I have never been much of an athlete myself, but am often amazed at what professional athletes have been able to train their bodies to accomplish.
Watching the Olympics is just one way this really comes to light. Some people may say they are just blessed with talent, but I think there is also a lot of discipline and motivation that goes along with that.
Our bodies are able to accomplish amazing things when we have the right training and put our mind to something.
I have always wondered if professional athletes like that remain in shape for the rest of their lives. Or do some of them get lazy, gain weight and let their bodies get out of shape?
If you let the law of physics naturally take over, you will lose muscle tone and gain weight. I think it takes constant discipline to work against the laws of gravity and physics when it comes to the aging process.
