Finals week is here and the semester is just about done. As the weather warms up and the days get longer, many students are off to start careers, internships, summer jobs, or just relaxing with family and friends. But with all those changes one thing will always remain constant: no matter what you’re doing in life the healthier you are the better you perform. Wellness is never solely a diet plan, a workout regiment, or a gym membership. It’s simply taking good care of the body you’ve been given so that in turn it can take care of you and be ready to do things you want to do in life.

I remember when I first started this blog, I was a little apprehensive. I wasn’t sure how I would have enough information to maintain a blog for 13 weeks. But as those weeks went by, the easier it became to generate content and the more I enjoyed it. Compiling sources, skills, or just something fun related to fitness became more than just an assignment. It was a great way to help motivate myself to stay disciplined with my goals and to help those around me to do the same.
On that note, I want to encourage everyone to just keep going. No matter what endeavor it is, consistency is the most formidable weapon in your arsenal to crush that goal. Weight loss target, increased muscle, or a shorter 5K time are all goals that can only be accomplished through consistency. So whether it is the first day of your new fitness goal or day 200 when you just don’t want to do it anymore, keep going. In time, you’ll achieve that goal and you will be happy that you didn’t give up when you wanted to give up.
So live it up and never give up. Granted it sounds cliche or easier said than done, but often the most profound things are the most simple.
One of my favorite guys in the fitness industry is CT Fletcher. He’s a raw and uncut kind of guy, rough around the edges and boy does he have a mouth on him. But his message is simple: ISYMFS. This mantra simply reiterates that no matter how much it hurts, how much it’s inconvenient, how much you have to work for it, it’s not gonna happen unless you finish it.
