Well chum let me tell you something…maybe a few somethings…

First, let me open with Ashley Madison. Now, don’t raise your hand if you know who that is, because it might be damming.

Not my world but here’s a summary of what I found when I was looking at the news for the day. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/cheating-site-ashleymadison-is-hacked

All the names of the members of this cheating site were released to the public by hackers.

D’oh!

Man I hate cheating, I would never do it and for sure wouldn’t want it done to me.

You see care bear, I’m not perfect, but in the past I did some things I am none too proud of. I’d like to think that recently my new devotion to living a cleaner (less fast food and other body/mind altering substances) life has recently given me more clarity and understanding in many aspects of my life.

For me, the thing that was really getting to me was a lie that I was telling myself everyday.

I’m ok.

You see broham, many of us tell ourselves that same thing.

Then we drink to forget our pain, smoke to give us a quick boost, and then say we’re too tired to workout to reduce those very things that are making us want to do the aforementioned (triple word score) activities.

I get it broseph.

Life is fucking hard

Oh boy do I get it.
But you lying to yourself don’t make it any easier.

Since I got honest with myself, my relationships with everyone are more open and I don’t even have to mention how much better they are with the lovely Marisa.

Honesty really is the best policy and the General Fitness Company can help you find your truth.

Wanna Get Lucky Tonight?

I was just doing some cleaning up around the house

And I picked up an award from my college conference championship.
I kinda chuckled to myself.
Because I thought about how shortly after running the event
My legs were like flaming yule logs

And flashes of me rolling in the infield trying to untie my shoes

With cramps in every muscle in my body sent a smile to my face.

Thinking back, as I heard the announcer tell the crowd that my
Time was (still is) a conference record and the crowd was lucky
Enough to witness the best performance ever on the track to date.
I thought to myself, lucky them…
You see luck is all a relative term. 
Many people attribute luck to those that have more success than them.
Saying that they had the right environment or were lucky enough to know 
The right people and act at the right time.
While I’m not going to deny that it does play a part
I would have you consider that people
Like Kevin Hart (who just surpassed Jerry Seinfeld in ticket sales)
Or Oprah, or anyone who seems like they just came out of nowhere
Did not just come out of nowhere, but were actually there 
The whole time busting their asses to get where they are today.
It’s not a matter of running through walls till 
Your brains leak through your nostrils
But it certainly is not sitting around thinking that
Everything is going to work out for itself because supposedly
God wants you to struggle through just enough “tests”

So that you receive good blessings.

Luck is about finding ways to learn and

Accepting the fact that you are going to experience pain

But through pain, you will learn the lessons that will help you to

Grow like a seed through the dirt and muck, up into the light. 

Luck shmuck, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from living in a 
Moldy basement for half a year and with a car that didn’t go in reverse, is that
Nobody is gonna give you anything and when you get “lucky” it’s
Because you have done something in the past that has put you in the situation
To receive that good fortune.
You want to “get lucky?”
Learn how to copy nature and plant seeds that will germinate
Into freaking awesomeness.
It’s easy and I can show you how

P.S. As I grow older, I believe less and less in good or bad luck. I’m starting to believe more in the fact that in everything there is a lesson. You can say it’s God trying to teach us something, mother earth, or some other infinite source. It’s not a matter of your belief of who you should pay spiritual responsibility to in order to receive good fortune. It’s a matter of recognizing opportunities to grow and taking them so that you can deserve what you think you should be lucky enough to receive. Talk soon…

Half-Hearted = Fully Bruised Behind

So the other day I’m talking to a girl friend of mine
She’s a gymnastics coach on the side so
We were comparing notes on our different
Training backgrounds

We were talking about how to teach people something new
Like performing a new stunt in gymnastics or
Learning a new technique for an obstacle
We both agreed on one thing

If you half ass anything trick or stunt, you’re gonna get hurt

I’m not saying that if you do go all out that you won’t get hurt
But the odds are much more in your favor that you’ll have more
Control over what you are doing and will be able to land properly
Should something go awry

This of course, applies to life as well
Sometimes, hombre it can be easy to go halfway and
See no results then say it didn’t work

I realized this when I was first trying to conquer
My first real challenge the salmon ladder
I always got hung up on one side which simply
Meant that I was only controlling the side I
Was looking towards
So the person helping me
Told me that I just have to look straight ahead
And trust that I put forth enough effort to get both
Parts of the ladder over the rungs
Since that day I rarely have issues with that obstacle

So it’s like this cupcake
If you trust what you’re doing you save
Yourself the time and effort of meticulously checking
Your work,
You’ve done it a million times

That’s how I feel with our program
I’ve studied many forms of training and
Movement,
I’ve used my knowledge to compete in many
Athletic competitions including my recent
Run at American Ninja Warrior

I will check your work for ya and help
You succeed faster because you won’t
Be afraid to do something new or review
Something that may be challenging

You ready to go all out?
There’s no time like the present and our present is time…
