I saw a great post on Facebook today about health in general so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on the matter. I have talked with many people about fitness and a couple of common conversations seem to keep coming back. One common theme is how much does it cost? When I tell them they say “wow, that is really expensive”. I get that 150/mo is expensive but compared to what? We all spend 100/mo on a phone, well at least a smartphone. How many nights out on the weekend do you go out? I bet many of you spend anywhere between 100-200 bucks per weekend on food and drinks or entertainment ,which is fine, I’m guilty of that once in a while too. But to hide behind it’s too expensive is total BS. Look at what you get for that 150. You get personalized coaching, someone who cares about your fitness, a state of the art facility and a great community of supporters who have committed 3-5 hours a week for their fitness not to mention nutrition coaching. Where else will you find that kind of value and care for 3-5 hours a week? Not anywhere especially when it comes to getting fit. If health is important to you everyone will find a way to pay for it. I truly believe that so stop using it as an excuse.
The second topic that seems to keep people away is the notion of the times don’t work. Again, really? I have told anyone who walks through the door I’m willing to accommodate anytime, even if it’s one person for a while. You are in here for 1 hour a day, and I bet you can find 1 hour a day or every other day to take care of your health. Spend the time now learning healthy living techniques and in the end you will save a ton of money later on healthcare. Look at it like taking your vitamins or dare a say your medication that you probably can get off if you took better care of yourself. Just food for thought.
