Why: A Conjuction; the cause, reason, or purpose for which (Merriam Webster)
Clients come to me because they have a problem they need help in solving - they often want to get fitter, live a life pain-free, age gracefully and have more energy. However, they are thrown off when I ask them “why”. Each client who I meet has a “why:” they may think the reason that brought them in was to get fitter, but there is a greater purpose behind what led them to me. I ask them to stop and think about their “why,” which will become their mantra during their journey towards a life of strength and vitality. Your “why” provides your with intention, a reminder when you want to give in to your old ways. Your “why” does not have to be a lengthy reason. It can be a matter of a few words of intention, providing you with motivation to challenge you to fight the will to give into your old ways. A fitness program without a specific intention will not permit lasting results. I challenge you today to take time and discover your “why.” Write it down. Put it in a place you can see it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. A prime spot is your bathroom mirror. This will serve as a constant reminder of your decision to lead a life with intention embracing your desire to become fitter, stronger, and healthier.
