Fitness Junkies and Civilians Pay Attention Please

Fitness is not like other niches on the web and in real
life, it has an entrance point for all members of the human race. It does not
matter whether you are a pro bodybuilder or the obese guy who was told to lose
weight by his doctor or else he might die. There is no natural talent required
in order to be part of the fitness community, it’s all up to YOU. - Never trust someone who works out in jeans.
Just thought I would add some funny gym humor
The way I see it the world is divided up into two groups of people, evil people and good people…hehe…just kidding, I meant the
world is divided up into 2 CAMPS those
who workout
and care about their health and those who don’t work out, and care about their (just not enough to
do something about it), because they are lazy or don’t feel they need to workout,
some have self esteem issues and they would rather stuff their faces with food
rather than to workout and eat healthily because eating junk food is known as
consuming “comfort food” and working out and eating healthy is not comfortable
for most people.


The first camp is filled with many douche-bags, both male
and female but that should not be a stereo type all gym goers should be
labelled as, there are a lot of nice and friendly gym freaks out there, who are
passionate about working out, helping and inspiring others to look their best. The
fitness freaks work hard to look the way they do, it takes a lot of time and
discipline to look as fit and ripped as some people out there.  The truth is the fitness community is filled
with all kinds of people, within the fitness niche you have your sub-niches
your little tribes/churches as I like to call them.
You get all these popular diet plans and their followers,
you get people who focus solely of power-lifting, you have bodybuilders and within
the bodybuilding community you find divisions like those who use performance
enhancing drugs such as steroids and those “natural” ones who don’t use
performance enhancing drugs which are illegal in most places in the world. You
get popular fitness programs like your Zumba’s, P90x’s, your Taebo’s and son
on. I am sure you get the idea, I mean there is something for everyone in the
fitness world, from fitness programs for those who want to go from fat to fit
or skinny to buff, or those who just want 6 pack abs, the fitness world has it


I feel that you often cannot force other people to become
concerned about their own health and well being, they have to decide for
themselves that it’s time for a change. People do not like listening to words
most of the time, what is heard usually goes out the other ear as fast as it
came in, words provide temporary motivation for those who are not internally
inspired, so usually actions work best for them. When I say actions I mean
things like, if someone is extremely obese probably the thing that would get
them to do something about it would be that final warning from a doctor when
they have a health scare, or a documentary showing how someone lost weight and
why they chose to finally do something about their weight issues (e.g a parent
wanting to be there to see their kids grow up or something emotional like that).
Also people find it easier to relate to someone who has been
there before, someone who has faced the same challenges they currently face, an
overweight person would most likely be inspired by a person who used to be
overweight and lost the weight than a lean athletic person who has always been
that way. Another way to think about it is that a person would find it hard to
be inspired by a person who represents the cool douche bag jock who used to
make fun of them back in their schooling days, unless they use those negative
memories as a reminder of why they are working out, gaining confidence, so that
they are never treated that way again.
I wrote a blog post before about the different ways you
could try and convince others into joining the fitness community, because I
feel there are a lot of benefits that come with being fit and healthy, benefits
like increased self esteem which contribute to other aspects of your life.
People do not like working out because it is not easy, or they workout and they
stop soon after because they find out that there are no short cuts, that it is
not temporary but that’s the beauty of it, once you get through those first
couple of weeks it gets easier, no I’m wrong it does not get easier you get
stronger, you get addicted and it becomes a habit. Once you do not see living a
fitness lifestyle as being a temporary fix but as a lifestyle, something that’s
a part of your daily routine like eating breakfast it becomes a breeze. It’s
cheap to start working out, you don’t even need a gym, join the fitness
community if you have not joined already (membership is free), if you are part
of the growing fitness community (just have a look at the endless amount of
fitspo’s and twitter accounts dedicated to fitness)  then keep it beast mode fitness dudes and
