Can’t or Won’t ? And some updates…

I have some fun, new, exciting stuff below. Be sure to read this email….

First, just a quick note on something to think about this week….

The difference between “can’t” and “won’t”…..

I get a lot of phone calls and emails and Jeff talks with many of you on a daily basis…. Here are some examples of things we hear on a regular basis (if these don’t apply to you, just skip):

– I “can’t” follow the meal plan…. I am just too busy. (Which might mean, I “won’t” follow the meal plan because my goals and my health are not important enough. However, if my boss needed me to work overtime I would, and I would drive to extra games and practices if my kids wanted to do extra sports and I“won’t” ask my partner (husband/wife) to support me because their time is more important than mine.) If this is you, I encourage you to make the time, to put your health and your goals back on the priority list and let the people in your life know that you could use their support, boss, kids, hubby, friends. What’s good for the goose……. Well you know what I mean. Stop making yourself last place, or none for that matter.

– I “can’t” lift that (fill in the blank) (sandbag, kettlebell, dumbbell medicine ball). (Which might mean, I “won’t” TRY to lift that because I have never done it before and I am worried or scared that I won’t be able to OR I am worried or scared that lifting heavy weights will cause me to bulk up.) If this is you, I encourage you to try new things frequently. You would be amazed at what you can do and what kind of progress you break into when you break out of your comfort zone! What is wrong with trying? Grab Jeff, or your trainer and say, I want to use that heavier item, will you walk me through it real quick so I can do it safely…. I want to see what I am capable of! (of course if you are modifying for injury like I am right now, wait until you are better :o) And remember, heavier weights means less reps, but NOT less work. AND women, we can’t bulk up at boot camp. Getting “bulky” or large defined muscles requires a VERY specific diet and supplementation and a VERY specific type of training and lifting a heavier weight a few days per week at boot camp WILL NOT make that happen. It will however, help you get stronger, and more confident and burn more fat.

This week I want you to look and listen to the times that you say I can’t….. I can’t get to camp, at 5:30am… I can’t stop drinking wine to reach my goals, I can’t give up Starbucks, I can’t run, I can’t workout at all because of my (fill in the blank) hip, shoulder, knee, ankle, foot, etc…. You know what I mean.
Instead, ask yourself, is it I “can’t” or I “won’t”? And if it I REALLY is I “can’t” ask yourself this, WHAT CAN I DO? Can I walk part and run part? Can I modify camp to meet my needs? Can I get to bed earlier to get to camp earlier so I will get it done? Can I ask for help?

Put away the I CAN’T hat because it is sooooo last year! Break out the I CAN hat this week. I know that you CAN, so see what you CAN accomplish this week!

And if you need help, let me know!

Band Stretching for Recovery & Performance
Saturday 4/23 @ 9:30am

Everyone has been asking for this class, if you have a stretch band
you will need it for this class, if you don’t we have them for $20.
Once you know how to use the band you will be able to
use it at home and at camp for optimal stretching and
recovery work. But also use it while traveling or during week off for an
“in room” workout.
You will learn the dynamic stretching routine that Jeff uses and
band techniques to improve performance.
You will feel better after leaving this class!
