Maybe, I’m wrong. It happens from time to time.

Weekly Workout for Men: Making Fitness a part of your life doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice something, instead, you will have time for so much more.

When I first started exercising consistently about 7 years ago, I didn't think that I had time to do it. I'm sure that I am not alone.

In fact, it seems to be one of the biggest reasons why most people do not continue with a workout routine for any length of time. There are other contributing factors, but this seems to be the one that comes up mostly in conversation.

Weekly Workout: Kettlebells, Rucking, and just generally slaying the giants in your way

Weekly Workout: Kettlebells, Rucking, and just generally slaying the giants in your way

On Wednesday morning, I didn't want to get out of bed. 

The alarm clock went off at 4:05 am, which is what I set it at every day. I lay there in my bed thinking about how tired I was, and how I could get 2 more hours of sleep before I had to get ready to leave for work if I wanted to.

Then, my inner voice took over. It said that I needed to get up because I was only cheating myself. It was telling me that I was going to feel miserable all day if I didn't get up and get my workout in, and do my morning routine. I knew this inner voice was right. Who was I trying to fool?

Weekly Workout: A couple women, Rucking, Bench Press, Double under and Hang Cleans.

Most people make fitness far more difficult than it needs to be. It’s a lifestyle, a marathon so to speak. Unfortunately, a lot of people have turned it into something it isn’t, and they prey on peoples insecurities to sell them a product.

GORUCK Tough Challenge: Learn how to train, how to pack, and what you can expect to experience during the event

GORUCK Tough Challenge: Learn how to train, how to pack, and what you can expect to experience during the event

In other words, you can't do it alone, there are no accolades, and you get to suffer.

Who wouldn't want to sign up?

The reality is that the GORUCK Challenge is one of the funnest and most fulfilling things that I have done. It reminded me a lot of those first few days at boot-camp. Everyone is disoriented the Cadre are shouting out commands, some guys have the deer in the headlights look, it's chaos.

When they don't  get the response they desire, then they punish the whole team.The whole event is designed to do one thing. Take a huge group of people from all walks of life and have them go from not knowing each other, to functioning as one unit.

It doesn't happen automatically, it takes a couple hours before everyone starts to see the big picture, and the cadre do a great job of channeling everyone in that direction.
