To Try or Not to Try

As personal trainers/lifestyle fitness coaches, we're constantly learning. Yes, some of it is staying abreast of the latest "going-ons" in the world of nutrition and exercise, but we're learning that our clients are serving as the greatest continuing education opportunities. One lesson they're teaching us that we want to share with y'all today: those that try vs those that don't, and what it means in their journey.

We can certainly relate: trying something new is SCARY! But when you've committed to a process, you push past the scariness and you come out on the other side better for it! However, some people never push forward, the commitment then waivers, and no progress is made.

The folks that work with us who are "game for anything," they'll try anything we put in front of them, even if they're scared, don't think they'll like it, etc.....those folks are the ones we see the greatest progress in. Yep, some of the things we have them do they don't like, and that's okay, because they tried! It's those that never try because of fear, because of whatever is holding them back, that fall into this place of stagnation where they stop seeing growth, start to get discouraged, and begin to waiver/fall off.

Moral of the story: at least try it once....you might find something you really like! And if you try it and afterwards are like "Nope, I don't like it..." FINE! You tried! Just move on and keep trying :)

In Health,

  1. "Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later."

  2. Yep, I agree. Having been on my journey for over a year now, I can certainly relate.
