Why Are You Here?

So it’s January — which means peak season for making shiny new deals with your future self: we’re getting fit, going to eat right, going to run every day, crush weights and drink green smoothies until we look like Bruce Banner on a rampage.

[A]ll the tupperware, membership deals and active-wear in the world won’t make a lick of difference if you didn’t start work on what matters most.
And according to my Instagram and Facebook feed, there is an entire army of selfie-taking fit-lebrities ready to help me transform into a 2016 Adonis — just try these “5 fat-torching super-moves”; grab your “nutri-ninja-turbo-blitz-bullet-mixo for a liver-blasting superfood-antioxidant-metabolism-blasting smoothie”; or (my personal favourite) “never eat this food again and suddenly have a six pack.”

Now don’t get me wrong; I’m all for getting your shit in order and becoming a healthier you. What I’m not about is the epic trail of BS that we get told (and worse — we tell ourselves) about how this is all going to happen.

Because the raw truth is this: all the tupperware, membership deals and active-wear in the world won’t make a lick of difference if you didn’t start work on what matters most. And it’s one thing virtually no one talks about. It’s not pretty or sexy and it doesn’t look great in a selfie on Instagram, but it’s the only thing that matters.

TIME FOR SOME KNOWLEDGE BOMBS.

“Fitness” is just a word.

“I’m going to work on my fitness” is a fairytale statement.

For the vast majority of us, fitness isn’t “20% in the gym and 80% in the kitchen.”

It’s 100% in your head.

And if you don’t start there… then I’ll see you next January and we can start all over again.
