Norm should have just given up years ago.Ai?? He had every reason (or every excuse depending on how you look at it.)
When Norm walked through my doorAi??he was almost 300lbs and had just quit smoking 3 packs a day. Ai??The dayAi??he signed up I thought “Man, I hope his check clears because he’s never coming back.”
I could not have been more wrong because that was 11 1/2 years ago, now I can’t get rid of him.
He has lost near 100 pounds of fat and gained a ton of muscle.
But let’s look at just some of his (impressive) list of potential excuses:
- He’s old (67) (running joke)
- Torn bicep (lifting his couch with one arm)
- Minuscus tear
- Blood clots
- Calf tear
- He lives 30 minutes away
- Works Downtown
- He’s bald (that count’s right?)
Most people would just say “screw it” and let the ravages of time, inactivity and poor eating habits take their toll.Ai?? End up on countless prescription drugs and resign themselves to a life (if you can call it that) of perpetual poor health.
Well not Norm.Ai?? This guy just does not give up, and never quits.
Yesterday this 67 old with every reason NOT to show up, came in and did pull ups with an *80*lb kettlebell strapped to him.Ai?? (we won’t talk about how many I got).
We all have potential excuses.Ai?? But the bottom line is you can have excuses or you can have results.
If you need help eliminating your excuses give me a call.
