When we start our fitness journey, the one question we should all ask ourselves, REALLY ask ourselves is...who are we doing this for? So often what brings may people to the gym for the first time is not about themselves. I have heard so many times, "I am going to get in shape to show my ex". This may drive you to go to the gym, but as your anger fades, your drive will also fade, and your journey no longer clear laid out. If it is about revenge, or getting even, or showing someone up is it really your fitness journey? When we choose to start our fitness journey it is important to remember we are doing it for the most important person, ourselves.
