VFit’s Weekly Inspo
Nothing jazzes us up more than a Monday. And we always try to send these weekly inspo blogs out on Monday, but we are going to be honest and say that life handed it to us this week and we are a tad behind.
But just as our weekly Inspo theme goes about taking action, just because we missed our own self-inflicted deadline to get our blog out, doesn’t mean we gave up and scrapped it.
This week is all about taking action. We love to start our week with ACTION and why we coined the phrase “Never Miss a Monday” as one of our top mantras, but maybe the “start” to your week is another day.
Roll with us on this one and fill in whatever day you want, because the message remains the same for us all.
What exactly sets apart someone who looks forward to a Monday , and one who dreads it? It’s all about taking ACTION. SHOWING UP AND TRYING! Not simply setting a goal, and just wishing it’s going to come true. Goals without action are just dreams. And dreams don’t change your life for the better, action will!
One of my favorite things to remind my members when a class get’s tough or their limits are pushed, is that they came to “work-out”. Meaning what we put with our effort, is what we are going to get out of class and it’s ok for something to feel tough or challenging.
In fact, those are the character building moments that you will grow both mentally and physically from.
This week’s inspo is all about taking action: “Wishing does not change anything, showing up and trying does.”
There’s a reason why there’s some memorable quotes that come from this mindset of action and doing something. Becoming proactive and DOING is what set’s go-getters apart from dreamers and at the end of the day, we all deserve to chase our dreams, to work hard for them and to reap the benefits of not just the end result, but of the entire journey.
Heck, even Nike knows the power of doing and coined “Just Do It” as their motto ages ago.
Meet any successful person in the world, and you know what they all have in common? Action.
Not only are they acting on their goals, they are setting themselves up for success by making a plan and holding themselves accountable for reaching milestones.
Even when a goal is not reached, because you never make 100% of the shots you take, but you do make 0% of the ones you never take. So we like our odd’s in at least showing up and always giving our best effort, knowing that even if we don’t always hit our goal, we got a lot further in life than had we not even tried.
So many are held back from greatness because they don’t show up and TRY!
Take a workout routine for example. That’s our passion, so that’s what we are going to give you as a prime example. We hear objections left and right, day in and day out.
Here are the top objections we hear:
// Many people NEVER start a workout routine because they are scared they aren’t good enough.
// That people will see them. That they will look silly.
//That whey were once in shape, but now can barely walk a mile.
// That they fell off the wagon and have sooooo far to climb back up. That they don’t know what to do (which is exactly why joining a program is your best idea, but more on that later!).
and the numero uno excuse, drum roll please…..
// That they are too busy.
But these are not objections, they are excuses
And here is what we have to reassure you that it’s ok to just show up and TRY!
// You are good enough and you will always be worth it! Stop telling yourself you aren’t and degrading your worth in this world! We believe in you, but you need to believe in you!
// You won’t look silly and even if you do, your tribe should be the right kind of people who cheer you on and laugh along with you. Health is a journey and should be a fun one. You don’t show up to workout so that you can be perfect at everything. You would get bored and burnt out. Feeling silly, or “not good” should be a good feeling and means you have room for growth.
// Yes, people will see you, but welcome to this thing called life. People see you at the store, at your office, at the post office, bank, on and on and on. Human’s are mean to be seen and communicate with each other, and if this is the reason you won’t take action, it should be the very reason you really NEED TO!
To work on this confidence skill set and again, believe that you are always worth it.
// If you once were in amazing shape, but now can barely charge a flight of stairs, oh well! You can’t change whatever happened, but you can take control and change it now. It all begins with that first action step. Then repeat a single step over and over and just keep building back up.
// You aren’t too busy! You aren’t! It’s a matter of priority and you know that and I know that. When it matters, you find the time. Being fit can be managed in 1-2% of your day. It also will pay you back the other 98%, so if you think you are too busy, again you aren’t! Once you value how dang important your health is, you’ll get this and never look back again on this excuse
And the last big objection we hear to people taking action when it comes to health/fitness is, “I don’t know what to do or where to begin.”
You don’t have to! That’s not your job, you are good at what you do. Leave your workouts to professionals who know what they are doing and who are professionally trained and experienced at this. It’s always always worth investing in a personal trainer or fitness studio in our opinion – always!
Our world class certified trainer team custom crafts each and every VFit workout to make every minute matter. They thoughtfully prepare each class, with functional movement a priority, and based on class format, work to bring our teammates the highest quality workout possible, and one that is interactive as well.
We are not a one way live stream where you are simply watching our trainer on a broadcast and she’s seeing a bunch of names on the side of the screen and stats of how high your heart rate is or isn’t!
No no no! That’s not what we are going for at all.
What VFit is all about
At VFit, we believe you need the power of a team, connection, and community to truly be successful in reaching your goals. With VFit, yes, you are watching our trainer lead the class, but before class, she’s interacting and saying hello to everyone by name as each member logs in from their home.
She sees you in your kitchen working out, with your dogs, your children, she gets to know you through having you join the live workouts and sharing your home with her.
We share wins, encouragement, and accountability. You also get to know her as life happens on her end of the screen. Her children running about, her husband walking across the screen to grab his lunch from the fridge.
It’s REAL life – no special effects, lightening or makeup. It’s real women, working and training together from their own homes, hotel rooms, or wherever life has them at that moment.
VFit is so much more than just a workout.
Rachele Jaegers – Owner, VFit Studio
It’s truly a lifestyle that brings the kind of personal connection that is often missing today.
We have gathered like minded trainers and members and built a platform that works and each week we have members hitting personal goals and milestones they never thought was possible.
They do this by taking ACTION. By being held accountable. By not sitting at the sidelines of life, using every excuse why they CAN’T workout, but rather are jumping right in.
Even if there are bumps and bruises along the way, or a bit of a cold, they’ll still keep coming in, showing up for themselves, and do something. There’s a modification for everything! There’s no modification for sitting and wishing your way to health though.
We’d love to help you take action
If you are ready to take action, we welcome with you with open (strong) arms and our support community to help you lead your best life. One filled with all the adventures and joys of movement you deserve. And it all starts with that simple first step.
This month we even have an exclusive membership bonus gift, so give yourself not only the gift of UNLIMITED action, we’ll throw in a bonus goodie as well https://thevfitstudio.com/join-vfit-team/
