Will Rogers once said, “Live your life so that whenever you lose, you are ahead.” This quote has different interpretations, but when it comes to health and fitness, it means living a life of consistent healthy choices and habits that leave you feeling ahead, even when you face setbacks.
For many people, embarking on a health and fitness journey can be daunting, and setbacks are almost inevitable. That’s where the wisdom of Will Rogers comes in handy. When you choose to live a healthy life, exercise regularly, eat nutritious foods, get enough rest, and hydrate your body, you are already ahead, even if you don’t always see immediate results.
This quote resonates with Stephanie Jones, a spin instructor at Bulldog Gym. Stephanie has been in the fitness industry for years, and she knows that fitness is a journey, not a destination. “I’ve seen so many people give up on their fitness goals because they get discouraged by setbacks. But what they don’t realize is that every time they show up to exercise or make a healthy food choice, they are ahead,” she says.
Stephanie encourages people to live a healthy lifestyle that they can sustain for the long haul. She advises against the temptation of fad diets or extreme exercise regimens. “It’s about making small, sustainable changes that add up over time. You may not see immediate results, but as long as you are making healthy choices, you are ahead,” she says.
Stephanie invites anyone looking to start or continue their health and fitness journey to join her at her Monday 5:30 PM spin class. “You don’t have to be an athlete or have a certain body type to join us. We welcome everyone, and we celebrate every effort made towards a healthier life,” she says.
In conclusion, Will Rogers’ quote is a reminder that a healthy and fit life is not about perfection but about consistency. Every effort you make towards a healthy lifestyle puts you ahead, even if it doesn’t always feel that way. So, start or continue your health and fitness journey today, and remember that every effort counts towards being ahead.
