Fitness training, like magic, is the process of making the impossible into reality. And, since I have yet to come across any spells for strength, endurance, flexibility, and the like, fitness requires skill, dedication, and a willing suspension of disbelief.
Is today the day that I make it through all three rounds of the circuit? Is today the day that I break my record for squats? Is today the day I manage to relax my eyebrows while planking? Maybe. It is much more likely if I let go of all the self-doubt, the voices that say I can’t. Also the voices that laugh if I look funny while I try.
Fitness is practice. Fitness is making mistakes and trying again. Fitness is using magic (sometimes four-letter) words to keep going.
We all lift weights with our minds.
