-Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night sweating, out of breath, and scared to death because a large group of people were gawking at you while you were in your skivvies? Well, maybe not in real life…but that is a dream that many people experience. If your name were Cesar Ruiz, you would probably strike a pose mid-dream while muttering the phrase, “Beast mode, ENGAGED!” The other week Cesar was working out when he said something to me about pool season coming up. As I looked at him funny he went on to explain that I just don’t understand because I’m engaged. Hmm, interesting point.
Why do you exercise? To feel good, to look good, to lift heavy, to run fast, to pick up ladies at the pool (Cesar), or to simply get away from work? What motivates you to work hard will only facilitate faster results, and the more reasons you have to work hard will only increase your hunger to get in here. Pool season is coming up, in fact Cesar will argue that it is already here due to the fact he has already been. Maybe it’s time to up that membership to 5 times a week? Maybe it’s time to get in here on a Saturday for you 3-times-a-weekers. Maybe it’s time to bring more intensity to each workout. And maybe it’s time to hit those GOATs every week.
Something to think about,
