One-On-One with Jason S. Greene Revive Your Inner Child I   asked   a   friend   once   why   he   thought   it   was   so   hard   to   get   people   involved   in   fitness.      He   thought   a minute   and   then   said   “for   starters   we   should   have   never   called   it   working   out.      After   all,   who   wants   to work   all   day   and   then   go   do   something   called   working   out”?      We   spent   several   minutes   that   afternoon trying   to   come   up   with   a   new,   more   inviting   term   for   “exercise/working   out”   and   finally   gave   up,   but   I never   forgot   that   conversation.      In   fact,   I   actually   spent   a   great   deal   of   time   over   the   next   several   days thinking   about   a   different   name   for   the   act   of   exercising.      Then   it   occurred   to   me,   we   already   have   a   term for   exercise   that   makes   it   more   appealing   and   that   term   is…   playing.      Do   you   remember   playing?      Chase, tag,   freeze   tag,   red   light,   hide   and   seek,   hop   scotch,   jump   rope,   dodge   ball,   kick   ball,   etc.      Let   me   ask   you a   question.      Do   you   remember   laughing,   running,   jumping,   and   just   plain   having   fun?      After   all,   that’s why   you   played   those   games   isn’t   it?      Because   they   were   fun!   The   side   affect   was   health   and   fitness,   but the only goal you had as a child was to have fun. So,   instead   of   making   a   grand   resolution   to   adhere   to   some   kind   of   strict   regimen,   why   not   make   a commitment   to   revive   your   inner   child   and   start   playing   more?      I   personally   love   to   lift   weights   and   play pick   up   basketball.      Now   at   age   fifty,   I   have   been   doing   both   for   about   42-years,   and   it   is   never   once   been a   chore.         I   never   have   to   get   psyched   up   to   do   it.      I   never   set   around   dreading   my   next   opportunity   to   lift or   my   next   chance   to   play   a   game   of   3-on-3   basketball.      I   love   it.      It   is   my   playtime,   and   one   of   the   high points   of   my   day.What   do   you   like   to   do?      What   kind   of   physical   activity   feels   more   like   “playing”   than “working   out”   to   you?      Do   you   like   to   lift   weights,   dance,   play   tennis   or   golf?      What   have   you   always wanted   to   learn   how   to   do,   but   never   took   the   time?      Wait   a   minute,   I   just   had   an   idea.      What   if   you   went outside   and   played   hide   and   seek   with   your   grand   kids?      Of   course,   you   will   probably   have   to   teach   the game   of   hide   and   seek   to   them   before   they   can   play   with   you.      Because   the   sad   truth   is,   due   in   large   part to   video   games   and   rampant   childhood   obesity,   most   people   kill   off   their   inner   child   before   they   reach   the age   of   eight.   In   this   high   tech   world   we   live   in   today,   we   tend   to   make   things   like   health   and   fitness   overly complicated.      But   the   simple   truth   is,   all   you   need   to   do   is   move.      If   you   need   help,   don’t   be   afraid   to   seek out   a   coach.      You   may   need   a   personal   trainer,   golf   pro,   martial   arts   instructor,   etc.      Just   make   it   clear   to the   coach   that   the   minute   it   begins   to   feel   like   work,   you   are   out   of   there.      Your   inner   child   wants   to   have some   fun.      If   the   grown   up   on   the   outside   starts   to   look   and   feel   better,   well,   that’s   just   a   really   nice bonus.  Tag…your it!
