This podcast episode is about patience and perseverance.  Half the battle when making lifestyle changes it to "just keep showing up."

I have adopted this mantra for my personal training clients, “just keeping showing up.”  A quote from Woody Allen says, “Eighty percent of success is just showing up.”  I love that quote and believe it to be true.  So many of my clients have stopped and started an exercise and nutrition program so many times over the years, they come to me lacking self-confidence and full of fear that they are going to “fail” again.   Tune into this episode and learn how to overcome the fear of failure and just keep showing up.
