My depression in my early 20s was a result of me wanting more out of my life... so I pursued fitness.

... And it became the greatest decision I've ever made.

In this post, I will tell you why I believe Fitness is the Catalyst to YOUR greatest potential.

Let's explore this together.

Fitness Is Life

To start, I believe that fitness is the analogy to life itself.

If you follow us on Instagram, you know that I talk often about our logo, the phoenix.

The phoenix symbolizes death and renewal. It is a mythological figure that sacrifices in the present and is reborn anew, better than it once originally was.

This is us.

We sacrifice in the now to make gains in the future. Fitness is also the same. We go into the gym to tear our muscles, then we eat nutritiously so that they are reforged... bigger, stronger, and faster than they once were.

Fitness makes you face the reality that life is difficult. It's challenging. It's not fair. But that there's beauty in that struggle.

Because the transformation comes.

You are just going to have to make a couple of sacrifices to transform.

The Sacrifice

Fitness takes discipline. It takes big commitment to schedule 30-60+ minutes of your time a few times a week to work out.

This means there will be some sacrifice.

You will need a consistent sleep schedule.

You will need to eat more nutrient-dense foods.

You will need to go out less, because your body demands recovery.

The Transformation

As a result of sacrificing, you gain so much more overtime.

You start to see your muscles grow.

You start to lose body fat.

Your mood improves.

You sleep better.

You have a better outlook on life.

You start attracted more like-minded individuals who are changing their lives.

You get bolder. More confident.

You start taking more risks with opportunities for big rewards.

You start a business or enter a new job or career.

You demand more of yourself.

You become greater.

It's About Who You Could Become.

Just imagine what 3 months of proper training and nutrition can do for you.

You will embark on a journey of self-development of not just the physical... but of the mental.

Ultimately, you will see that life is not a matter of who you are now. It is a matter of who you could become.

Badass Goals: How To Dominate Your Fitness In 2021

I’ve had clients in the past tell me they wanted to lose an “x” amount of pounds in one month.

Why the one month?

“I just want it done quickly.”

This is understandable... I have been there. But I've always had bad experiences and problems with fitness goals like this.

They’re always outcome-based. High expectations with a probability that they might not be achieved or accomplished.

Things like “I need to drop 15lbs for my wedding in 2 weeks” are always things that people desire for just a specific moment in their life.

This is one of the reasons why I believe people fail.

We expect so much with our goals, but we don't have systems or processes to get to them.

We need to go beyond this with the formulation with the acceptance of a lifestyle change… and of what I like to call Badass Goals.
