Every individual goes through the same basic structured events such as birth, infancy, the toddler years, young adulthood and adulthood. It is what you do during this young adulthood and adulthood that really defines us, especially when it comes to fitness. A person isn’t just fit out of nowhere. Much like that rock, which turns to sand or dirt, there are events and processes that take place to make this happen.
People who are fit do not make it happen over night, in a few weeks or even in a few months. This takes years of hard work, motivation, healthy eating habits, rest and dedication. The pro athlete starts his or her skill as early as in Elementary School athletics. He or she continues to work throughout highschool and college to make this happen. If this athlete starts in the fifth grade, for example, by the time he or she is in the freshman year of college, they will have already been working on this skill for nine years. I’ll say that again, it took them nine years to fine-tune the skill necessary to become a pro athlete and they are not done at that point either.
Over the month of June I will be making a series of posts about you and your beginnings and where you have ended up. After all, these blog posts are for you and I plan on making the best of our largest resource: YOU!
If you have any stories you would like to share about why you started down the road of fitness or about your beginning fitness adventures in general, please share them in the comments section or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
