Let's Talk Motivation

Motivation has never been a problem with me in life, whether internal or external, whether it was about working or about getting fit. Due to this fact you would think that staying motivated is easy for me, but it isn't. I have just found my motivation and what works for me for staying motivated. This is the topic for today's Let's Talk: Motivation.

Motivation is one of the biggest struggles and hurdles you'll ever encounter in life. When it comes to fitness it's more noticeable because you have to come to terms with it and notice it for you to get anything done and for you to accomplish your goals. The first question most people ask is often times not what to do but rather "How do I get motivated to get going?" and once they've gotten going, very often times they run across the question "Should I keep going?" and today we're hear to help you make sure that answer remains yes!

Sorry for the multiple videos, but definitely watch them with the article!

18 Things I wish I had Known Before I Started Weight Training

Recently I answered a question on Quora about Things I wish I had known before I started Weight Lifting and it got me thinking. This lead me to writing down a list of all of the things that I wish I had known before I started weight training, most of which I had to learn the hard way due to either misinformation or a few training gurus giving "hardcore" advice that just doesn't actually help.

So without further ado, here's what I wish I had known before I started weight training that would have saved me years of spinning my wheels! I hope that this list can help you avoid doing the same.

The Difference Strength can Make

If you ask people who are fit, or are in the fitness industry, they all have an interesting story to tell. You'll find that a lot of people started off in a bad place, a place of fear, or weakness. This is important for the casual observer, or the person who is looking to getting fit to understand: very few people started their fitness journey from an already good/great position in fitness, life, health, or mental health.

This brings me to the topic of the day. The difference that strength can make in your life.
