Well I don’t know what you all got up to over your lunch break, but for an elite few they were down here at Wild Geese HQ sweating buckets, getting strong and earning their weekend break.
Look around your office, do you see anyone looking slightly flushed, maybe with a self-satisfied look on their face. Some one who’s buzzing, powering through their afternoons work load?
That person is the person who did something with their lunch break. While everyone else is queuing up in the canteen, running out into the cold for a smoke, stuffing themselves with bread and stodge, that person was lifting Kettlebells, performing bodyweight drills, boosting their testosterone levels, getting an endorphin rush.
Most likely they’re now eating something fresh and tasty looking, as far removed from your stodge or low-fat “health food” as imaginable.
Now take a guess, which one of you is going to feel sluggish, tired and foggy all afternoon? Thats right, not the lunchtime athlete, oh no, it’ll be you. You’ll be over at the coffee machine trying to trick you body and mind into performing, while the other guy (or girl) is on a natural buzz, sipping on water and powering ahead.
Who would you rather be?
Well many will answer, “I’m happy the way I am” They’re the same ones filing themselves full of coffee, nicotine and sugar in a vain, hopeless attempt at staying alert and productive, a self-perpetuating downward spiral.
A few of you may answer “Yeah, but I’m too tired” These are the few without the backbone to stand up and take charge of their health. They don’t realise that energy creates energy. As you body become stronger and the cardio system more efficient, you store more energy in the muscles, you absorb energy into the blood more efficiently and transport it to where it needs to be faster.
And then there’s the real minority, the “yeah, thats me” crowd. The ones every one looks at and says “I don’t know how they do it” or “Don’t they always look great”, “Where do they get the energy” usually just before the backbiting begins.
Are you ready to stand out from the crowd? Can you stand being the envy of the office? Can you rise above the peer pressure and backstabbing?
If you can answer yes to the above three questions, then you know where to find us and you know what to do.
If you answer no, then stay where you are.
And then there’s the even fewer.
Those that are willing to come out on a saturday and play hard. This weekend I will be back in Bushy Park at noon. If you can find the gymnastic rings, then you’ll find me.
See you there
Or maybe not
