#1 - MIND & HEART over MUSCLE. What you think and believe affects what you do!
#2 - Your BIGGEST changes must happen in the inside to have a lasting effect on the outside!
Have you seen those
reality shows that transform businesses like restaurants, bars, salons, etc.?
They make it look great by putting on new paint and flooring but if the owners
don’t develop a true business mindset and change internally, they will continue
to struggle. Anyone who is serious about wanting to make a change needs help—
mental, emotional and practical help. There is only so much you can do on your
own and then you would be wise to get professional assistance.
In fitness, it’s
almost the same thing. The biggest difference is that remodeling people takes
time. If you can’t change how someone thinks and feels internally, you’ll
change little or nothing. This is such a crucial part. Talk to any athlete. Ask
them about their sport and what do they do to maintain their fitness level.
They talk differently, they eat differently, they think differently. They
didn’t wake up one day and decided next week they’re going to compete in the
Olympics or play pro ball! The Mind & Heart drive the body to develop the
desired condition! Simply think about what thoughts and beliefs have played a
big part in your current physical condition and how long those thoughts have
been producing your current lifestyle.
We focus on you! What
you believe, know and apply plays a big part to determine when and how you will
reach your long-term goals. We focus on helping you understand the philosophy
of a fitness lifestyle. Anyone can do pretty good writing their own
exercise/workout plan if they research websites that offer FREE workout sheets.
They can try this, that or the other, but they usually don’t last. Some plateau
or get stuck doing the same thing over and over, year after year. Others get
bored or just give up! TFO integrates your life with your workout. It’s
customized to you.
Years ago I was a
fitness trainer and massage therapist for rehabilitation. I focused on therapy
and fitness training for athletes, sports groups, accident victims, surgical
recovery and the general public. Honestly, I became disenchanted training
people who wanted a babysitter at the gym. Modifying exercises for my personal
recovery and getting fit again has given me a new passion and drive to work
with people who really want help and are serious about changing their life. Not
for temporary change, but for a lifetime.
So, if you are looking
for a quick fix, a miracle pill, powder or workout program, this is not it.
Continue your search until you decide you want to bring balance to your life and
make fitness a lifestyle. Then, welcome to the TFO family. It only makes sense
to invest your time doing something you enjoy and are willing to commit to,
right? The program and systems are designed for real change at many levels and
applies to anyone in any physical condition.
Our deep desire is to
help people who want help. Also, one day we’ll be able to help anyone
with disabilities, obese or returning
servicemen and women who need to get strong and in shape regardless of their
limitations. Time is so precious that I
can’t imagine anyone wasting it doing something they really don’t want to do.
