Quote For The Week

baseball

“There are three types of baseball players: Those who  make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happens.”  – Tommy Lasorda 

Play Ball

Baseball is a national pastime. If there is anyone out there who hasn’t spent a balmy summer evening up in the stands, with a hot dog covered in ketchup, pickle relish, and onions (that’s how I roll) and a cold beer, rooting for their hometown team – well, you are missing out and I highly recommend trying it. But seriously though.

Fitness Inspiration

So why is the above one of my favorite quotes of all time? Here we are, 10 weeks into the new year and already for some, those new year fitness resolutions have taken to the bench. (Pun intended) For one reason or another (commitments, pure laziness) they’ve already gotten pushed to the back burner and forgotton. Why?

To take Mr. Lasorda’s perspective, “those who make it happen.” In this case, working out even when you don’t feel like it. Telling the gang at happy hour your sitting this one out so you can meet with a kick-ass trainer. Getting up off the sofa and going for that walk. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator. You get the picture.

And then those “who wonder.” “If I had only….” And then there’s those who watch.

Bottom of the 9th

I’ve always admired baseball players. They’ve always seemed fast and flexible. Calm, calculating – then the mad dash sliding into home plate. Booyah. Baseball is one of those sports that requires sports specific capabilities, like sprinting and hand-eye coordination. As well, baseball players need excellent physical stamina and agility. This summer I hope you get the chance to watch a few games. Live and in person. In the meantime, don’t sit around with the shoulda, coulda, woulda club. Get up, get active, get moving. You don’t need to train for the first-year player draft. Just a stronger, healthier version of yourself.

This Week

#1 Mindset

Decide now, what part of the week is for getting up, moving, for getting active. Mark it on your calender. It’s yours. Think of that time like a reservation. Cancel at the last minute and recieve a hefty fine.

#2 Decide

“Shoulda, woulda, coulda.” Ban these words from your vocabulary. Effective immediately. Start with “I can, I will, I am“.

#3 Start

Don’t know where to begin? Here’s a novel idea: Go get on the treadmill and push. Pick up the dumbbell and curl it. Elliptical? Start peddling.Take a nice long walk around the neighborhood. If your a seasoned pro, ramp it up. Add another set. Arnold said,  “it’s all in the last 2 reps so pump em’ out.” Add more weight.

What are you waiting for?
