What’s the Hardest thing about Getting Fit? Keep reading…
I remember as a kid when I dreaded doing something like chores or homework, or starting something new or something that felt big or hard, my mom would look at me with enthusiasm and say “Ain’t no hill for a stepper”. I’m pretty sure i’ve heard that a hundred times, I think i still roll my eyes and I’m 36. But it turns out like most moms, she was always right.
I’m sure you can remember your parents having some saying like that as a kid or maybe now you have one of your own that you say.
I know for some starting a new fitness routine or re-starting an old one can seem insurmountable at first. It may come with feelings of anxiety, it might come with insecurities or fears of what ifs. What if i’m terrible at it? What if I embarrass myself? What if___fill in the blank.
You might struggle with comparisons of the “glory” days when you were fit or comparison of others in the gym.
Maybe you used to workout but lost your way. Maybe you fell off track because you lost motivation or you got bored. You had a couple of kids and life just got full and you just didn’t know where to start?
Have you ever felt like you don’t know where to start? Or How to start?

You’re not alone. Trust me.
What I know after many years (like 15) in the fitness industry the hardest part about getting fit is taking the first step and then keep steppin. One foot after the next.
It’s like another saying that’s kind of weird, How do you eat an elephant? Yep, one bite at a time.
Or maybe the mountain metaphor strikes you-Starting a fitness routine is just like when you go to climb a literal mountain, you just find the path and keep walking, sometimes you’ll get off the path and you get to choose to get back on, sometimes each day or Monday can feel like the first step, the first day. That’s ok, the important thing is to just keep stepping.
