possible?
Why don’t you train so that you can be around for a long time for your kids, your grandkids, and your spouse?"
