Your Excuse is STILL Invalid....
"I'm too Old."
"I'm too busy."
"I'm too fat, skinny, broke, inflexibly, weak, over-committed, under-prepared"...blah, blah, blah.
If you don't know how or where to begin, seek out a professional who can help you. We love that stuff! Call a physical therapist and ask your questions - YES, you probably will be asked to have an actual visit, but that's just us being responsible clinicians before giving blind advice!
Point is...what most people are "too" is "full of excuses." Period.
It's never too late to make change. It's a simple formula of 1 decision plus some effort. It's really that simple.
When did exercise become this nebulous thing that only the young, vain, or athletic did. When did we forget that this is requisite for a full life, one where you can do what you love, take care of your family, and deal with whatever is thrown at you. How about we train for Life. Train to go up and down your stairs. Train to chase your kids or grand-kids around the park. Train to be able to lift that full laundry basket. Train to keep your mind sharp, your body tuned, and your abilities about you.
I don't know what life will throw at me in the hours, days, or years to come. What I do know, is I've made a dedication to get strong. To be strong. To stay strong. I heard it said once by someone in the health & rehabilitation field that all you needed to do was get strong. I space on who it came from (though it sounds like something Pavel might say!), but I first thought "My, that is very over-simplistic and a bit harsh."
Then I opened my eyes and took a look at the reality around me. The patients & staff in clinic. At Walmart. At the grocery store. And it sank in - strength, true strength, is what is lacking in most of our culture. We don't respect it. We certainly don't foster it in our children.
This is the harsh reality, but also the very freeing gift of time & choice -- all you need to do is get strong. Do it smart. Seek help from a professional who gets what that means and can scale it for you. But get Strong. It will be the best investment in yourself you can make.
If you have questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the office at 702-907-5107, and we can start this journey together. As they say, every journey starts with a single step....
