FAT TUESDAY: The Strong Silent Type

864It’s a room of warriors.  Strong.  Vigilant.  And silent.

From the weights to the bands to the treadmill…they all stare silently, dreaming of activity.  Getting used to disappointment.

Billy Blanks, Tony Horton, Denise Austin, Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels….all muzzled.

The best investment we make in exercise is NOT financial.  It’s also not the biggest sacrifice.

A commitment to sweat – to work hard – to get up early – to skip a favorite TV show – to decline dessert and run instead….those are the investments and sacrifices we make for a good work out.

And they scream GOOD JOB more than any piece of equipment sitting unused in the corner of your bedroom.
