Don’t Throw in the Towel

Do you plan to stay in the game?

Sometimes a major player in the game gets hurt and has to stand on the sidelines, but one thing he knows for sure, he’ll be back in the game.

At Coach Summit, one of my fave things to do is the Super Saturday workout at the crack of dawn, led by all the celebrity trainers like – Chalene Johnson, Shaun T., Autumn Calabrese, and Tony Horton to name a few. Usually every year I share sweaty pics from the infamous workout that’s among thousands of other coaches.  This year it was 25,000 of us!

Well, give or take…this girl didn’t attend the super workout.  What, Talia no sweaty pics this year?

Nope, no dripping’ sweaty pics this year.  :/   Nope, nada…wasn’t gonna happen.

Honestly it was disappointing at first, but I quickly realized my health comes first.  Therefore my workout was a lil’ different this year that morning.  No holding myself back though, I was still gonna feel good and be alert listening to Keynote Speaker, Gary Vaynerchuk and attending all the different training sessions.  I was there to learn!

My Super Workout Before and After

Looking at my picture – yes, I know – most people would want their before and after to be flipped, but for me, it really comes down to being safe and a matter of perspective.

You see, my Chiropractor, the rest of my wellness team, and I are on a mission to get me stronger physically so next year I can be back at it again. 😉

As actors, it’s our job to live a healthy lifestyle to be able to handle the demands of the career – whether you are working on set 12 hours a day or juggling a side job and auditions.

Are you on top of your fitness game?

Or do you stop going to the gym because you aren’t getting the results you want to see fast enough or quit an at home fitness program because you can’t keep up with everyone working out on the screen?

Are you happy with where you are in your acting career?

Or do you contemplate quitting because you can’t seem to get a callback, you think doing comedy is too hard, or you can’t get an agent?

If you answered to the latter of those questions, know there’s nothing wrong with being on the sidelines as long as you know, you’re still about the game, you’re in it to win it, and you’ll be back in it.

Whether it’s about your fitness journey, your acting career, or anything in between…

Stay about the game.

Regardless if you are just getting started, leveling up, if you have fallen off track, or needed to take a step back like I did – honor where you are at so you can live out your journey and the life you truly desire.

You were born for this!

Comment below, let me know where you are at in your health and fitness journey and in your acting career.
