Where is Franklin County? Why Are We in the News?
You knew I was going to write about this at some point....
But you really don't need to if you see the title there.
As a fitness professional in Franklin County....I am left speechless. Concerned. Angered. Frustrated. Determined.....
You name it....I feel it.
As I left the gym this evening, I noticed a few things...
1. I watched dedicated members who have been with me 4+ years CRUSHING the bootcamp workout while pushing themselves.
2. I watched BRAND new members....guess what....DOING THE SAME THING....but at their own pace. They had their own "comfort zone" and it was perfect for THEM.
3. I watched our trainers help each and every person in the room, motivate them, encourage them, and help those who had a tough time with certain moves step down and find a regression that works for them.
4. I got to watch OLD members help NEW members and give them high fives while coming back from hill sprints.
5. Hell, I even jumped in and was the added weight to Ben's prowler push to give him that little extra boost he needed!
This is EXACTLY what I am talking about!
So many of you reading this may think of OAF as a place that is too far out of your league. Maybe too hard. Too expensive. Too pushy. Too "accountable...." because, lets face it....some of you WANT to be able to check out when you are not seeing progress quick enough....am I right?
You want the QUICK fix, and you want it all! But what you don't want is being held accountable for your choices and lack thereof...
You want the Bentley but you don't what to work the 30 years of 60 hour weeks to get it.
When you think of OAF you know we have accountability systems to make sure you are coming and training....and to many of you...it SCARES you because you want to have that escape when things slip.
Well news flash....this is EXACTLY why the numbers on the scale never move and why you may be apart of this growing statistic in Franklin County.
Since 2014, I've tried as hard as I possibly can to change lives. To SHOW people that you CAN lose weight. You CAN break barriers. YOU CAN get past the mind games telling you that "enough is enough."
I've lived, breathed, and preached it for over a decade in the industry!
Which is why when I see articles being posted like this, it makes me hurt so deep inside because I know SO MANY of you have the potential to make changes, but you refuse to allow yourself. You come up with ANY excuse possible to say that you can't or don't have time for exercise....when, in reality, you DO have time. The average American spends 2 hours and 22 minutes a day on social media. So to say you don't have time is like saying you dieting but eating over your calorie threshold everyday.
I am not going to sugarcoat things....getting results is hard hard. Many people I've trained over the years who lost 50+ pounds shed tears and battled demons daily. It's no easy task. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is hard, but what other choice do you have?
If someone told you there would be an "easy button" for health, don't you think everyone would take it?
The fact of the matter is that there ISN'T...and it relies on YOU to make a change. YOU and YOU only.
What WE do in Over-Achieve is HELP you change and make it a lifestyle that is sustainable through our family, support, and coaching.
To tell yourself you will get up at 5am everyday and start training in your garage before work is VERY tough to do, and we have made it easier to come in with a family who loves and supports you every step of the way!
There is time for change.
There is a PLACE for you to go to change.
What are your other options? Keep gaining weight, going on medication you can't afford, and living a life in the shadows of your kids and grandkids you no longer can keep up with?
What about your spouse? Would you make a change for them?
All these things you need to ask yourself....just as Tony Robbins says:
"Who are you?
What are you made of?
What are you after?
What's preventing you from getting it?
What are your wounds?
What are you most proud of?"
...and then live 2019 by these words from Jim Rohn: "Work harder on yourself than anybody else. Constantly find a way to add more value."
If you are delaying in the opportunity to change...they you are doing yourself a dis-service! The time to start is NOW. We will help! All it takes is for you to click here and sign up to come talk. Heck, we will even talk over the phone if you prefer!
Let's make a change!
Let's help Franklin County GET FIT.
Together we can do this!
