The first time I set foot in a gym was shortly after I turned 45 years old. I had always been skinny and not very strong but, for some reason, I woke up at 45 and realized I would only get weaker as I aged unless I took some initiative. 

I set two modest goals: to gain 5 kilograms and build some visible muscle. Then, I immediately hired a personal trainer at the local gym. It wasn’t cheap, but I figured that a 45-year-old man with no experience in the gym would be wise to get some expert instruction to learn how to handle weights and avoid injuries. 

It’s been two and a half years since my first training session. I continue to hit the gym 3 to 5 times per week, and both my initial goals have been met. I have to come to love the process of working out and especially how it makes me feel stronger afterwards. My willpower and discipline have improved. 

The point is, you can start wherever you are. You could be 15, 25, 45, or even 65. You might be skinny or perhaps a bit chunky. Whatever. Just start now. You might choose the gym. You might prefer jogging in the park. Maybe you fancy swimming. Whatever it is, just make a decision to start now and then follow through. Then, don’t ever give up. Continue doing it until it becomes a habit; until you become anxious about missing it; and until you begin looking forward to your next opportunity to do it. 

Sayonara until next time.
