Our Lagree Fitness trainer and Megaformer Challenge mentor Kelly Dalby wants you to find your why
I can think of many reasons that may have driven you to join the Megaformer Challenge. Summer getting further and further away in the rear view mirror, colder weather calling for jeans that feel a little bit snug. Maybe your instructor got super passionate and talked you into it or you genuinely need to turn some kind of corner right now. Maybe in a sleep dazed, Facebook scrolling state, you found yourself signing up. All valid reasons, but every single one of them holds some kind of deeper meaning, and you are going to find yours right now.
If you joined us last year, this game will be familiar to you. If not, I’d like to introduce you a little game called THE 5 WHYS and it goes a little something like this…
Why am I doing Megaformer Challenge?
And why is that important to me?
For example, for me personally:
Why am I doing Megaformer Challenge? Because I feel a bit gross, I have been injured, not training as much, stressed and for some reason that excused me from also eating well
But why? Because I need a kick up the butt
But why? Because I want to feel good
But why? Because when I feel good I make good choices, I move more, and I eat well
And why is that important to me? Because when I move regularly, and I nourish my body well, I am more grounded, I’m more tolerable and a nicer person to be around.
BOOM! I want to feel grounded, I want to be more tolerable and I want to be a nice person to be around. You see, we get caught up in our own individual coping mechanisms, for some that will be booze, for some it’s shopping, for some it’s actually exercise, for me, it is indulging in things that don’t add value to my body. SUGAR! And so the cycle begins.
Let’s use this month to get to know ourselves better, and we can start right now, but not just by signing up, and not just by asking ourselves WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY… but by GENUINELY caring. When we genuinely care for someone, we put their health and happiness first, and for the next 31 days, that someone is YOU.
