Happy birthday Togo – today we celebrate the undersized, 12-year-old husky who saved an Alaskan village in 1925 from a deadly outbreak of diphtheria. Togo defines the spirit of TogoRun and his untold story is a constant inspiration for us to beat the odds and go the extra mile for our clients. 🐕🎂#courage #commitment #creativity #craftsmanship #typicallytogo #woof
"How do you retain clients?" As a Personal Trainer and Online Fitness Coach, I often get asked how I retain my clients.
Surely, once they have hit their targets, they'd leave?
The most common answer here is "they buy into the trainer's personality, not the training itself". Or something along those lines.
That's all well and good when you're training someone in person.
But what about online clients?
As humans, we love to dream. It gives us a sense of purpose, an adrenaline rush. We get so ecstatic and motivated, we feel happy.
Then the hard work starts.
We get stressed, tired and fed up.
We need another "hit", another dream.
Goal setting can help stay focused on one goal and work towards until.
Then we set another.
We are designed to dream, we get addicted to this process of goal setting.
And that's how I retain my clients. Through a process of seeking a sense of achievement, enjoying the satisfaction of hitting a target then aiming for the next hit of adrenaline of chasing a dream.
What's your dream? What's your reason you do what you do?

People sometimes will use the expression, "We all have our cross to bear." But our cross to bear is not whatever we find difficult in life. The cross to bear, so to speak, is the same for everyone: it is dying to self.
Dying to self means resisting the temptation to do what everyone else is doing when you know it is wrong, forgiving instead of harboring a grudge, putting down the remote control and picking up the Bible, praying when you would rather be sleeping, swallowing your pride and telling someone about Jesus Christ. Dying to self means doing what God wants you to do rather than doing what you want to do.
Jesus said, "Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple" - Luke 14:33. That does not mean you must take a vow of poverty and give every possession away to be a disciple of Jesus. "Forsake all" literally could be translated, "Surrender your claim to, say good-bye to." This means that true disciples of Jesus are not possessed by their possessions.
When you die to yourself and take up the cross, you will experience joy and an overflowing life. The apostle Paul put it this way: "My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me - Galatians 2:20.
If you want to be a disciple, then you must love God more than anyone or anything else. You must deny yourself. And you must take up the cross and follow Jesus ✨

When I was young, I thought I was wise. I thought I knew what love was. It was this thing that happened to you. Something rife with emotion, high on drama. You felt it!! And if the crazy feeling of infatuation left you, you were no longer in love. So when the feeling left, so did I.
It is wise to listen to those more experienced than you. The teachers in my life, my mother, my aunts, older friends, mentioned things like “true love is laying down your life for someone. When you truly love someone, there are times when you sacrifice your personal happiness for the greater good of the committed relationship you’re in.”
I thought they were crazy. Inexperienced. They must have never fallen in love! How could love require sacrifice? If I’m in love, then I’m happy all the time, right? And if I have to sacrifice my happiness, how can that be love?” Selfish. I was really selfish. .
By the time we married, somehow I had gathered enough wisdom in my fuzzy little brain to know that those old people in my life knew what they were talking about. I had enough failed relationships to know that true love really did require sacrifice. And commitment, time to grow, and a ton of forgiveness. .
That didn’t make the first few years of our marriage any easier. Nope. We tried. And failed. We screwed up so bad. So often. We became more selfish. Until we finally broke. Our marriage crumbled. In our desperate time we once again leaned on the wisdom of our elders, who kindly led us to redemption. .
We started wielding forgiveness like a sword, cutting a bloody path through our selfishness and ego, beheading our enemy, Pride. We laid a new foundation for our marriage starting with accepting each other exactly the way we were, covered in dirt and bloodied up. .
It wasn’t easy. But the prayers of my saint mother, combined with blunt talks of TRUTH with Anthony’s parents, brought us here. To the best version of us we’ve ever been. .
Today we truly CELEBRATE 8 years of marriage. I’ve never loved this man more. He is my absolute rock right now as we journey through hard times with my moms health. Sometimes I cannot believe the change in our marriage. (Continued in comments)
Today made my 100th @onepeloton

I’m celebrating my victories big and small. Are you?
Thank you Ally!
Love this because its so true. If you do something consistently each day over time you will see a difference, it will work! Most failure comes from doing things occasionally & expecting to be a success. It’s not what you say or what you do when people are watching. It’s the consistent effort you do every day when no one is watching !

Today was one of those days where you look around and you realise you are EXACTLY where you're meant to be. Not underwhelmed. Not overwhelmed but perfectly whelmed.
I joined a behaviour change project called @activemovementschools
a few months ago that makes every child less sedentary, every day to help beat childhood obesity and diabetes. Being someone heavily invested in the emotional well-being and IQ of myself and others personally and professionally, I made it my perogative to build a part of the program that fulfilled my soul purpose and took ownership over an area that was less of their expertise but in great demand. Mental Health.
I stood at Godolphin Junior school infront of hundreds of children from year 3-6 catching their eyes, smiling at them, acknowledging their fascination with the 'white blonde lady visitor' and facilitating the start of an education that will change their lives forever.
I then went to Littlewood in Slough and sat with the head and deputy to discuss how we can help their children enjoy their lives more at school and at home who have special needs and learning difficulties. The rise of ADHD, autism & opposition defence disorder is on the up. And it's not slowing down. I froze when I heard first hand how children are affected when they've experienced severe trauma early on in their lives. Always falling to the failure because of being petrified of failing themselves. Retreating. Not wanting human contact. My chest is tightening, my heart is aching and I'm welling up on the tube writing this because I know how they feel. Not because or suffering trauma equal to theirs when I was young but I understand now. Some of the darkest moments in my life that have happened to me in the past two years have lead me to be able to not just sympothise with these children but empathise with them. This close relativeness to their experiences is what's going to help me feel my way into curating the most effective, sustainable and easily adopted program for them.
I've meditated on my legacy for so long and I can finally see how part of it is supposed to exist in this world 🙏.

Have you noticed the more action oriented you are the more motivated you become? Don’t know what I’m talking about?!? Give it a try. Something crosses your mind: an idea, a desire, a drive or impulse. Is it safe? Are you not going to hurt yourself or someone else? Might you actually create something, help someone or get one step closer to something you’ve been meaning to get done? Then don’t delay. Go for it NOW. If you wait the energy will dissipate and your brain will talk you out of it. So here is the formula: keep a singular focus on forwarding your mission, take action, release the results, then repeat. Do it and tell me about what happens and how it feels.

DAY 3, DEADLIFT FOCUS - UPLIFTED by @megsquats
Yesterday I was convinced that I wasn’t going to go to the gym - I was feeling sick 🤢, I had left from work early, and I took a LONGGGG nap 💤.
But then I realized that no one else was going to motivate me and push me to get off of my butt and go 💫 - only I could do those things. So, I put on my new @gymshark
gear (new workout gear always motivates me), grabbed my gym bag, and left because I knew that if I thought about it any more, I’d convince myself out of going.
Moral of the story? Some days are going to suck. Some days we are NOT going to want to do the do. Some days we are going to come up with every excuse not to go. Life is never linear, we have high times and we have low times - those things we cannot control or change. However, we CAN control how we respond to those things and the CHOICES we make. I CHOOSE to be better and I CHOOSE my health. Because in the face of adversity, we need to always CHOOSE what’s BEST for ourselves; not listen to the NOISE in our heads telling us the OPPOSITE. 💕🤗
