Push Just a Little Bit Farther!

OK…this post is going to have to be short and sweet, because I am EXHAUSTED! But a GOOD exhausted:)

Last night I did an AWESOME deadlift workout by Fighter Diet’s own Pauline Nordin!  And I am going to tell you…my butt and thighs were killing me.  But since I started going to Legacy Martial Arts, I have found a whole new level of dedication to my health and fitness.  I want to BE BETTER!  For myself, AND to show that I appreciate all the dedication the instructors give to us, AND to inspire others the way I have been inspired!  And tonight was absolutely NO EXCEPTION!  Mr Dominique Jackson pushed me tonight to the point that I nearly threw up!  I think someone in the class actually may have.  By the time FIT class was over, I felt GREAT!  Fit, healthy, confident, and accomplished!  So much so, that I stayed for the whole hour of Zumba with Stacey Getz, who is just the best!  If you haven’t tried Zumba, because you don’t like to dance in public, or you feel too “uncoordinated”…who cares?  Fitness and Fun at the same time?  Who can ask for more than that?  Come and try out a free week at Legacy!  You won’t be disappointed!  Be ready to give it your all, because you will only get out of it what you put in.  But just remember that your being there may be EXACTLY the inspiration that the person next to you needed!  And being someone else’s motivator or inspiration, is the BEST motivation/inspiration you can find for yourself.

Mr Jackson has a saying…”No Recess!”  We have no recess, because WE DON’T PLAY!  We work hard at Legacy to reach a new level of fitness.  If your current level is beginner…DO NOT LET THAT DETER YOU FROM TRYING IT!  These classes are for EVERYONE!  BUT…BE READY TO GIVE YOU YOUR ALL!!!  We will push each other to grow to be in the shape that we REALLY wish we were in.

I have recently made a decision to see just how far I can go.  I am READY!  I am done holding myself back from that last little bit of accomplishment!  After a short post-Bridge the Gap rest period, I plan to push myself to a whole new level.  And I know with the help of Mr Bentley, Mrs Bentley(fall marathon training partner, right?:), Mr Jackson, and the WHOLE Legacy Family, that I WILL ACHIEVE MY GOAL!

So…who is ready to be dedicated and work tirelessly to achieve YOUR EXCELLENCE?!?!?  I know I AM IN!!!!

  1. Brenda, this post is so timely! I have been struggling within myself, wanting to push for more but for some reason holding back. I want to push myself and see just how much I can accomplish, but fear has been holding me back.

    Last night’s fit class almost pushed me to the puke point as well, but I felt amazing when I left Legacy. I want some more of that!

    On Biggest Loser last night, Dolvett said something that really struck a chord with me. He told Jeremy, “Don’t just love the results, learn to love the work, the process.” That is my goal. To love the discipline and even the pain of pushing myself past my comfort zone.

    I think the instructors at Legacy are of the same mind as Dolvett, and they are such good motivators. We can trust them to lead us there. I’m in!

    You are an inspiration to me, keep up the awesome work!


    1. Thank you Tina:) Why do we fear success? I personally think that I fear if I get to the level that I really want to be at, that I will actually have to follow through with my dreams of making health and fitness not only a a big part of my life, but maybe MORE??? I don’t think I fear failure, I think I fear the possibility that I could be so much more than I am right now. Change is scary! But I have hit a plateau in my life, and I need to figure out what is on the next horizon. And in order to do that, things must change. I may be scared to death, but it is going to be a fun ride!

      And thank you for ALWAYS being such a great partner at FIT class. We seem to bring out the best in each other:)
