The Journey of Firsts

Firsts are a constant part of our early lives. Our first breath, our first cry, our first meal. Then come our first smile, first step, and first word. As we grow, we accumulate hundreds, if not thousands, of first experiences. Our first friend, our first exam, our first kiss, our first job, our first car and house. When we reach our 30s, those firsts tend to slow down. Experiences become variations of what we already know, and encountering something new can feel daunting.

Rediscovering the Beginner’s Perspective

I have experienced several firsts over the last few years that have brought me back to what it feels like to start a new workout, whether at the gym, in a group exercise class, or during a personal training session. Those initial weeks of adapting to something different and convincing myself that it’s worth it remind me of the journey beginners take. It has given me a renewed appreciation for the beginners who take that huge leap of faith and muster the courage to start something new, knowing it will be an adventure, especially while others seem to breeze through their routines.

What can I say or do to encourage these brave beginners? I understand how it feels.

Discovering New Strength

Starting a new fitness routine can open up a world of self-discovery. As you move through your workouts, you’ll begin to notice changes that delight and surprise you. The initial feelings of unfamiliarity give way to moments of strength and endurance you didn’t know you had. Each step, each movement brings you closer to a stronger, fitter version of yourself.
