Today’s motivation is all over the board and I love it. We have a couple well known fitness professionals who share their story of rising from the dark and finally living the life they envisioned.
We also have an article from our favorite women’s fitness site about taking your thought’s of dismay, disrespect, and disgust when it comes to your body, and turning those thoughts into love, appreciation, and amazement of what your body is capable of.
Without further ado, here is some inspiration to start your week…
How Extreme Focus Can Change Your Life by JC Deen- JC is a no-nonsense guy. That’s why we like people like him so much. He is very good at understanding what makes people tick, and using those tools to better his clients. I think he gets that, because for a long time he struggled to live a fulfilled life. A life of meaning. This article over at thechangeblog.com is in a nutshell, his life story, and how JC created through focused effort, a rewarding existence. Excellent Mr. Deen.
Moving North of the Vag by Jim Wendler– A effing fantastic title from a badass strength coach. This may be an issue that never gets resolved, but if people keep being soft, badasses like Jim are gonna keep showing up. The uphill battle against lower and lower testosterone (the symptom of the universe, Black Sabbath plug!) in the world rages on, but so do the very few who train like motheeffing animals. A short quick article to remind you to step your game up and get after it.
Love Your Body by Girls Gone Strong- This is a contribution article from the women of GGS. Each talk about what part of their body they love from all the work of training paying off. “Train because you love your body, not because you hate it.” A model article for all girls to read. The cynicism about your body is not sexy, believe me. A confident, strong woman who trains hard and loves her body is the most attractive thing a woman can do.
