When you first venture into the gym to start getting back in shape, it’s common to be somewhat intimidated by the beautiful bodies of the bodybuilders and fitness models that are already in fantastic shape. But now there is a way to outshine those bodybuilders and fitness models, starting right from where you’re at right now.
For most people hitting the gym for the first time, or for the first time in years, it can be fascinating but ultimately demotivating watching sweat drip off his massive pecs as he bench presses or the curvature of her perfectly-shaped glutes as she does squats – you find yourself thinking ‘I’ll NEVER get there!’. It’s tough, as you watch those incredible bodies flex through their advanced workouts, to remember that THEY had to start somewhere too, and may well have come from a fitness level much worse than yours is today.
But rather than becoming demotivated, there’s a way you can easily outshine those gorgeous bodies, starting today and in your current shape. Both locally in most areas and online, 30-Day, 60-Day and 90-Day fitness challenges are springing up explosively. And YOU – just getting started on that long road back to fitness – are in the best position to win one or more of these challenges!
If you’re not familiar with these events it may be hard to grasp how you could possibly outshine bodybuilders and fitness models in any sort of fitness challenge, but stop and think for a moment… How hard would it be for a bodybuilder who has already been training for years to suddenly add another 10 pounds of muscle (without using drugs, of course!). And that svelte and sexy fitness model – what are the chances she could lose 10 pounds of bodyfat in the next 4 – 12 weeks? Does she even HAVE ten pounds of bodyfat left to lose and still be healthy?
Fitness challenges are almost always based on who improves the most in the 30 – 90 days, not on what shape you started or finished in vis-a-vis anyone else. As hard as it is, it’s still easier for you to lose 15 pounds in 30 days or add 10 pounds of lean muscle in 90 days than it is for someone already in shape. Even someone just 6 months ahead of you on the road to a fitness lifestyle will find it much harder to keep up with you in any of these challenges!
And most importantly, you will make great strides towards becoming fit again in very short order. How fast has the last 30 days gone by? The last 3 months? Yet if you’d entered a fitness challenge then you’d be in a lot better shape now, closer to your goals, proud of yourself and motivated to keep fighting to earn your health, happiness and showcase body.
So do yourself a favor and get signed up for your first 30-day fitness challenge today, especially if lack of motivation has been an issue holding you back from getting back in shape. You CAN do it, and this is a great way to get started! Plus, don’t forget to let us know what challenge you’ve entered and keep us up-to-date on your progress – all of us here at Flirting With Fitness are in your corner!
