Commitment: Put a Demand onto Your Potential

The definition of commitment is carrying something into action. And if anyone knows about committing to something, especially to herself, it’s professional athlete and fitness coach, Angela Davis.

Since the age of 5, Angela was committed to her discipline of athleticism, embarking on a 13-year soccer career that ended up ranking her in the country. As her athletic career evolved and she grew into a young woman, Angela transitioned into the sport of track and field. She was a member of the U.S. track-and-field team, ran professionally for Nike and was an Olympic Trials semi-finalist and a member of the World Championship team. None of that would have happened without her commitment.

Angela explains, “You will never know what you’re capable of until you put a demand onto your potential.” It was only a few years ago that this kind of demand came into her own life when she found herself as the spin instructor for a birthday ride for Oprah and her staff. After the class she was presented with an idea from one of the staffers, "Can you do what you just did for 15 minutes in front of 15,000 people...with no spin bikes?" After a short pause, Angela said, "Absolutely."

Her commitment to herself and to her potential allowed her to rise to the occasion of the demand. She soon became part of Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend tour, speaking to and encouraging audiences with her affirmations, momentous music and exercises to move the masses toward positive change.

That is also exactly what Angela is asking you to do in this 21 Days of Motivation and Movement series—commit. “Right now you have opportunity knocking,” she says, “will you answer the door?”

The workout of the day is a KNEE PUSH-UP WITH A MOVE TO PLANK, keeping the shoulders over the elbows, elbows over the wrists and the feet down, and hips up into your plank. When the clock starts, your one-minute workout begins.
