FITNESS MOTIVATION: Just Keep Showing Up

After reflecting on people’s excuses and their misconceptions, I came up with this:

EXCUSES are words we use to fill the gap between wanting something and achieving something. 
EXCEPTIONS are the excuses we make to explain why other people succeed.
EXCELLENCE is what is achieved, no matter the result – just because you tried. 

If you think succeeding is just losing weight, winning a medal, being the fastest, becoming the strongest, looking the best or anything else even similar – you’re wrong. Succeeding is just showing up. Showing up, even if you fail. Showing up, even if you don’t feel like it. Showing up, even if you don’t know it will pay off. Showing up, without excuse.

Anyone can “show up” when they are strong, fit and successful – but showing up when you are weak, out of shape and doubtful is what will make you truly victorious.

Showing up grows you. Showing up molds you. Showing up IS success. Quit making excuses. Quit thinking that fitness is about the end result: Success or Failure. It’s not. It’s about the journey.

MOTIVATION & INSPIRATION: Super short injection of “Just Do It”

EXCUSES are words we use to fill the gap between wanting something and achieving something. 

EXCEPTIONS are the excuses we make to explain why other people succeed.

EXCELLENCE is what is achieved, no matter the result – just because you tried.

I just made this for anyone who wants to use it. this is Steve, leading boot camp…giving it all his heart.

I’m going to keep up at Max Fitness Club.
I’m going to keep showing up running the streets of Vero Beach.
I’m going to keep showing up doing BCx Boot Camp at FitStudio
Where are YOU going to keep showing up?
