How Successful People Make the Most of their Fitness


Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work gains success. Greatness will come.”

All of us have that one person that we look up to. For many it is a super successful person; they might be a celebrity, a sportsperson, a businessperson or even someone who we actually know and love.

What do most, if not all, of these people have in common? Success! 

This got me thinking… What is success?

Success is defined as ‘the accomplishment of an aim or purpose’ and so what one person perceives as success might not be seen quite the same by the next person. 

I started to think about what these individuals, who we look up to, do to achieve success? Although there are common traits, the one standout link that successful people have is consistent hard work. 

Put simply, success isn’t something you stumble upon. Instead, it’s a reward for having ceaseless tenacity and steadily working hard. 

When I googled the “Top 5 Successful People” I was given countless lists of the most successful people in business, music, films etc and when I started researching what they attributed their success to, I found another interesting link. 


Rebel Wilson, comedian and actress, declared 2020 the “Year of Health” and was working out up to 7 days per week. She enjoys HIIT training, hiking and running the stairs of the Opera House.

Barack Obama, Former President of the United States, exercises for 45 minutes a day, 6 days per week, alternating between lifting weights one day and doing cardio the next.

Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook, ensures that he gets a workout at least 3 days per week, usually in the form of taking his dog running first thing in the morning.

Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group, is no stranger to exercise and likes to kitesurf, swim, or play tennis. He claims he gets 4 hours of additional productivity every day by keeping up with his consistent exercise schedule.

Michelle Obama, former First Lady and founder of the Let’s Move! Campaign, makes a daily workout a part of her routine, “With exercising, the more you do it the more you get into it!”

Success in any area of your life requires dedication, commitment and consistent hard work. Committing to hard work and success isn’t something we learn to do overnight. Hard work is habitual—it takes consistency and repetitive behaviors to truly submit yourself to the process. 

Fitness is no different; in order for us to achieve success we need to be prepared to commit to consistent hard work. 

I challenge any of you reading this to make a commitment, first in the short term, let’s say 90 days, to make fitness a regular part of your daily or weekly routine. Going back to my opening quote from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, let’s make the next 90 days about consistency. Measure your success for the next 90 days by consistency not greatness and you will be on the path to greatness!
