Success in fitness comes from consistency and not giving up.
Giving up is easy and effortless. The folks who do not give up are the ones that will reach their fitness and athletic goals.
In my career, I have seen people make up all kinds of excuses to give up on working out and being in shape.
I came across this intense video of Lewis Pugh talking about his freezing, “ball shriveling” swim in the North Pole and Mount Everest’s Lake Imja and how he wanted to give up so many times and what he did to overcome the desire to give up and quit.
I think there is a lot to be learned here from this video and I hope it will inspire you to continue on your training and not give up.
Also, pay close attention to what he says about being able to “adapt” if you want to succeed.
