I was staring at a Frontier Airlines airplane the other day and on the tail there was a bunny with Frontier’s slogan “a whole different animal." I like Frontier’s thinking. Being creative rather than competitive has always been my approach to everything in life. Whether it’s a concept you have, how you implement something at work or how you structure your workouts- it’s best not to look around at what everyone else is doing. Be creative and the only one you should be competing with is you. Keep this in mind the next time you hit the gym. Don’t just jump on a treadmill and try to keep up with the freak of nature next to you doing their 45th minute at 10 MPH. Be creative in your thinking. Try new exercises, new classes, new rituals. Mix it up. Your fitness routine should be anything but routine. It should be new, exciting, and innovative. This approach will make your gym experience so much more rewarding, you’ll think it is a whole different animal all together.
