Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.



Wanna get better at something? Well then, you have to do it.
I do tons of stuff in my classes and sessions with personal training clients. Yes, we lift weights, but we also do a ton of balance work, jumping work (joint health permitting), throwing, and just about anything else I can come up with. Whenever I’m showing something new to people, they always give me the Crazy Face. The face that says, “you’re out of your DAMN mind. Occasionally I also get called a few names, followed by expletives. Then they try it. They usually are shaky first, but after a few tries, they’re ok. Then after a few sessions, they’re better. Then maybe after a month or so, they’ve mastered it.
The moral of the story? If you wanna get better at something, do it. Do it a lot. Do it until it’s no big deal anymore. You can get better at anything: running races, doing push-ups, standing on one leg, presenting in front of an audience, sex (no problem, right?)! Practice.
I’m going to leave you with this video of my good friend’s son riding a bike. He’s 2 years old. Booyah.
If only I’d started cooking when I was born….
Your body can do a lot of stuff, no matter what age you are. You just have to teach it. Have a good day, peeps!
