Hitting the Pause Button? Don’t!

Here at our Philly Personal Training Gym, we admire John Berardi – founder of Precision Nutrition for building a great business. And for articulating why we want to hit pause and how to avoid it in this great article.

“Life has no Pause button.” – John Berardi PhD

He notes – and we see it at The PrivatGym™ – that all of us want to hit the pause button from time to time. Frankly, it’s probably a problem at every Philly Personal Training Gym.

It’s easy to spot. We’re hitting pause when we stop or delay acting waiting until conditions are perfect. Here are a few excuses we’ve heard at The PrivatGym™:

“I can’t start working out this week, my back hurts.”

“I can’t start losing weight now, it’s almost the holidays.”

“I’ll start working out again when I’ve lost weight.”

Let’s be honest: there is never a perfect time. And there’s always an excuse – or three. The longer we hit pause, the less likely it is that we’ll get rolling.

Perhaps it’s because many of us have a tendency to see things as black or white.

In our Philly Personal Training Gym we face the facts: Life isn’t black and white. Life is gray, a series of options.

Either/or doesn’t have to be your only option at our Philly Personal Training Gym.

We embrace Berardi’s concept. He doesn’t see options as on or off. Instead, he suggesting treating fitness, nutrition, well-being and even work like a dial that you can move from 1 to 10.

With fitness, if a 10 is training for a triathelon, 1 could be parking farther from your destination.

Is parking 100 feet farther away the best exercise program? Nope. But it is something.

And since the perfect moment rarely arrives, we believe in getting started. That’s literally your first step.
