Nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. These are four main factors affecting our health day in and day out. Losing weight is like an iceberg. When you see an iceberg, you only see 10 percent. The rest is hidden below the surface. When people discuss losing weight or getting healthier, there is this idea that … Continue reading Your Health: Pay Now Or Pay Later
It’s funny how much difference a decade can make, 10 years ago I was just graduating chiropractic school, I hated CrossFit, I did mostly long endurance races, I was married, and I thought I knew more then than I think I know now. I regret none of the above, we have to live, we have to learn, we are meant to grow. Growth comes through struggle and failure. 5 years ago I was about to head into the busiest year of business I would have, my business would gross over $500k as a gym and chiropractic office. I wasn’t happy. Fast forward to 2016 and it’s all gone. I went from a gym of 225 members and a full schedule of chiropractic, training, and nutrition to zero. I started completely from scratch, I traveled all over western New York, I drove from Lewiston to East Aurora a couple times in a single day. I ran classes out of the back of sky zone in about a 250 sq ft area. Today, I never gave up. I kept building, grinding, doing the right things for the right people for the right reasons. I have a gym that is beginning to thrive in a reviving downtown Buffalo environment. From hating CrossFit to just getting my level 3, my 6th CrossFit course/cert. I have an awesome wonderful young boy who challenges me everyday, he is a driving force in my life. I have these people. My girlfriend, @emlor87 , she is a rock. She is amazingly strong physically and mentally. She truly is a fierce friend. I have never seen another person who has such tremendous compassion and love for her close friends. She is wildly intelligent, full of dark, dirty humor, and she is happy without me. She acts like a hard ass but secretly she wants to be snuggled and held. 😘 Mike and Mansi are two wonderful people that I have been fortunate to develop friendships with, always willing to provide advice acting as mentors, teammates, friends, and family. A decade is a long time. The days may be long but the weeks will go fast. One thing that has been consistent during this crazy decade is my desire to continue to help people. I am truly grateful for all the people who have been in, who are in, and will be in my life. Everyone of you have helped me, guided me, and have pushed me.
We think we really want it easy, we don’t. There is no satisfaction there, the rewards are not worthwhile, and we will feel vacuous. Effort, failure, effort, failure, regroup, struggle, fail, success is a much more satisfying path. My son has been commenting for the past four days about his pride in achieving the merit roll in his school. It’s his first year with all number grades, and he had been working diligently on his reading throughout the past summer and most of this school year. He keeps telling me he is proud of it, that he likes how it feels, and he wants to do better. If it just happened without effort or study he wouldn’t appreciate it. Much like if an athlete came into CrossFit and had no struggle, just walked in and could perform snatches, muscle ups, double unders, etc without struggle there is no appreciation. Struggle creates value, struggle creates reward. The effort needed to achieve correlated directly to the elation of success. Do not shy away from challenge or struggle, throw yourself headlong into it. Stay in it for a while. Get comfortable being uncomfortable, that is where growth and progress will be found. Not on the easy path. #cfqda #coach #personaltrainer #fitfam #motivation #inspiration #struggle #satisfaction #happiness #letsgo #improvedaily
