It has long been said that money cannot buy everything, and most will agree if they are really honest and throw rubbish aside. Money can't buy true love for you. Money cannot buy back your youth or bring back loved ones who have passed away. And besides, money can't buy fitness no matter how much you peel out of your pocket.
To make this clear, all the money in the world cannot automatically create the perfect physique, no matter how much you are willing to pay. With safe money, you can pay for membership in the private gym or even build your own gym in your garden. With money, you can also book a 24-hour personal trainer with a chef who will call you whenever you want to prepare a healthy meal.
Money can also be paid for weight loss or “tummy tuck” surgeries that can give the appearance of weight loss. But even in this case the person is not fit, they only have less fat – completely different cases.
But even with these things money can possibly buy, they won't magically get you fit. The sweat and exertion still have to come from you and that's something money can't buy.
You have to earn fitness and that's the beauty of it. No matter how rich or poor a person is, fitness is something that doesn't judge how financially you are.
If you've ever seen Brad Pitt in the movie Troy, Henry Cavill in Man of Steel, or Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the Avengers, these famous actors had to work out consistently for a few months and eat nutritiously to develop their build for their roles.
Do not you believe me? YouTube or Google will show their training and nutrition regiments and you will see what they had to do to get in shape. Even these rich, famous actors had to invest time to get fit.
As soon as you come to terms with this fact, you will find that with money you cannot buy fitness, you have to earn something. If it helps you motivate yourself, just keep the mantra. "If Brad had to do it, I can do it!"
Take it on your shoulders and commit yourself wholeheartedly to a fitness plan. Be prepared to exercise 4-6 days a week for a limited time, even if it is only 20-30 minutes at the beginning.
Everyone has to start somewhere, but it's about starting.
Of course, this habit will take some getting used to, but the better you stick to your fitness plan, the faster it will really become an important part of your life. Once you stick to your exercise routine for a certain amount of time, you will find that you really can't buy fitness with money. You will only get fit through hard work and determination.
Don't forget the importance of including a healthy diet in your fitness plan so that your weight loss results are enhanced. Once you are able to combine these two healthy habits regularly, you will lose weight and get fit much faster than you ever thought possible.
So with every step you take, a lap in the pool or a mile on an exercise bike, keep in mind that you can't buy fitness, you have to earn it. As tough as that may sound now, you know that at the end of this journey you will indulge in what you have achieved, proud that you did it all on your own.
