How Important Is It Too You?

TrainersMy trainers and I attended a 3 day fitness conference in Chicago awhile back. We acquired a bunch of new ideas to challenge you into getting into even better shape.

One of the speakers had a saying that he kept repeating…

“How Important is it to You?”

What a great question.

One of my fitness friends in Canada posted on his FB about being so frustrated when a client said they wanted to cancel because they couldn’t afford the bootcamp. My friend had to get access to his credit card bill for some reason and found that this person spent $250 on McDonald’s alone in one month! This trainer became so upset over this.

Obviously for that person, being sick and unhealthy was more important then being fit and healthy.

I challenge you to ask that question for any area of your life…

“How Important is it to You?”

If it is important enough for you, you will do it, bottom line. If a kidnapper stole your kids and said you have 10 weeks to lose 30 lbs (assuming you had 30 lbs to lose) or you will never see your kids again, what do you think would happen? You would lose 30 lbs!

As a fitness professional I must understand and accept that for many people being fit, having energy, and making time for themselve isn’t VERY important. This is one of the hardest things for me to deal with. I know I can deliver tools to a person to radically change their life for the better, but for some they just aren’t ready.

Our goal with the new Transformation Center, that is opening, and the local support groups forming around the FM4L Six Week Challenge, is to be there when a person decides that beginning a life of WELLNESS instead of SICKNESS is VERY important to them.

I hope this message has challenged you as much as it has challenged me. There are areas of my life that I would “like” to be different or better, but if I am to be honest with myself they haven’t been VERY important to me quite yet.
