My gym had 70 new registrations this New Year. Today, hardly after 20 days, 50% of those 70 people have stopped coming. And this is the scenario almost every year. Every beginner goes through the dilemma of keeping up with their efforts towards their health which more often than not, ends up nowhere. So what is the problem here? Broadly, there are 2 main chains attached to you, weighing you down, that keeps you from moving ahead – 1) Lack of knowledge, or information overload and 2) Lack of motivation. So how do you deal with that? Two simple solutions for two problems – Proper education, away from the myths and information overload surrounding you, and real people who have come from where you are today, into the world of possibilities, to show you that even you can do it. That’s where motivation comes from when you can relate to it.
