New is not always the most comfortable thing in the world. New clothes, a new vehicle, or visiting somewhere new all can be exciting and adventurous. But many times when it comes down to stepping into the unknown, or trying something new, nausea doesn’t even begin to describe the churning taking place within us.
Nearing the completion of our first full month of offering fitness opportunities to the Tupelo area, I have observed person after person step through our doors having no idea what to expect. I’ve heard questions from, “Can I actually do this?” to “Am I too old or out of shape to even attempt changing things?” Some have said, “Financially, I’ve never been able to afford boot camps or personal training.” I’ve even had the conversation, “Well, I’ve tried before and just have never been able to stay committed.” It is with great joy that I have been able to witness firsthand the accomplishments of those that started out with questions, but began to find the answers with each passing day.
I’m now hearing statements like: “I never knew I could do this.” “I feel so much better (after the soreness wears off, of course).” “I’m having so much fun.”
Having recently moved ‘home’ from the Nashville area, I wrestled initially with whether or not to go through the process of opening a facility for training. While I was returning to a familiar place and surroundings, it felt ‘new’. And remember, new can sometimes be a bit scary. With the encouragement and support from my wife, we decided to walk through the door. I had no idea whether anyone would show up. And then, if they did show up, would they come back again? As I type these words, I am overwhelmed with emotion as I think about the answers that many have found over this past month.
To see the husband and wife work out together while their child watches from the other room…to see the mom show her son that taking care of yourself is a priority…to see friends encourage one another through accountability and ‘friendly’ competition…I have discovered that stepping into the ‘NEW’ was so worth it.
I tell every one of our clients the toughest part is just stepping into the room. No matter how sore, tired, or stressed you are…just step in the room. Every day, there is something new awaiting.
To every person who has put yourself in our care, we are truly grateful. Our desire is to provide a safe, effective, and fun environment for each person to experience success. If this first month is any indication, I can’t imagine what August is going to hold. Thank you for letting us walk the path with you.
