It Came Out Of Nowhere And Attacked Them!
Had a strange experience recently
Let me tell you about it…
Over the past week or so, every time I’ve walked my dog I’ve seen this beautiful Kestrel, hovering, looking for prey
I’ve gotten a bit attached to it actually…its there every day
Yesterday I got out of the car with George (my dog) and as usual, there was the bird….hunting
Its one relentless bird!
I started walking and midway round my walk I saw what I think was a stoat….two of them actually
They were making a loud squeaking noise
I heard them before I saw them
It looked like they were playing, chasing each other
I stood and watched them for a good few minutes….it was fascinating
I actually gasped and jumped
From nowhere the Kestrel came swooping in
I couldn’t tell if it got one of the stoats but it was incredible to watch it happen
Its survival of the fittest out there!
Which…like a bad TV presenter…..loosely brings me round to weight loss
Throughout my time working in the fitness world Iv seen the regulars, Iv seen people start from nothing, love it and keep going….and I’ve seen the people who try it
Give it their best
And never go back
….Which is a shame because the most difficult part is the first step
Fitness doesn’t always have to be “Survival of the fittest”
Its about self improvement
Creating a better version of yourself
I took this experience and tried to apply it to Bushido Fitness.
We created our beginners, introduction programme
We try to educate people
Those nasty aches after your first session shouldn’t make you quit if you understand whats happening to your body
You won’t be disheartened at slow progress if your given proper guidance about whats realistic
You won’t quit when it gets difficult because you’ve got a great support network
And much more
Nature is ruthless
But exercise shouldn’t be
