“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.”

Dont WaitWaiting for the right time only ensures a delayed journey and a longer wait to see our dreams actualized. We must learn to seize the moment and begin working to achieve a dream at its inception. How much longer will you wait to lose the weight, get in better shape, eat properly, or start that new workout plan? What tools are you hoping to find that will decrease the time and effort required to realize your fitness goals? You must begin today, right now, where you stand, to work with the tools in hand to fulfill your dream. Today you must decide whether you are merely interested in achieving your fitness goals or if you are committed to the actualization of those goals.

Today, at this moment, you must vow to be better than you have ever been before. You must commit yourself to the actualization of your fitness goals. You must work with what you have and find improvements as you move forward. Today, at this moment, you must make changes that ensure your success and limit your potential for failure.

You must decide! You must plan! You must execute! Most importantly, you must move… now! If you stand still waiting for the perfect moment, you will most assuredly fail! If you move forward, you will create the perfect moment and you will undoubtedly win!

boxing bill 390This blog exists because I have a desire to help move you from your current fitness level to your desired fitness level. I will attempt to do this by opening my vast stores of fitness knowledge accumulated over 25 years, sharing it with anyone who will sit still long enough to listen. In this place, I will speak truth, no pseudo-science, no scare tactics, no half-truths, nor fitness industry babble. While I am a personal trainer by trade, in this space I sell you neither product nor service. I will simply open the black box and show you what’s inside.

Fitness is not a mystic art understood by a special few; it is part science, part art, and wholly accessible to all willing to pay the price for its possession. The price is a combination of learning, planning, commitment, focus, time, effort, and forgiveness. You must learn to speak the language of fitness, and more importantly, you must learn everything about yourself. You must set goals and map out a plan to achieve them. You must commit yourself fully to your personal success. You must focus on your success and refocus quickly upon losing focus to distraction. You must put in the time (learning, planning, doing, and reviewing, wash, rinse, repeat). You must make every effort to be successful and to regain your footing every time you falter. You must learn to forgive yourself when you falter, and trust me, you will most assuredly falter. If you want a magic potion, a silver bullet, or divine intervention, you need look no further than the nearest mirror. You are the magic…  You are the silver bullet…  Divinity resides in you…  

I make you no promises save these: if you learn, plan, commit, focus, put in the time and effort, and come to love and respect yourself like no other, you will succeed; if you fail to do any one of these, you will fail… again… There are no long-term rewards in shortcuts, as many of you have discovered, shortcuts may make the pounds go away for a short time, but when they return, they will most definitely bring friends. So, this blog exists to teach you about the things required to achieve success in fitness (or in life). Your journey of a thousand miles has just begun with this first step… keep moving forward… you are not alone.

Write this down and place it where you can see it all day every day:

I’m the difference between impossible and possible!
