If you’ve been watching the Olympic Games, you may find yourself amazed by the remarkable ability of the athletes. But does it inspire you? Why not let it motivate you to begin a fitness or health program for yourself?
Find the Athlete in You
If you think you have nothing in common with the athletes you see on television, you’re wrong. Every athlete starts with a goal and takes incremental steps to reach their accomplishment. Olympic gold medalist Wilma Rudolph said it best when she pointed out how an athlete lives in everyone.
Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”
One Step Each Day
Before you head to the couch and grab the remote control tonight, why not set a fitness goal for yourself? Start small. Can you walk for 20 minutes tomorrow? Can you replace your daily soda pop with water? Can you stop at the market for some fresh fruit or veggies?
If you’re ready to start an exercise program, head to the North Memorial Healthy Weight Loss website and watch short videos that demonstrate simple exercises you can do at home. Before you know it, you’ll be on your own path to greatness – one step at a time.
