The past few weeks I got an opportunity to try something- a type of dance class actually- that I’d never done before.
I’ll be the first to admit, I spent most of the first several classes feeling like a first class jack a**.
I wondered why parts of my body were going in completely the opposite direction of where I had commanded them to go.
I was sweaty.
I was uncomfortable.
It was hard.
Did I mention I was sweaty and uncomfortable?
I really didn’t want to go back.
But then, after a few times I almost liked it.
I actually sort of looked forward to it.
I’m 8 times in now and I do sort of like it.
But I’ll tell you this, we hear this all the time with anything new.
Especially with Fitness.
Clients are nervous, uncomfortable, feel a bit awkward, sometimes even hate it…
Then they sort of don’t mind it. Then they like it. Then they miss it when they are not going…
Any new sport, habit or physical activity has that awkward phase. It is normal.
It is the same with building new habits, like eating your veggies, drinking more water, getting more sleep, turning devices off earlier, meditating etc.
We fumble around. We feel off doing the thing. We get better. We back pedal a bit and then go forward again.
The key to anything though is just being as consistent as you can be.
Remember, you can do it.
We are here to help.
