Let’s start with what RoadWarriorFit isn’t. RoadWarriorFit isn’t about a number. It’s not weight, not dress size, not waist size, not body fat % and certainly not BMI. It is about balance. A balance of spirit, mind and body while away from the part of your life that matters most. What RoadWarriorFit is is different for each of us but it centers around 3 key focus points.
A RoadWarrior’s focus is on:
Spirit: Let’s get this out now, I am a Christian. I firmly believe that Jesus was real, really lived a fully human life, really died on a cross and really rose from the dead three days later. I also know that each and every one of us RoadWarriors needs to have a spiritual center and that your center may be very different from mine. Regardless, on a daily basis, we need to center our focus on that Spirit, be quiet and listen. Morning, afternoon or evening doesn’t matter but being RoadWarriorFit means we need to center ourselves daily.
Mind: A RoadWarrior makes sure that every moment on the road is one that is used productively. They are obsessive about making sure that they are putting as much work in as possible on travel days. Why? Because if they do it on the road, they don’t have to do it at home. Time at home is for family and/or personal goals…not work. RoadWarriors utilize spare moments on the road to make sure that their work bleeds into our time at home as little as possible. The ones who await us at home deserve our attention and affection not an excuse as to why we continue to focus on work.
Body: A RoadWarrior ensures that they take care of themselves. They have the discipline to ensure that the food that they put into their body is supportive of their fitness. They have the discipline to ensure that the do something, anything, every day they are on the road.
Overall, RoadWarriors are an example of how to balance travel with faith, family and health. Just because we are away from home does not mean they we have to be far from center.
