Why workout? What is a workout?

I have this message hanging on the wall in front of my chin-up bar.  I like to give it a quick read whenever I'm on the fence about doing my workout.  It's attributed to George Allen, the former Chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports from 1981 to 1988.  I love how timeless this message is, and I hope if inspires you to lace up those sneakers even when you don't feel like it.

-Be good to your self!

A workout is 25 percent perspiration and 75 percent determination. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts self-discipline. Doing it is easy once you get started.

A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly, your problems diminish and your confidence grows.

A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a winner - the mark of an organized, goal-oriented person who has taken charge of his, or her, destiny.

A workout is a wise use of time and an investment in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.

A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to opportunity and success. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it.

A workout is a form of rebirth. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF.💪
