There I was, laying in bed, wide awake listening to my alarm go off. It was 3:30am and I was about to be late for my 4am client. Yes you read that right, my first client was at 4am, followed by 6am, 7am, and 9:30am. I had just taken a quick hour nap because I was woken up at 2am by my drunken roommates coming home from the bar. A frequent occurrence as I lived in what was predominantly student housing for a local college.
A number of questions raced through my mind: Had I made the right decision to give up Air Force Officer School?—the “safe” choice — to pursue my passion — a career in the fitness business? Would I be stuck making $16,000 a year for the rest of my career?

She was the spouse of an active duty military doctor and Colonel in the Army. She mentioned to me periodically that my services might be great for her husband as now that he was in his mid 50’s he needed to work a little harder to pass his Physical Fitness Tests.
We've all heard the alarming the statistics of the amount of people that try and fail to accomplish their fitness goals each year. Successfully losing weight and keeping it off can be a real challenge for some as it is time consuming, sometimes unsafe to do on your own, and you have to break the unspoken bond you have with certain foods. Truth be told, it's actually not your fault...
You have most likely been doing everything right, you may just need to unfollow a few of these sleazy "fitness models" that give you unrealistic (and most of the time illegal**) diet advice without even getting to know you, just so they can fund their vacation to Bali!
SITTING TOO LONG IS TIGHTENING OUR HIPS!
Have you ever felt like your hips were pulling you down? When we sit we shorten the muscles of our hip flexors.

Make Your Dreams A Reality
Do you close your eyes and picture yourself in a happier place mentally and or physically? If you're reading this I'm assuming you are imagining a better physique or a state of higher self esteem but what I'm about to teach you can be applied to financial, mental, or relationship dreams as well. Here's the truth, if you create a vision by dreaming optimistically, set goals, and plan your actions to map to them...you will accomplish your vision and arrive at a healthier and happier mentality. However, as soon as you give in to a loser mindset you agree to settle for less. All this means is that if you give in to self doubt (which everyone has) you will eventually convince yourself that your goals are too big, too difficult, too far in the future and you will settle for less. Let's talk begin developing a winner's mindset.
