I write this blog after coming back from a long bike ride, half of which happened to be in the pouring afternoon monsoon rain. I set out for a nice afternoon of biking without a cloud in the sight. OK, perhaps it was scorching hot and quite windy (you know, the kind of wind that does bring the rain…), but if you want it, you can do it, right? So, being really eager to go for my ride, I just made sure to have two bottles with water and electrolytes with me and went off!
Motivation comes from all types of different places and is extremely important when beginning your fitness journey. Some people are searching to improve their health while others could be exercising to look better. You truly need to find something that will help motivate you each day to get out of bed and get a solid training session in.
As an athlete, I enjoy sports of all kinds, but I have my favorites. As a child I enjoyed riding my bike and playing football with the neighborhood kids. In high school I played tennis and volleyball. I went on to play tennis in college, but funny enough that was not my ‘favorite’ sport. My favorite sport is big wave body-boarding and surfing. I don’t live in a place to enjoy that as often as I’d like, but it’s a compromise I am making for a bigger goal.

Now, I’m not saying people do not think, or that achieving a higher perspective of the self has no been present in the likeness of yoga or tai chi, but society does not associate exercise with experiencing deep thought.
My people...im back again from the twilight zone. I hope everyone has been well and sticking to their new years goals. THere are going to be some slips and falls of course. Never worry about these. The beauty in training and failing is, when you fail, you actually get better!

Its funny how life works sometimes. I often find that when looking for answers to a question or a problem I'm dealing with, life often sends me signs all over the place. That's been true for me this past week.
I recently read a post on Facebook written by IDEA Health and Fitness Association, which prompted this blog. The posted question was:“The biggest misconception about fitness professionals is…”As you can guess, the answers came flooding in… After reading all of the posts, I soon came to the conclusion that "We Are The Same Person" but we have made different choices!
