Ever have someone who has inspired you and impacted you so much without them really even being aware?!
This guy did for me. I’ve had the privilege to workout LIVE with him a number of times and LOVED it every time!! He is such an inspiring and motivational person. He has a way with words to NOT ONLY make you push harder to workout BUT to make you think and feel blessed!
10+ years ago I was told I had spondylolisthesis. A stress fracture in my back that caused me pain and discomfort. I was getting steroid injections into my spine around the age of 19. After time passed I was then told one of my vertebra had basically disintegrated and if the injections didn’t help a spinal fusion was next. WHAT?! At this point I was only 25 years old.
I would say that I was a fairly active -in high school I ran cross country and track, I was a cheerleader, danced, took some gymnastics classes, and did competitive cheerleading while I lived in Mexico for a year.
I decided that since I was now really limited on my activity (dance and gymnastics I had to be careful with) I would get more active in other ways. I started going to a gym and taking fitness classes. I than fell in LOVE with Insanity. I incorporated Shaun T’s Insanity workouts into my routine and his CONSTANT reminder of hold your core continuously played in my head…I would watch myself and make sure I held my core…AND –>not making this up!!<– I credit that to strengthening my core enough and constantly being aware of it TO THE FACT that I no longer needed to get injections OR the need for surgery!!
I could have used my back as an excuse BUT NO instead it became my reason!!
Dig deep (as Shaun T would say) and BELIEVE–what ever your excuses are –> MOST LIKELY can be your REASON!!
