It won’t change you.
It’s Saturday, which means no scheduled workouts for my members. I was just finishing my workout when one of the members from class finished her run. I asked her, “Are you ready to lift?”
Her response was a confident, “no.” She proceeded by saying, “I think you are trying to kill.” I stated in reply, “Just trying to make you stronger.” We concluded with age old saying, “What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.”
Now, I know the workouts I put my members through are challenging and for good reason. I will be the first one to tell you it wont or shouldn’t be easy. But isn’t that the point? There is another saying that relates, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”
My question for you, “who starts any program to be the same person?”
You should want and expect to be challenged. Through challenges you can become a better person in all areas of life. There is no other reason to show up.
“What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.”
You should feel physically wrecked after most of your workouts. Try to kill yourself in your workout, it is only an hour! Push yourself past your breaking point, exhaust yourself and get out of your comfort zone!
It is only then you will know how strong God actually made you.
