On the way home from hanging with the family, I was listening to the radio which is hard to do around there because it’s in the mountains. As I was desperately searching for some musical entertainment, this song chimes blasting through my radio. The chorus went something like this: Smile and the whole world smiles with you. Frown and you’ll be the only one around.
I thought to myself, that’s so true. However, the validity of that statement is not exactly what I call completely accurate.
You see doodle bug, there is another saying that my mom used to always tell me when I was being made fun of because of my weight. She used to always say that misery loves company and of course, no one is smiling when they’re in misery.
So who’s right? Well, broham…
When you are happy the whole world smiles with you, and when you are miserable, no one wants to be around you, but frankly, you are probably going to want at least one person around to talk with about your story. (It just gets harder to find someone to listen)
Kind of the same with fitness. So much of the country is fat, because it is so easy to simply not work out and it just puts a smile on your face when you’re eating a piece of cake doesn’t it?
It’s hard to get motivated to exercise when all you see are pictures of trainers passed out next to weights or talking about how sore they are from their last workout.
That shit’s for suckers and anyone who subscribes to that nonsense should be promptly beaten and forced to bear crawl out of town with 100lbs kettlebells.
At the General Fitness Company we may joke about how sore our legs are after workouts, but by golly, that sure is not one of our selling points. So what is? One word.
I’m telling you, that stuff works like magic! I don’t know how many times I heard this in training: “If I didn’t make an appointment with you, I wouldn’t have come to the gym today,” or “I wasn’t going to come today, but I knew so and so would be there so I didn’t want to let them down.”
You want results? Bro…
It’s super easy, just make yourself accountable.
