The Lost Ones

My heart goes out to the inconsistent ones. I cringe, more so than they do, at the folks that show up for two weeks and disappear into the ether. Most people that don’t hang on or aren’t consistent don’t realize what the consequences are of there participation, or lack thereof, has. At the root of this topic is the reason that our program is designed that way that it is.

We aren’t interested in what you can do today, or this week. We are interested in what you can live like… forever.

Keep showing up to see these idiots.

Think about it. Say a guy comes out on a Tuesday and tries the program for the first time. As the workout ends, he’s unsure how he made it through, but he enjoyed the group, learned a little, and got what he know he needed. Committed to continue with his effort to get in shape, he signs up for a membership. He comes one more time that week. As the weekend gets under way, the idea of returning to work and his new found workout routine on Monday seems as daunting as it was last week. In a lull in motivation, the student musters just one class more and fails to return again.

One could view it as a waste of money. Money aside, however, I cringe not because of the member’s unused classes, but at the fact that all their hard work in those classes goes to waste. Three workouts in three months is the same as zero workouts in three months to the body. Not only did he waste some cash on the deal, he put himself through the most difficult training session of his life for, well… nothing.

My advice for those that train with us? Commit to something sustainable and live it. You’re better off skipping class all together and grabbing a cup of coffee than enduring an exhausting workout that will melt away into a training-less routine unnoticed. Commit to sustainability, because your time is more valuable than to waste it with a couple hard workouts here and there.
