Raise Your Bar!

Raise Your Bar!

“The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort.” –Colin Powell

Do you work to your full potential?

Do you get done with workouts and wish you would have pushed harder, gone heavier, not gonna that sip of water, etc….?

If this is you, you are not ALONE, nor are you Average!

I have been a personal trainer for 13 plus years working with all different walks of life,. Although they push hard and see results, I have never seen the results happen so organically and efficiently as I did owning a gym.

Each day I would come in to a class I would have people from all walks of life.The collegiate athlete, the mother of four, the girl in her 30′s that wants to get back into “high school” shape, the fireman who wants to get stronger and faster to help in his everyday workplace; the list goes on and on.

I would have your “Average Joe” walk in and in 3 months, 6 months, or a year ….. were no longer “average”! These people were power houses that could lift weights, perform movements at intensities that I have seen pro athletes fail at, and most importantly feeling complete confidence on the inside and out.

These people were no longer feeling “average” because of the supportive community they were surrounding themselves in!

In my opinion “Average” is a mindset and where you choose to set the bar determines where you are and what you can achieve!

People were not only keeping themselves from being “average” they were encouraging others around them to raise the bar!

So I challenge you fit ones to raise the bar above “average” by the books you read, the people you surround yourself with, and the environment in which you choose to live!

What steps are you or taking to raise the bar?
