A motivational note from Octane Fitness team member and certified group fitness leader:
Are you ready to make a time commitment to your health? Look around you; itâ€™s easy to tell whatâ€™s truly important to a person by looking at how they spend their time. When their health and fitness is important to them, they are the ones that you see making that commitment. I bet if I ask around, a vast majority of you will say no, not ready. And yes I will hear such excuses as â€śI have no time to cookâ€ť and â€śno time to exercise.â€ť The fact is that investing some time every day into taking care of your body and your health is probably the surest investment you can make in this lifetime. It pays off in the ease and joy that come with a healthy body and lower health costs, and ultimately it pays off in terms of even more time: a longer life expectancy. I am sure you knew that already. So make the commitment today, with a healthier diet and a solid interval training workout plan. Life is short; why not do what you can to extend it a little longer!
