One of the biggest challenges that face people who want to start a fitness program is insecurity. And who could blame them based on some of the stereotypical thoughts when it comes to what goes on at a fitness facility - super fit people, trainers yelling, and everybody will be watching me - to name a few. I’m sure you have plenty of your own stereotypes.
Fighting through our fears is one of the biggest challenges in life. Whether it’s speaking in front of people, having a tough conversation, confronting a loved one, accepting a challenge, or joining a fitness program - when we fight through these fears, there is greatness on the other side. Can you think of a time when you overcame one of your fears and how you felt after? I imagine it was amazing and you couldn’t believe you actually did it and you were successful!
One of the best things my wife and I have ever done was to make the decision to leave our super comfortable careers to open Wilcox Wellness & Fitness. You can imagine the anxiety that goes along with starting a new business, the fear is enormous. By overcoming the fear and going for it, we have met an incredible amount of amazing people, employ 5 amazing teammates, work together as husband and wife, and impact a community we love so much. Those are just a few of the life changing gifts we have received by overcoming our fears.
