Happy New Year! One training session down for me, about 274 to go! I recognize that January 1 is a day of reflection for most people, myself included. Today I thought about all the things I accomplished and all the goals I reached in 2015. Opening our new Arlington Heights training facility was definitely one of the highlights of my year! I also reflected on all the things that I “missed the mark” on and want to improve in 2016.
My ultimate goal for 2016 is to become the strongest, leanest, and most conditioned version of myself. I have a specific, daily action plan to accomplish this. Clean eating and purposeful training interspersed with some deserved indulgences is a great plan to achieve optimal health for the long haul. It’s when indulgences and training inconsistency become the norm that we get ourselves in trouble and we feel like crap. Over the Holidays I’m sure those indulgences were all too frequent and some pounds were packed on. A RESET is now in order!!!
When you train around like-minded individuals, great things happen. If you are training with a team, you build a sense of comaraderie and research shows that you are more likely to achieve results.
Let’s get stronger, leaner, and more conditioned together as a team! I want TGA to be a place of acceptance, not intimidation. In order to be an integral part of the team, you must show up, do the work, and be supportive of each other. No excuses! When you are surrounded by like-minded individuals, RESULTS HAPPEN!
Do you have any performance based goals this year? (ie. be able to do three un-assisted pull-ups, increase your deadlift and squat PR by 20 pounds or be able to do a perfect push-up without your belly sagging to the floor) Do you need to lose those Holiday pounds and RESET your metabolism? The Post-Holiday No Sugar Challenge begins Monday, January 11. I hope you are “ALL IN” and ready to get back in the game!
Be reflective this week and take a closer look at your health. Where do you want to take it and what are you willing to do to get there????
Here’s to a strong and healthy 2016,
