Will spending the time and effort to get back into decent shape be worth it?
It’s a good question because you will need to endure some pain to get where you want to go.
You can read some testimonials below - it was clearly worth it for these guys.
But will it be worth it for you? That’s your question.
Think about your average day right now. What’s it like?
Do you wake up groggy, tired and un-rested? Is it hard to get out of bed? I mean physically hard to move your body to get out of bed.
Do you have a chronic sore back and joint aches and pains?
Would it be nice to wake up quickly feeling rested and refreshed? You easily roll out of bed with a feeling of optimism for the day.
Wouldn’t it be nice to get dressed quickly and effortlessly instead of holding your breath to tie your shoes?
Can you imagine constant energy throughout the day with no low blood sugar sags?
Compare that to being tired and lethargic all day long, needing frequent pick me ups like coffee, candy or pop to keep you going.
What is that worth to you?
What are you willing to do for that?
Is that possible? It’s not really a lot but it will compound on itself and make a difference over time.
What if I told you you don’t have to starve yourself to lose body fat? What if you knew you could eat until you're satisfied and gradually burn off your excess belly fat?
Yeah you have to eat some different foods and give up some of the crap you’re consuming but it’s not that hard to eat healthy.
And the result is steady energy with no hunger pangs throughout the day and you feel in control and like you’re accomplishing something worthwhile.
This makes your training all the easier. You want to do it. You look forward to it.
You’re confident now and that makes all the difference. You believe you can do it, so you keep going, making progress, getting fitter.
Once you reach this point, you’re over the hump. You’re not going back.
Would this be worth it?
Do you want to be the grumpy guy, the couch potato who never does anything fun because you’re too damn tired?
Would you rather be the fit, health conscious guy - the fun dad, the guy who knocks off his bucket list and then plans new adventures?
Which guy do you want to be?
Cause you can be either one.
You just have to decide if the time and effort to make the change is worth it.
It’s up to you.
