Buying recreational ground is a lifestyle choice. Sure, it may be part of an investment strategy, but at its core you are choosing an outdoor lifestyle. In many cases this is a desired path but an unfamiliar one. So in many ways I considered myself a lifestyle coach because it is my duty to help clients get the most out of their decision to be outdoors.
It is with this in mind I learned a valuable lesson. In order to enjoy a property to its fullest you have to be able to do so.
You see, I walk a lot of ground each week. True, at times I’ll have a side-by-side to speed the process up but to truly see a property I feel the best way is to simply walk it. You just get a better feel for what a property is when you take the time to walk the terrain. Well during a tour of a property I realized I was having trouble walking the property… and so was my client. The ground was rocky and hilly and I was short of breath and fatigued.
In that moment I realized this wasn’t the right property for my client because he (nor I) was in good enough shape to enjoy this property fully. At that point I vowed to make a change.
At 41 the body “ain’t what she used to be”. I was a little overweight, a little out of shape and in terrible cardiovascular shape. I could function in daily life just fine and live what I considered an active life, but I wasn’t in good shape. I needed a push, someone to hold me accountable. Yes, I know I should be able to hold myself accountable, but in this case I needed a little push to get started.
Enter Jeremy Koerber.
Jeremy is the proprietor of Fit-To-Hunt who has a concept of helping outdoorsmen get ready for being outdoors. If you’re headed out West for an elk hunt and need to get in shape to cruise the rugged terrain… he’s your guy.
You see, Jeremy “get’s it”. He is a hunter, a landowner, an outdoorsmen. He knows what it is to experience life in the wilderness. That is what makes his approach to fitness powerful. In my case he understands why I want to get back into shape and that has made a tremendous difference in how I train.
In the future I’ll share a few of the tips I’ve picked up for Jeremy, but for now you need to know is that in 4 week’s time he’s pushed me to drop 11 pounds and tweak some healthier aspects of my lifestyle to be more inline with being an outdoorsman.
So, if you want to fully enjoy your property, I highly recommend taking a new approach to getting in shape. Get Fit-to-Hunt.
