No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.

Socrates

It is frustrating to work with people who are amateurs in physical training. Our bodies are incredible vessels. The better we treat it, the better our brains operate. We can operate at a higher frequency the better we condition ourselves. Strength is cool. Weakness is a disease. It’s not cool to be weak. Get off your ass and be a person of strength. Don’t be the person who brings the group down because of your inadequacy. We all have the voice inside ourselves telling us to stop; the strong don’t listen to it.

I tell my kids, what is the difference between a hero and a coward? What is the difference between being yellow and being brave? No difference. Only what you do. They both feel the same. They both fear dying and getting hurt. The man who is yellow refuses to face up to what he’s got to face. The hero is more disciplined and he fights those feelings off and he does what he has to do. But they both feel the same, the hero and the coward. People who watch you judge you on what you do, not how you fee.
