Today is a special day, it’s my dad’s birthday!
My dad is the wisest man I know.
He taught me how to love God, how to take care of my family, have a strong character, and learn how to play baseball.
Today I want to share with you a lesson he taught me that you can apply to your fitness goals.
No matter what your situation, you can have fun doing it.
My dad is a HUGE fan of musicals, plays, and opera. I’d rather stab my ears with a pair of scissors:).
Every year on Christmas eve, we would get together at my grandmothers house with my aunt, uncle, and my cousins.
Since we were little kids, my dad would create a Christmas play that we would perform for my grandmother.
We’d make props for each scene and do a rehearsal together before we would head over to my grandmother’s house.
We would tell the story of Jesus’s birth, perform show tunes with the lyrics changed to funny events we’ve done as a family, and dress up as characters.
Getting to make a wonderful memory as a family and see my grandmother’s reaction was what we most looked forward to!
My dad is all about making people feel included. As our family grew we got new cast members. My wife Bonnie loved getting to be a part of this annual tradition.
We got to enjoy this family tradition for over 20+ years until my grandmother had to move into an assisted living facility.
As much as I can’t stand plays or anything that involves communicating through song (refer to scissors comment), I had so much fun getting to participate in this annual play!
Fitness isn’t naturally fun for most people.
They just want to get it over with and be done.
With my clients, I strive on having a fun environment so they not only reach their goals but have fun doing it.
This past week, my clients Melanie and Josh celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary.
I told them that in honor of their anniversary, they would get to pick each other’s exercises during their training session.
They had a blast challenging each other. Everyone had fun except Josh’s abs:).
You can reach your fitness goals and have fun doing it.
