GET READY TO GET FIT… FOR GOLF!
In the past, golf has been viewed as a relaxing way the “inactive population” spend a day. It’s the perfect sport with little athletic ability needed and no grueling off and pre-season training. That is most likely why golf has recently become on of America’s favorite pastimes…if you can spend the time! There are now over 28 million people, almost 20% of our population playing golf yearly. Golfers are everywhere and wearing everything!Times are definitely changing! If we take a look back at the body types of many professional golfers in history. Fitness was NOT a focus…and, at the time, really didn’t seem to be needed. Now as we look at what is happening to the bodies of the pros, we see more athletic builds and weight loss throughout the entire tour. From baby boomers to the younger generations alike, no matter what age, aesthetics may not entirely be the focus, but function and fitness definitely are!If you want to play better golf today, you practice by swinging the club a bunch of times and whacking a lot of balls. If you want to continue to play better golf tomorrow and years down the road, then it’s time to get on the cutting edge of the fitness movement. Get out of your comfort zone and put the extra effort in to fine tune your body.

GOLFER OR NOT!

The power of decision is one of the main principles Tony Robbins lectures in his book, “Awaken the Giant Within.” If you don’t like something about yourself, Robbins states that you should simply change it! If you want to lose weight, have more energy, become stronger, golf better or live healthier, then your first steps to creating change is taking a decisive action and committing yourself to that change.

The Power of Decision
Making a decision to improve oneself by working out more, eating better, or perfecting that golf game may seem easy, but it is a decision many people have a hard time executing past the third week of January. It’s easy to want change, but it is difficult to follow through with what is necessary to achieve it. Being dissatisfied with oneself requires a deep level of critical reflection. The depth of your dissatisfaction will equal the depth of your desire and decision to commit yourself to change.
When you know exactly what you want to become, small daily decisions become clearer and easier. If your goal is to lose weight, it’s easier to choose what to eat, what to do with your time, and when to take supplements. If you want to be a better golfer, you will focus on hitting the gym, the range, and the course more often and purposefully. It is not enough to just KNOW. Information is power ONLY when it’s ACTED upon.

The Importance of Goal Setting
You’ve heard about “setting goals” a thousand times, but what you don’t often hear is why it’s so important. Having focus towards a long-term goal is vital when you make day-to-day decisions that ultimately lead up to that defining end-point. When life gets stressful, many people are quick to indulge in short-term comforts such as drinking, smoking and/or overeating. By not creating a sustainable goal, you are not preparing for a difficult mental and physical journey ahead. Robbins states, “It’s all the small decisions along the way that cause people to fail. It’s failure to follow up. It’s failure to take action. It’s failure to persist. Conversely, success is the result of making small decisions: deciding to hold yourself to a higher standard, deciding to contribute, deciding to feed your mind rather than allowing the environment to control you.”

What is your Belief System?

We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat,” but there is also another saying that is equally true. “You become what you think“ is powerful in determining our successes and failures. So what are you telling yourself? Are you saying, you’re fat, lazy, tired or stressed? Are you telling yourself that you will never amount to anything or will never complete a real fitness goal? How about, “I will never be as good a golfer as so and so”? Many people already believe they are going to “fail” a program before they even begin. So what usually happens to these negative beliefs? They usually come true.
It is difficult to envision future success when you focus on past and present failures. You become limited by what you find possible and comfortable. If you want to be someone you’ve never been, then you must do things you’ve never done!We all have an athlete within us ready to transform our body into a strong, fit, and healthy machine. We all have the ability to strive beyond mediocrity and become a person of greatness. Awaken the fitness giant within you – and be who you know you can become in 2015.

I just got the news at about 8:45 that Arnold had passed. I was shocked to hear that we lost a great friend—and that golf lost a great friend. At this point I don’t know what happened, and I suppose it is not important what happened. What is important is that we just lost one of the incredible people in the game of golf and in all of sports. My friend—many people’s friend—just wore out. I know he was in Pittsburgh trying to find out how to make himself better. That’s what Arnold has always tried to do. He has always been a fighter and he never gave up on anything. He didn’t give up even now. Maybe his body did, but I know Arnold’s will and spirit did not. I wish I had another chance to talk to him, but I am so glad we talked a couple weeks ago on his birthday (Sept. 10), when he sounded great. So Barbara and I are just in shock and incredibly saddened. Our hearts, thoughts, prayers and sympathies go out to Kit, his kids, grand-kids, great grandchildren, and his entire loving family. He was one of my best friends, closest friends, and he was for a long, long time. I will miss him greatly. Arnold transcended the game of golf. He was more than a golfer or even great golfer. He was an icon. He was a legend. Arnold was someone who was a pioneer in his sport. He took the game from one level to a higher level, virtually by himself. Along the way, he had millions of adoring fans—Barbara and I among them. We were great competitors, who loved competing against each other, but we were always great friends along the way. Arnold always had my back, and I had his. We were always there for each other. That never changed. He was the king of our sport and always will be.
