Why Fitness Shouldn’t Be Your Primary Goal


One of my most important and original posts to date! Fitness should not be your primary goal! Fitness should never be the focal point of your life.

It may sound odd or downright weird that someone like me, who dedicates their life to working in the fitness industry, would tell you not to make fitness your number one priority.

But it’s the truth! As soon as fitness becomes your biggest goal in life, that’s when everything seems to go wrong. You end up constantly obsessing about everything – eating, training…

The more you obsess, the more you think about your diet and training, the more will power you burn through and the harder it is to stick to the program.

It’s only when you let your fitness game fall into the background of your life that you seem to make progress with much less struggle than before…

Fitness Should Not Be Your Primary Goal!

There’s only so much you can do to support a great physique: Eat your meals, hit the gym three days per week pushing for progress, and do some rest day activities. That’s pretty much it.

If you fill up the time between meals and training sessions by obsessing about fitness, you’re going to make yourself go insane. Worst of all, the journey will go by incredibly slowly, as if you’re in slow motion.

Contrarily, when you focus on conquering it in life and building the life of your dreams, well… That’s when the time flies by.

Next thing you know, you look in the mirror and you’re like, “Holy shit, I surpassed my goal! What happened?”

So the obvious answer is to focus on improving yourself in multiple ways. Build a great social life, immerse yourself in new skills or activities that you enjoy. Work on excelling in your career, academics or business life.

Focus on improving at life on the whole and focus on sharing your gift with the world. After all, what you put into your mouth and what you do at the gym should not be the most important thing in your life.

If it is, you have completely lost sight of the big picture.
