Yesterday was the first time, in a long time, that I almost puked at Metabolic.
Yesterday James Wilson demanded beast mode on the kettlebells and it took every ounce of energy I had to meet his demands.
See, the way I’ve always viewed Metabolic the last five years is this: YOU PAY FOR THE LAST ROUND.
The last round is optional at other fitness studios.
The last round is the round you wouldn’t do by yourself.
The last round is when you are the most vulnerable to giving in to the pain and giving up on your goals.
YOU PAY FOR THE LAST ROUND
Because the last round is when Metabolic trainers ask the most of you.
The last round is when you’re making change happen.
You’re tearing down old barriers and building your physical (and mental) strength to new highs you didn’t realize were possible.
Yesterday, in the last round of our workout, I did four goblet style reverse lunges with a 124lb kettlebell. This was a new high for me. Frankly, three months ago I wouldn’t have considered it.
Now it’s the new normal.
That’s called growth and I would have never got there without someone pushing me through the last round.
Find that person, find that place and you will find your strength.
Yours in strength,
