The Top Article of the Week
The biggest game-changers (in any area) are often the product of a change in perspective. This sentiment is extremely relevant in the realm of fitness. To put the idea in more typical terms, “it’s all about mindset”. That’s why Ciaran O’ Reagan’s article is such a game-changer. It challenges our responses to injuries. It tells us that injuries are a unique opportunity for growth. This isn’t just a nice saying — it’s absolutely actionable, as explained in the article.
Consider the following two statements: 1) “My trainer was really understanding about my injury and didn’t push me too hard.” 2) “My trainer somehow found a way to get me even more inspired about fitness while I was rehabbing my injury.” Which do you think will generate a higher demand for your services?
