The Power of Showing Up


I have a confession to make: some days I dread the gym.

Like you, I spend most of my days running around trying to check off boxes. By the evening, I’m mentally and physically worn out. The last thing I want to do is find an hour to work out. I just want to get home and lay in bed.


But, I’ve learned to pull through. I’ve laid out goals for my health and working out is a big part of achieving them. So, I’ve accepted that some days my effort may vary. There will days when I struggle. It’s the consistency that pulls me through it.

That is why I love South Landing Fitness. You don’t have to be 100% to move forward toward your goals. You don’t miss out if you have to adjust a movement in the gym. Our workouts vary in skill, degree, and intensity. We often forget about that last part. Intensity is based upon where you are today—it’s okay if it’s not the same as yesterday. 


Even when our 100%  looks different,  a step forward is a step in the right direction. Over a year, every tiny step matters. As a coaching staff, we understand that every day is like a season. They change. They vary. It’s supposed to be that way.

If you are tired or burnt out, I encourage you to show up anyway. There has never been a day I’ve walked into the gym feeling badly that I haven’t left feeling better. Do the best you can do that day (based on how you feel), and celebrate that you decided to show up.

Not every season is going to be a season of personal records. Keep coming anyway. The small steps are just as important as the big ones.

MOving forward

Our goal for you is to find a habit of consistency inside and outside of the gym. Consistency is the place where hard work and results meet. It is the key to long-term health. 

So, give 100% today—no matter what that looks like. If you’re tired, dial it back. If you’re feeling great, dial it up. Just make sure you show up. Keep moving forward!
