Ferrari or Jalopy?

'People are just like this fish; unaware, the noose of death descends upon them.'

~ Sri Guru Granth Sahib

Up until recently, I didn't realise how spoiled I have been with the customers that I have had the good fortune to train. Being part of a new location you don't realise what a true beginner is until you actually work with someone who has never taken an interest in their health, or it's been so long that they can't remember the last time they laced up a pair of running shoes.

It's challenging to say the least. When you are working with someone who has no frame of reference for what their capable of, where do you start, because even the beginning seems extreme to some.

The scariest thing about this is that some people go their whole lives without ever realising their potential. They use their bodies to get from one point to another but they never test the limits of what why can do, or improve upon what they have.

In the words of Tony Little, 'You can drive a Ferrari or you can drive a Jalopy, it's up to!' I know that I don't want to get to the end of my life never having used what was given to me and is probably the only thing that I will ever really own, do you?
