“When I first started training, I quickly realised I was going to need to find a specialist bodybuilding gym so I could be around and inspired by other like-minded people. At first, this seemed impossible as I didn’t know where to go, but I discovered there are a lot more out there then I realised! “ – Richard Anderson, Natural Bodybuilder Advertisements

DO IT, DO IT NOW …

‘The universe rewards action not intention’ I stopped procrastinating, the commitment was made and I started doing my thing at the expensive gym nearest to my house. As luck would have it a new 24 hour budget chain gym complete with a large free weight area, 5 minutes from my house was  announced and would open in a couple of months.  ll It’s true, my approach at the start was a bit shaky, my attendence at the gym a bit sporadic. I wondered if anyone notice I didn’t exactly know what I was doing with the weights. I felt if I was going to make this really happen I needed someone who I could ask questions and get beginners advice from and maybe even train with on the odd occassion. Who better then the bodybuilder at work after all, he was the only bodybuilder I know.

Tomorrow’s muscle is today’s dream

‘The road to bodybuilding success is paved with hard work, sacrifice, sweat and tears’ – Unknown For years, in a secret place at the back of my mind I had a vision of the perfect physical ‘me’; glowing with health, super fit and beyond strong. In the meantime, I got fat, I got thin, slim and back to fat again; the gym memberships and exercise programs came and went.

‘The goal had been set and I was very clear about what I want to achieve for the first time ever, so doing the action should be easy, right?!’ My mind was willing but the flesh was weak. The idea was to be in the gym on a regular basis working toward my bodybuilding dream and hitting weight loss goals left, right and centre. Instead I  was doing anything and everything except the things I really needed to do.
