Morning motivation: Keep aiming high

Never lower your standards. We’ve seen so many contestants on The Biggest Loser who, before coming to the Ranch, had never pushed their own limits. They had no idea how much strength and possibility they had inside them. Refuse to lower your own standards. We want you to rise up to the high standards that you deserve to reach— that we know you can reach during your workouts and in the rest of your life. Now that’s a recipe for greatness!
