I’m sorry, but sometimes we just gotta be real right? Yesterday, I maybe got a little too heavy in the old blogosphere with my somewhat political rant. Normally, it’s not a topic I like to address, but you know it’s an easy topic to get yourself fired up over.
But yo check it, I met with some local fitpros (John Bair @john.bair and Travis Pollen @fitness_pollenator) the other day to talk shop, Oreos, and historical philosophy. We had a good time, but what I can’t help but notice was how enlightened and positive they seemed. It wasn’t so much that they were like a fake happy positive like you see some trainers or motivators. It was like they were just, at the risk of sounding too new agey, vibrating on a higher level.
You know, while the rest of the world is angry over everything, these guys like me, are out there spreading knowledge and light while eating Oreos when nobody’s looking. It’s pretty neat to hang with other leaders of groups of people that are doing great things for great reasons.
Maybe you’ve found a home at your local CrossFit box, or maybe you work out at a big box gym. Maybe you haven’t found a place where you feel comfortable working out and sweating and sometimes talking about pecan pie (I’m personally not a fan of Oreos ).
If that’s the case, find a local fit pro (like me) and pick his brain. Find out what you need to know and go at it for yourself and when you’re ready, maybe you can come visit me and my crew out in Bala Cynwyd, PA and you’ll fit right in.
