There’s a clear link between how we feel about ourselves physically and how we feel about ourselves emotionally. AND how that translates into physical and emotional energy. A fit and healthy body supports a fit and healthy mind.
Lately I’ve been limping along at home, trying to stay motivated and on task with my boring and lonely little workout videos. (Am I the only person in America who finds that excruciating?) Earlier this year, I thought I’d hit pay-dirt with an awesome new fitness center in town – amazing instructors; fantastic classes; beautiful facility. But then quickly I found the classes a little too crowded for my liking, and then the schedule changed and didn’t fit my own anymore. Sigh. Back to my sad little home workouts.
And then I remembered Anytime Fitness. A few years ago I was a member for awhile until life got in the way (another story for another time). It was a great experience, and now they’ve opened a brand new location basically on my way home from work. Not only do they have a clean, immaculate facility, but their equipment is state-of-the-art and available 24/7. This new place even has yoga classes included in my membership, plus a cool (free! check it out!) website at www.AnytimeHealth.com.
Anyway, so I called for an appointment yesterday and then met with the manager, Heather, right after work. She gave me a quick tour and got me signed up. The monthly fee is not only reasonable, but I get a rebate from my health insurance if I go at least 12 times a month. Can’t beat that, huh?
I know this sounds like an Anytime Fitness commercial. It’s not, I promise. But I’ve been impressed with them in the past, and I still am. Physical fitness is key to a healthy, whole and integrated mind/body/spirit, and I like how Anytime Fitness makes it so available in such a simple, approachable way.
I believe good health – to the extent of our own influence – is essential to reaching the potential that lives within us. Anytime Fitness seeks to “improve the self-esteem of the world,” and I love that. Here’s a quote from their website that explains why:
You may think, “Why would a fitness company care about self-esteem?” The answer is easy—we can’t imagine anything that’s more important—especially when it comes to achieving health and fitness goals or owning a business that makes a difference in people’s lives.
Self-esteem is central to everything a person does, and it can be the difference between success and failure, being positive or negative, and feeling happy or sad.
Ultimately, self-esteem affects how a person feels about themself and their worth. And helping people feel better about themselves is at the heart of our business.
Pretty awesome, huh? Have a wonderful day, and do something good for yourself.
