Just a few days in and many of you will start questioning your ability to find success. You sure can. I guarantee it. Listen to Betsy's story and know that YOU can do it too.
Can you do this? Can you reset your fitness and your health?
Can you turn around years of bad habits and get rid of that pain you've been dealing with... potentially for a very long time?
The answer is 100% absolutely positively YES you can!
Let me tell you about Betsy. Betsy became a member about 2012, right in that range. So about nine years ago.
Betsy was broken. Betsy came walking into the studio with a cane, bent over at the waist, leaning forward, barely able to shuffle from her car into the studio.
She told us that she had been dealing with chronic pain, chronic issues for over 30 years.
Doctors had thrown their hands up.
The physical therapists had done everything they could.
Basically they had advised Betsy that she should plan on living the rest of her life in pain and dealing with it to the best of her abilities.
They would give her whatever she needed medication wise, but that she was doomed to this life of pain.
Betsy, wasn't willing to accept that.
She told us when she walked in the door, I have tried every modality out there. You name it, I've tried it. She said, you guys apparently have something a little unique and I'd like to try it.
We were actually a little hesitant to work with her. She was so broken.
But we put together a package with some private sessions and with the classes and with a nutrition plan, we recommended low carb.
I think one of the most amazing things about Betsy is that everything we recommended, she gave it her all. She went on a low carb eating plan. She came to regular assisted stretching sessions. She did classes. She walked, she breathed deeply, she hydrated properly. She did it all without fail.
And you know what?
Six months later she threw her cane away.
She could walk and move and breathe.
She said it was the first time in 20 years, she was able to get into a bathtub. She said that with a tear in her eye.
It's out there. I guarantee you, it is out there for you too.
You don't have to give in. You just have to be willing to apply the simple techniques, the simple plan to your life.
And make it happen.
Seriously. It might take some tweaking along the way. You might have to make little tweaks in your nutrition and tweaks in your exercise program, and it all depends on where you're at. As your body changes to take notes of those changes and make the little subtle changes with it.
The message today is to encourage you to be like Betsy.
Say I am not going to give up.
I am going to be resilient.
I am going to be strong
I'm going to fix this.
I know you can
I did it.
Peggy's done it.
Many, many, many people we work with have done it.
And Betsy and her husband, Steve. Oh my God. They are amazing poster children for the whole contracted stretching, resistance stretching, low Carb eating.
You can do this.
I know you can do it.
I guarantee you can do it.
So don't let yourself down.
Don't use excuses.
Because it's a free program, don't say it can't be worthy.
Because you couldn't do it yesterday don't say you're a failure... don't ever say you're a failure.
Because you're here I know you can do this!!
Move well, stay healthy, be happy.
Why do I say live with passion? Because passion is one of the keys that makes it happen.
You're passion for restoring yourself to perfect health, to moving great everyday, moving with ease, losing the weight and just feeling amazing.
Okay. That's it. Talk to you later.
