I swear this is a true story

I know I've been writing about this for a few weeks, but I swear this story is 100% true.

I was outside a local gym over the weekend and overheard a few people leaving a class. All they could talk about was how sore they were. That was literally the entire conversation.

"I couldn't walk right for three days after the last class."

"I hope I feel better tomorrow."

...and so on and so forth.

Futurama's take on exercise

I swear I'm not making this up.

I felt kind of sorry for them. I'm not sure they had such a great experience. Maybe they did. I don't want to speak for them. It sounded like they were trying to convince themselves of something. I just know most people don't like to start an exercise program feeling like they can't walk.

I also know that people constantly drop out of exercise programs because they think it's not worth it if they have to be that sore to get results.

And the fitness industry does no-one any favors with its "RISE-AND-GRIND-YOU'VE-GOT-TO-WANT-IT-SO-BAD-IT'S-ALL-YOU-CAN-EVER-THINK-ABOUT" messaging.

It's a load of cr*p. (pardon my French)

It doesn't have to be that way.

You can start to exercise in a way that's friendly, sustainable, and maybe...just maybe...a little fun and gentle.

I like being able to walk after a workout. How about you?

If so, we're holding a seminar at CASTRO VALLEY Fitness this Saturday the 30th at 1pm. It's part of our Grand Re-Opening Celebration.

It's FREE and I promise we won't be holding the "real" information back. You'll get you everything you need, and if you need more, then we'll hang around and answer every single question until you feel good about what you've learned.

I mean it. The fitness industry is full of useless carnival barkers and we refuse to be one of them.

Here's the information:

The most important thing you can get from a workout is the desire for another one

P.S. Next week I'll get back to some different content, but I've been spending all my time getting ready for the this Saturday. I'm really proud of how it's turning out and I really think it's going to help some people get a better perspective
