Wow. Our first workout revealed a lot. The most obvious realization? I have a long way to go. Dr. FiT focused a lot on core and I did my best to keep up. Of course, I think my “best” at this point could easily by out-bested by any one of the surviving cast members of “The Golden Girls.” By the end of today’s workout, I was focusing most of my energy on not losing this morning’s breakfast. And do you know what? I can’t wait for the next one.
I credit this newfound excitement to our trainer, Dr. FiT. From the minute I walked through those doors, I was hit with an energy that became contagious. Patrick was so amped for our workout, it was impossible not to feel the same way. Through each and every new exercise, he would shout encouragement. He looked for the 10% I got right and celebrated that. And when guidance was needed, he delivered it in a such a positive way that I felt compelled to give the very best that I had.
With Patrick leading the way, I gained a perspective today that I will fight to keep. Today was the first step in a long journey, no doubt. But instead of stressing over the distance that I’ll need to cover, I find myself feeling excited that I took the first step.
