5 Things We Can Learn from Olympic Athletes

  1. Fitness is not a destination. It’s a journey. We see the Olympians when they’re well down the road, but most of them have devoted many years to get where they are. Like them, we must start at the beginning.
  2. Improvement is the goal. Olympic athletes are working hard all the time to shave a fraction of a second from their time, and the closer they get to their goal, the more difficult that becomes. They never settle.
  3. Winning (or, in our case, losing) is as much about training the mind as it is about training the body. Mental discipline is key for athletes and for TOPS members. We must train our minds before our bodies can follow.
  4. Great athletes don’t always make the qualifying round. Just as a world-class sprinter may miss a spot in the finals by 1/100th of a second, we may have days when the scale just doesn’t reflect the hard work we’ve done.
  5. Olympians never give up on their dreams. Some want to win the gold medal, while others just strive to finish the race. But, whatever the goal, they give it all they’ve got.
