This is me today, let’s face it we have all been here. I am exhausted and have nothing left in my tank. My kids have all been ill, and I have been caring for them, up in the middle of the night, waking up early in the morning to start work and yuck, who feels like working out? I have to find it in me to fight my way to the top of this elliptical and stop hugging the elliptical pedals, because that is not gonna make the fat on my body disintegrate. It’s about two weeks into my MomMe Fitness program and yes I am still Off The Chain happy to be working out, being fit, and loving it, but today, I just need a bit of a push. Today is just motivation awful, I am tired before I even am ready to start, and I have to get moving! It’s time to hop on the elliptical, do my cardio and then start my cross circuit training but I can’t seem to pick up the momentum I need to do it. Lavishly living fitness out loud today seems like it may not happen, and then it happens, the APP sends me a reminder that I have a date with my Octane Elliptical. It’s time for me to get on that Elliptical and move it, after all that is what G&G Fitness made sure it was here for, so I am going to workout!
Why is this working out and ambassadorship so important to me? It is not just about getting fit, and getting in shape, it is also about the family that is behind G&G Fitness that makes the company so remarkable and surreal. The owners of this company know just a little(lol) about sports, the beating that equipment has to take and really what kinds of equipment is the best to own, brand wise and cardio-wise. The family consists of 5 boys, all of whom are or were situated in college sports but a few of them have moved on to the professional level, you know, the NFL? In fact it is the Gronkowski’s, the 5 brothers, and their Dad, that own G&G Fitness. In case you still are not figuring out their all-star power and how much they know about sports, here’s a little information about Dan, his dad and his brothers:
Gordon(their Dad): he started for 3 years as Offensive Guard at Syracuse
Rob: thee starting tight end for the New England Patriots,
Dan: former tight end of the Cleveland Browns, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, etc.
Chris: a full back for the San Diego Chargers
Glenn: starting full back at Kansas State University
Gordon Jr: Played first basemen at Jacksonville University
Yeah, I think they are just a little bit impressive in the world of sports, or I might be over-stating that, LOL! The opportunity to be pushed, motivated and use equipment that I know their family personally uses is probably one of the highest honors a person could have and trust me, that motivation alone will kick me from the pedal and shift me into overdrive. Like I have said before, you don’t just go to your neighborhood warehouse club and buy workout equipment because they don’t have the knowledgeable staff that G&G offers. Rather you travel to G&G Fitness, which is in many states and where they are not, you can buy it online! Imagine that they only hire those with really great knowledge of sports, fitness, and training because they came from the best.
Though, if you have been to a G&G Fitness store, you know that the staff is knowledgeable, and professional and they offer only the Top Brands in a variety of equipment from treadmills to elliptical. The equipment that they have will get you the results you want and the business as I alluded to before is family owned by the Gronkowski’s and it is well-established as it has been around for over 25 years. The boys in this business grew up using this equipment, so they know it, and the make sure their staff knows it.
What does this mean to you? It means if you walk into their store, you are not going to get some sappy person selling you a treadmill with features you will never use, because they don’t even know how to use them, you will get the right equipment from the start and you will see results if you commit to your workouts.
Dan talked to me before I decided to do this and he asked me a lot of questions. He is well aware I am not the queen of sports or physical activity and he is aware that I am in a bad place with how I feel every time I attend an event or get in front of a camera. Dan and his staff have no concerns that I won’t succeed, but rather that how far I am going to take it and that I clearly understand that I must make time for me. My job has been demanding and Motherhood is even more demanding. It feels good to just take that one hour to myself and other days that 1/2 hour and claim is as MomMe Time. I can do this because I have the equipment from G&G Fitness in my home. I simply take myself to my workout area, and do nothing but exercise and blast music. Dan & Ken(the GM) want me to workout, feel good and clearly understand my elliptical and how many benefits ONE piece of equipment can offer.
Now that I have written this, I am reinvigorated and I realize I have to sign off of here to get onto that Octane Elliptical and work out. I have the force of a family of athletes behind me and many moms counting on me to show them the way! I am going to make a difference in my arms and my butt, I am so over this. I am ready to lavishly live fitness out loud again today!
