So today I had a new person come into the gym and join the program. She was very reluctant and apprehensive to join saying that she was somewhat intimidated by the whole thing. In her mind she sees a gym full of people who all know what they are doing, lifting weights, pumping iron and generally "working out." She probably imagines that she will stand out, look silly and lost and not fit in at all. That's what SHE sees.
I see something totally different. I see a person with unlimited potential. Potential to change and become a wholly different person. I can just imagine the smile that will most certainly will fall across her face the very day she realizes that she has made it, that the hard part is over. I can even imagine how she will feel in that moment. The sheer joy and excitement of finally getting the payoff after months of hard work.
If only I could get her to see what I see....

So here it is, the new Ultimate Body Blog. It's much like a person...full of potential to do great things, but that ultimate success or failure lies within the person. In this case, I have high hopes for the blog. Bear with us as we figure it out and try to make it something you will find useful and entertaining! Anyways, here we go!
