To Kill A Whatever

Feeling like Atticus Finch right now                                                                                                                .
Ready to kill this damn bird that keeps
Squawking outside my window at
3:30 in the morning.
Ok, just had to get that off my chest
Hope you had a good Easter weekend
Mine was fun, but here we go again
Back to the grind.
I’d like to talk to you today about said grind.
Sometimes we all feel like that bird.
Singing our hearts out, putting in time
Sometimes at unGodly hours.
With absolutely no appreciation
(I hope no one wants to kill you though)
I know it can be hard, but let’s consider this.
For every bird that makes his presence known
There is a bird watcher out there looking for him.
In other words, You may not know it
But your hard work is being watched.
It may not be watched every moment of the day
But believe me, someone is paying attention.
I’ll leave you with this today.
If you ever think to yourself
“Fuck am I doing this for?”
Just remember there is someone out there
That thinks your song is beautiful.
Just don’t come around my house singing
That mess at 3:30AM on a weekday!!!!

Just as excited about helping you progress
As they are about helping themselves, then

No Words

I was listening to the radio the other day. (I normally listen to my own music or books on tape) I was amazed at this one story that this guy had told. He said that he was so upset that he had no freedom in his relationship.

Apparently, every time he would “hang with the boys,” when he came back home his girlfriend would grill him incessantly.

He complained that she would ask him every detail of their night, who he hung out with, what their names were, if he met anybody, where exactly they went, and other questions that more or less led to a detailed run down of exactly what happened that night.

He apparently was getting tired of it and wanted to know what the show hosts had for ideas to get her to stop.

Well you probably might have already guessed that there might have been some trust issues there.

You see, what the guy so conveniently forgot to mention is that he had cheated on her recently and she was concerned that he might try to do it again.

Now, here’s lies the issue. He didn’t want to be grilled, didn’t want to say anything minus the fact that he was going out with friends.

You might be saying to yourself, yeah he deserves it. What an idiot right? He should be lucky to even be in the relationship right?

Well let me tell you something Judgy McJudgerson you are probably doing the same thing right now to some extent.

There are no words, no solutions that will instantly fix any situation. He can tell his girlfriend for the next five years about what he did last night, but it won’t make a difference.

My college football coach used to always tell me that you don’t get into football shape in one day if you took the whole summer off to talk about how great you’re gonna be. You have actually have to DO SOMETHING

You see the problem here playa is that you can’t fix problems with excuses.

So what does that mean for you?


You have to put in some effort. It’s only when you realize that no matter what you do, there is no quick fix to any issue.

But until people realize that companies are still going to keep stealing your money claiming to give you the latest fat loss solution that lets you eat whatever you want. Or the latest pill that will make you stronger and more toned without the need to workout.

Don’t get me wrong there are things that help, but like that guy on the radio, the only way to make a real change is to not just talk about it, but consistently be about it.

The General Fitness company thrives on consistency and I have had countless others who have succeeded in:

Ridding themselves of excuses

Having fun while exercising

Being motivated to eat right consistently

Settling for nothing less than their best efforts in improving their lifestyle.

What you do now, directly affects what you do in the future.

That Post About Consistency

I hope you aren’t drinking your morning coffee, because this one may make you want to spit it out.

A little over a month ago, I started writing this blog, I set out with a goal of 30 days straight.

After week one I was amped,
Week 2?
I thought I would never be able to write for much longer.

By the time 30 days came around, well you want honesty?
I only realized yesterday that I’ve written over 50 of these.

You know what pookie?

A lot has happened since I started writing this blog.
And a lot could have happened as well.

For one, you could have seen one of our members who joined around that time lose, about 10 pounds

Or you could have been a part of a fun group that has been growing virtually every week

Maybe you could have lost that 10 pounds you’ve been looking to lose.

I tell ya, I’ve been writing for awhile and you my friend, need to do something about this.

You’ve been reading this blog for awhile, hoping for an answer,
An answer to the pain of not getting results with what you’re doing.

Sure I’m fun, but you know and I know that I speak the truth and wouldn’t blow smoke up your ass.

So there buddy I’m gonna give it to you straight. If you don’t plan on

Getting in the best shape of life,

Having more fun working out than you’ve ever had,

Being accountable for what you (don’t) do and eat

Getting to meet one of the coolest people on this planet. (Me of course)

And most importantly getting RESULTS.

If you are not looking to do any of those things then gosh darnit
You aren’t cut out for this program and frankly you probably should just stop reading now, because I can’t help you.

Oh you’re still here? Well then I guess you’re serious about your health and you should probably take a look here:

P.S. Need a little more motivation to get there? This guy may not be appropriate for young children, but geez he makes some good points. If you can get past his not wearing a shirt the whole time you’ll appreciate the massage.
