Fitness: The 1 Time It Should Be All About You

be a better you

It’s easy to compare yourself with other people. Whether you look down at yourself because you can’t do what someone else does better, OR you look down on someone else for what you do better. Both of those are very very wrong.

In the world of Fitness, we are ALL on the same team. We are all working toward a common goal to get and stay fit. If we do it right, we’ll bring people with us and attract others to a healthier lifestyle. If we do it wrong, we will do the exact opposite and scare people away from whatever you are doing. We are a fitness witness – for good or bad. That’s your choice.

So next time you get tempted to look on someone else’s paper, remember, you aren’t competing with someone else. You are competing against yourself. You are working for YOUR best PR. There will always be someone stronger, faster and more powerful than you. But, last I checked, most of us aren’t athletes trying to land on a professional team to make millions. We are trying to raise families, work hard and live healthy. You are working on the best you possible – and the old unhealthier you is the only person you need to beat. 🙂

  1. Earlier this year, I was about to run a 5K for the first time in my life. I had lost about 20 pounds in the previous two months by jogging regularly and making simple, healthier food choices (the biggest was that I stopped going for seconds). I was with my five year old daughter, and we had told her that Daddy was running in a race. She asked me if I was going to win. I told her that there were 10,000 people in the race, and I wasn’t going to finish first, but that the only person I wanted to beat was my old, unhealthy self.

    When the race was over, I had beat my goal time. I was exhausted. She was so proud of me, and she asked, “So did, new healthy, strong Daddy beat old, unhealthy, fat Daddy?” I just laughed (and cried a little) and said, “Yes baby. Yes he did.” I blogged about the race here

  2. Great Blog thanks Robb. Def brought a tear to my eye.

  3. I do agree with all the ideas you have presented on your post.

    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the
    posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit
    from next time? Thanks for the post.

  4. Hello, the whole thing is going nicely here and ofcourse every one is sharing information, that’s truly
    good, keep up writing.
