Daily Success 2/3/2013 – all I wanted to do was pretty much NOTHING


I have a very stressful and physically demanding job. So for years, when I’d come home from work, all I wanted to do was pretty much NOTHING so I could decompress. I convinced myself that veggin’ on the couch, playing video games, munching on candy bars, and gulping down sodas were all okay because I got plenty of physical activity at work and deserved to “relax” at home.

Yet, all my relaxing somehow packed on the pounds—and before I knew it I topped out at 230 lbs. I knew my wife was disappointed in me but she never said anything, I could just sense it. Then one day when she walked out on my “I just want to relax” monologue in silence, it finally hit me that I was disrespecting her and had to change—quick. That’s when I decided to try Tony Horton’s 10-Minute-Trainer®.

Honestly, I picked 10-Minute Trainer because I thought it was the easiest one (see, even after deciding to get in shape I still tried to take the easy road). I also chose it because I believed I had no time to work out, which was just another one of my many lame excuses. I had only planned to do one 10-minute workout a day, but by the end of the week I was feeling so great that I was up to two workouts per session. And before I knew it, I was doing three 10-minute workouts back-to-back—boy, was I addicted.

Now I’m stronger, my stamina has increased, and the weight is slowly-but-surely disappearing (so far I’ve lost 17 lbs.)! The video games and junk food have all been put away, my spring is back in my step, and overall I’m just happier. Plus, I feel more confident that I have my team members’ backs and am ready for anything that comes my way. For so many years I disregarded the fact that my inability to physically perform on the job could end in serious injury or death. Not only does my personal fitness level affect my safety, but the safety of my teammates, as well as the general public. I have to be alert and ready for anything that comes my way—not just sometimes, but all of the time.

Tony’s 10-Minute Trainer is a quality program that really works; regardless of what athletic level you’re at. With anything in life, you only get out of it what you put into it. So if you just listen to Tony and dig deep, YOU WILL GET RESULTS! I did, and couldn’t be more proud. I think my wife, and my teammates, would also agree.
