What does a car have to do with fitness?
Well, what if I said, when you turned driving age you received one car … for your entire life.
Ask yourself, if that happened, how would you treat that car?
My guess is that you would treat that car the very best you could. You would make sure it was always filled with gas so it could run and take you everywhere. You would change the oil often, using the best grade possible, to make sure the engine ran as clean as possible.
It would be a top priority for you to make sure it lasted as long as possible.
This car represents your body. Do you treat it the same as you would the car?
We often take our body for granted and we assume it will keep us healthy for our entire life. Don’t neglect the most precious gift you have. Keep it running as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.
Fuel it with good nutrition. Strengthen it with weight training. Tune it up mentally with great friends and rest it regularly so it has the energy to get you where you need to go.
Most of all, don’t take it for granted.
