Yep, you read that right. I’m finally taking on Insanity. I have been very vocal about how much I hate that program and how much I hate to work that hard and how boring it is blah blah blah …
I was sitting at the beautiful resort where Beachbody held it’s annual Success Club Leadership Retreat and I did an exercise in which we
wrote down all the things we look for in a leader. We had spots for 10, but of course I went over.
Here is my list:
- Big Vision
- Self Motivated
Then I thought okay what about specifically in Beachbody
- In LOVE with Beachbody
- Physically Fit
First we were asked to rate our top coaches in each of those areas. Then we were asked to rate ourselves. I was feeling pretty good, I had all these, I was like alright I got this. Until I got to “consistent” and “physically fit”. When I HONESTLY reviewed myself, I knew I was failing my team.
I have let my team be comfortable, because I am comfortable. I am able to just “get by” and maintain because I’ve had my “big transformation” already. I get a new program and get a little excited and then take time off. It’s very easy. Easy does NOT MAKE US BETTER.
I am scared of Insanity, I am scared I will quit, and it’s too much on my body, I can’t get “that fit”. I am MORE afraid of my team not finishing their transformations, of them settling and being okay with “good enough” and not reaching for 110%. I can’t lead them if I keep avoiding this workout.
It is time for me to step it up and I have a challenge for YOU: What program in the Beachbody catalog are you afraid of? DO IT.
Can’t get the steps of TurboFire? Keep quitting Brazil Butt Lift? Dust collecting on your P90X? Still haven’t finished the 3rd month of Les Mills Pump? Did you buy Insanity and never open? Heck, just been wanting to try crossfit but were afraid you couldn’t hang? If you are waiting for a sign to get started, THIS IS IT. DO THIS WITH ME. I challenge you to take this one on, believe you can do it, show your teams, your family, your friend and me, that you can conquer this.
