the priority

You probably started working at a young age: 14, 15, 16 years old. After high school you probably took a few classes “to find what you wanted to do.” Those classes drove you to the decision of your major; three years later you enter the workforce, or continue onto furthering your education. All the while you continue to work part-time, or full-time accumulating hundreds of hours worked per year until time allows for no more growth, or until your patience breaks. During this time you still maintain relationships, make it to the bar on the weekends, and possibly find yourself watching an infomercial related to fitness. Your think to yourself that you would like to get “into shape,” whatever that means, but never do. Your routine owns you.

When asked, “how do you find the time to exercise?”
I can only respond with, “how can you not?”

Everyone is allotted the same 24 hours to each day. What we do with this time is entirely up to us. Fitness is simply a priority, just as much as sleeping, or eating. The option to not think about the next step, or a personal best, or improving is non-existant. Progress should be thought of as a priority as well. Its not enough to simply step into a gym, complete a workout, go home sit on the couch and turn on the television. The desire to be better in each aspect of fitness is our goal for longevity: preparation, the work, recovery, and planning.
