Step 1: Give me every dollar in your bank account. If you only have $5 to your name, agree to give me the next $2,000 you earn.
Step 2: If you pass your preseason fitness tests, I give you your money back. If you don’t, I keep it.
You don’t need a better training plan; you don’t need to read more blog posts; you certainly don’t need more time.
You need to do the work, and the fear of loss is a great motivator.
FYI: There is an app called Stickk that allows you to do what I described. You’re welcome to use me as person who gets your money if you don’t pass.
