Do you run out of breath too soon?

I know why.

Being an athlete all my life, and in the fitness industry for over 15 years, has allowed me to work with a lot of athletes and non-athletes in training.

I have noticed that the ones who run out of breath too soon have one thing in common

It’s not because they are out of shape. It’s because they are giving too much, too soon. They don’t know, and therefore can’t manage, what they have.

Exercising is both physical and mental. When we claim that we are out of shape, what we really mean is, “I’m not in the shape I used to be”, or “I don’t know what shape I am in”. We are simply not aware of our physical abilities.

Because of that, we are unable to get the job done (i.e. successfully finish an exercise).

Others have this problem because they believe that what they have is not good enough. These people also tend to spend too much energy too soon.

I call it ”energy inflation”, where our currency doesn’t have much value on the movement market.

Not believing in your ability to perform can have serious consequences for your performance inside and outside the gym. Whether you know it or not, this attitude affects your personal and professional life.

In order to improve your performance immediately and experience better results, all of these types of people need to start learning more about their current levels of fitness. And themselves.

I call each person’s body their “home”. We need to become aware of our resources and start taking full advantage of them, so we can find our way back home.

This is why I wrote, “Welcome Home, 3 Simple Steps In How To Reach Your Highest Potential” – a book that will help you find your way back to your core strengths and improve your performance inside and outside the gym.

So the next time you find yourself out of breath too soon, or feeling like what you are isn’t good enough, stop doing more of the same thing. Instead, download Welcome Home available on and iBooks, and put an end to your struggle.

Thank you and good luck.
