Let’s be honest here… being ripped is kind of badass, it feels amazing, and it is a massive boost to one’s confidence. I know, I’ve been slightly ripped before.
However, it is a lifestyle that not everyone participates in so unless you surround yourself with like-minded humans leading parallel lifestyles, your newfound badassness will likely fall by the wayside. Not everyone can stick to their guns for the sake of their guns and unless you are genetically blessed, you need to completely change your life in order to sustain a ripped physique.
First and foremost it is imperative to clarify the following; “Fit” is not an adjective—”Fit” is a verb
How you look is not an indication of how fit you are and how “fit” you are is pretty subjective.
It’s highly unlikely that a 300lb Strongman would be able to run a 5-minute mile, nor will a 160lb Ironman be able to pull a 900lb deadlift. Both of said athletes eat in very different ways—neither of which are conducive to weight-loss or translate as “healthy” for most normal(ish) folk. They eat to fuel their bodies in order to perform better at very specific sports.
If your life looks more like desk surfing, baby (or fur-baby) chasing, and domestic duties, you likely don’t have a need to train or eat the way most athletes do.
What most people need is much more simple (not to be confused with easy) and way less sexy than what we are accustomed to seeing on YouTube, TV, blog posts, Facebook, Instagram, and a million other force-fed advertisements. When you shift your focus from flashy, badass and “sexy” to health, wellness, self-preservation, and balance, you arrive at something way more sustainable and realistic. Self-preservation is a different kind of badass—it’s less about aesthetics and ego and more about being humble, happy and healthy.

Many of us go through life with the mindset of “when I achieve this, everything will be ok” or “when I have this, I will be happy”…” when I lose 20lbs I will feel good”.
The fact of the matter is, sometimes life and its circumstances can be pretty lackluster. We spent a lot of time in the mud, and that’s how it goes. But regardless of one’s circumstances, it is possible to grow, shine and even THRIVE in the midst of the most unfavorable situations.
It’s all about your perspective! If you are stuck in the mud, it’s time to rise up and bloom!
Simply put, it’s hard to see yourself clearly from your own eyes. We all need clarity and perspective at different points in our lives—why not hire an experienced, unbiased professional to provide you with the focus, clarity, and direction you need to lead a more prosperous and fulfilling life?
Focus is critical in reaching your life goals, and it’s all too easy to get distracted by the next shiny object commanding your valuable time and attention. Shiny does not always equate to happy–having someone help you to keep your eyes on the prize is essential to achieving your goals.
Clarity is grossly underrated. Quite frankly, most people have no clue what they want from life and often when said people achieve what they genuinely believe is wanted and needed they find it wasn’t as fulfilling as one had hoped. A coach is there to inspire you to examine your life and determine the things that mean the most to you and guide you along your journey to actualizing your vision.
Direction is imperative! Think of a coach as the equivalent to Google Maps. Having that kind of direction opens up endless possibilities that you never knew existed.
You are only blessed with one life, why not make it a truly amazing experience.
