MMB – 2018 is a Wrap!

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it’s New Year’s Eve?  Where has the year gone?  As I’ve taken a break this past week from training and classes, I’ve had a wonderful time with my family and friends and I hope you’ve done this same!  Now that I’m sitting down to write the last blog of 2018, I can’t help but to reflect back on this past year with fondness and inspiration as I envision so many of your faces!  For those of you who are regulars, do you realize we have gathered together to do more than 100 hours of fitness together!?  Wow – that’s a lot of time we have spent together sweating, grunting, laboring, and yes, getting more fit, capable, and healthy! 

I’ve seen many of you start off as beginners and have watched you take your fitness to the next level and become a force to be reckoned with!  Do you know what all of these clients have in common?  They all have: determination, work ethic, and consistency.  Every single person who I can think of who has flourished this year has focused on those three words.  This is not an easy road folks.  But, doing the right thing never is.  If you were to ask any of them if all of the pain and work was worth it, I guarantee you they would say absolutely!  Why?  Because they feel so much better and are more confident, capable, and committed to living a vibrant and healthy life! 

As we begin a new year and chance to start over, let’s focus on how we want to look, feel, and behave and what are we sick and tired of being sick and tired about?  Let’s get laser focused and come together to conquer our fears and break down walls of doubt, negative self talk, and feelings of inadequacy and inabilities.  When these seeds are sown into our minds and souls, the fruit that comes from them is toxic and poisonous.  When we sow seeds of hope, faith, belief, perseverance, and positive thoughts, good fruit is harvested and the outcome is always a spiral upwards instead of down. 

Let’s be the people that go out into the world and uplift and encourage others by the words we speak and the kindness we share.  While there are many things in this world that we can’t control, we can certainly control our attitude and reactions to events around us.  How we react, behave, and speak sends a message about who we are and what we stand for.  When we are more fit, we have a greater capacity to serve, love, and focus on others because we have the energy and stamina to do so. 

As a Christian, I draw my strength from the Lord because it is He who equips and strengthens me daily.  It is this strength that I draw from when I’m training you that allows me to serve your needs and take care of you. 

So, in wrapping up 2018, let’s celebrate all that we have achieved together and realize that the best is yet to come!  Let’s make 2019 an awesome year of dedication to health and wellness as we strive to reach new goals that will catapult is into greater living, love, and a joy filled and abundant life!
