One of the things I love most about working out is how we are forced from our comfort zones on a regular basis.
I remember reading a statistic years ago that only about 7% of North Americans were regularly committed to exercise. 7%!!!!
If that’s even close to true, it’s not hard to understand why. We humans are designed to seek comfort, familiarity, and to avoid change.
But being active, physically working hard and being aware of our bodies forces us to embrace the opposite of those comfortable feelings we desire.
Those who are able to replicate this dedication and who move toward discomfort regularly are the ones who will always remain healthy and fit. The rare small percentage.
No workout ever feels easy. But for what lies on the other side of that commitment, it’s always worth it.
Do you agree?
