It's Simple... But It's not Easy

As a trainer I get a lot of questions everyday.  I'm happy to answer them.  It tells me that people care about themselves and others.  It is hard to ask questions because you have to admit you don't know something.  Some people feel it shows weakness.  I feel you are weak and will stay weak if you don't ask and don't learn. 

Asking a question is simple but it's not easy.

The ways we can get ourselves stronger are just this way.  Taking care of our nutrition is an important part of being healthy, getting stronger, and performing better on the field yet it is the most neglected part of the fitness equation.  You want to fuel you body with the right fuel for performance.  If you want to lose weight and burn fat you must eat properly.  People tend to complicate things with fancy diets.  The thing of it is you just need to choose the correct foods.  Don't over think it.  Just think.  Should I have the tasty cake or the apple for a quick carb snack? 

It is simple but the choice may not be easy.

The same goes for starting a fitness program.  And I emphasize program and not just joining a gym.  You've seen my rant about joining a gym before.  If you haven't the click here. But you should think about what you have been doing.  Is it getting you closer to your goal?  Are you healthier physically and mentally from your daily activities?  You should evaluate if you need help? 

Again admitting you need help is simple but it is not easy.

It takes courage to look in yourself and see your weaknesses.  It takes courage to ask for help.  It also gets more difficult the longer it goes by. 

It truly is a simple task that will make an enormous difference.  These are the times you should sweat the small stuff. 

Have courage because it is Simple but it is not Easy. 

Get Strong.
Stay Strong.
Finish Strong.
