People think of the gym as a chore, an after thought. When in reality, a trip to the gym is an investment in your life, your own well being. Think of going to the gym like a trip to the bank, every time you go you are making a deposit, and your investment continues to grow.
You can continue to let every negative event and situation in your life dictate the person you are and will continue to be or you can refocus your energy on something that truly matters. You can continue to be consumed by your job, toxic relationships and all of the material excess that defines our society or you can make your own way.
