Now there’s a title. I’m like the Home Depot of Fitness. No, I’m not a giant warehouse of all things home improvement, from pipes to lumber to garden supplies. No, I am not walking around in an orange apron with my name written on it in Sharpie (although I totally would).
Anyone know the Home Depot slogan?
You can do it. We can help.
I was listening to a podcast the other day where they referenced this and I realized how perfect it was for fitness and what I do.
It’s not the program that gets you to your goal. It’s not the nutrition plan, it’s not the superfood shake, it’s not the coach. It’s YOU. All those things are TOOLS in your toolkit, but you are the one doing the work, making the choices every single day. Those things will ABSOLUTELY help you, because you will be focusing on good nutrition and exercise. If you don’t ever pick up the proverbial hammer, the job won’t get done.
When I say I’m the Home Depot of fitness, I’m not just the place where you can come to get those tools, I am actually one of the tools that will help you reach your goals. And yes, I just called myself a tool. Move on.
YOU are the one that is going to make this happen. If I’m your coach, I will be there to support you, motivate you, inspire you, and kick your butt into gear if you need it. But you are the one in charge of the work, or, to continue this awesome analogy, the “renovation.” You have the final plans of what you want to feel like, you know which walls you need to knock down and which ones need to be built up with more reinforcement. I can help you figure out what changes you need to make and how to make them, but only you can actually DO IT.
And you know what? You CAN do it. I know you can. And I will show you how, and make sure I’m there with you every step of the way.
I can’t resist one more: I can’t swing the hammer for you, but I can help you pick which one you use and show you how to hold it. Okay, I think I’m done. When I find a good analogy I can’t seem to let it go.
You can do it. I can help.
Yes, this post has been light and fun, but seriously. If you need help figuring what to do and how to get to your goals, send me a message one Facebook.
