Day 3 – Independence as a motivator

Today’s 31 Days of Fitness nugget of wisdom comes to us from Eddie of CrossFit Soaring Ledge in Holland:

“Fitness and being ‘fit’ sound great but why does it matter? Independence can be a sufficient motivator. Can you alone open that jar of pickles or run through the airport with baggage trying to catch a connecting flight? What about being independent as you go into your retirement years? Having friends and family to help is nice, but they may not always be around. Fitness, however, is something that will stay with you as long as you are committed to it. So make a practice of lifting something heavy and getting out of breath a few times each week. Eat real food and be consistent with your exercise and nutrition. Independence will find you in 2018 and fitness will be your new companion.” -Eddie
