Committing to change

In years past, people used to focus on a new beginning to their exercise program in the first week of January. They would go at it ten times harder than usual, and then…. they would return to old habits.

However, with advances in science, technology and awareness, has come a change in New Year’s resolutions. People are realizing the importance of caring for themselves through true long-term lifestyle changes, rather than short-term quick-fix attempts.

More this year than ever before, I can see that people are more committed to their change goals.

Switch is a part of a wonderful community of authentic wellness facilities and businesses that all share the same goal: To help others be better. We may offer similar or related services, but we are not actually competitors; rather, we are connected by our passion and our choices to be happy, to be loved and to be the best that we can be.

Judging from my conversations this year with our brothers and sisters in the fitness community, the improvements in people’s lifestyles changes are visible at other facilities as well, not only Switch.

And that is wonderful news.

Competition with others is a waste of time and energy.

Compare yourself only to the previous versions of you, and be the best version of you today that you can be, and a better version tomorrow than you are today. Worry less about those things that you cannot change, and focus on the things that you can. I mean, I’d really love to be 6’3″, but hat’s never going to happen, and I don’t resent the guys that are 6’3″.  I just do my best to be the best version of 5’7 3/4″ that I can be.

At Switch, we stand for change, because changing yourself is great, and helping others do so is even better.

That is a truth that I live each and every day.

Mad love,
