We have all heard the expression “it takes a village” but chances are you have never applied that principle to your personal health and fitness. You see, when most people set off to improve their health and fitness that try to do it alone. You might read a few articles from the magazine you picked up at the checkout line of your grocery store or ask a few friends who seem to be in better shape than you. But other than that you take the on the task of getting in shape without much guidance or support.
When we step back and think about it, it sounds more like a recipe for failure than a recipe for success.
Imagine of we expected students to learn this way. If we just told them pick up a book and figure it out. Sure, some students could do this and they would be successful. But the majority of students would be lost and would give up quickly.
This is exactly why I’ve created the Fit Teacher Network. A decade ago when I desperately wanted to regain my personal health and fitness I wish there was a community I could have turned to for guidance. A place where I could post my questions. And a group of individuals I could relate to who understood what I was going through.
Frequently I will be referring to the three pillars (fitness, nutrition, support) through my blog because you can’t just have one or two of them and achieve success. You can’t just outwork a bad diet. And you can’t expect yourself to keep going when there appears to be no light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve hit more than my share of rough patches along the way and made plenty of mistakes to learn from. And now I’m getting to share my wisdom with you.
If you haven’t done so already, please sign up for my newsletter. Each month I will be giving insights as to how to continue to make progress on your health and fitness journey without feeling as though you are having to sacrifice the other aspects of your life. I will also be sharing the latest notes from my blog along with videos on workouts and nutrition.
To your health,
