Somewhere out there is a woman with twice my dedication and passion waking up at 4 am to get her workout done before working a 10-12 hour shift. She's got 2 gym outfits that are hanging on by the last thread, worn down tennis shoes that lacked support even when they were brand new, and a gym with one-tenth of the equipment my million dollar gym has.
Somewhere out there are thousands of other single moms who lack the support of their children's fathers and struggle financially to make ends meet while working 2-3 jobs. Those moms can't find the time to schedule their long-overdue yearly medical exam, much less spend 2-3 hours a day at the gym weight training. I am fortunate to even have the time to improve my body.
Somewhere out there someone always has a situation more heartbreaking and more difficult than yours. Medical issues that would horrify you, life stories that would give you nightmares, and environmental circumstances that are nearly impossible to surmount. To be physically able, economically capable, and logistically able to weightlift is a blessing and a privilege. If you're even able to step foot in the gym, it's an honor and shouldn't be taken for granted no matter where you're at in your fitness journey.

Throwback to one of my first ever fitness videos with @kellysilvester
One of the nicest people I’ve worked with 💪🏽🔥
Well, officially half way through my first true bulk. It's definitely a love/hate relationship. It's been hard watching my body change, but also rewarding to see some of the gains and lift heavier than I ever have before. Also, don't mind eating all the things 😉
Diets about deadass 65% of it.
It makes for a great warm up to your workout. 😉
Not sure who made up this saying but, I’m here for it. 💞
I know it’s not Tuesday, but I’ve been feeling really good about the progress lately.
Wearing this shirt to the gym means something to me. It means I’m starting to get my confidence back to wear something like this and not be so incredibly self-conscious about my flawed stomach. It also means that I really need to do some laundry 🙄
I’d love to say the hangover is from a night of partying.......but that would be a lie. It’s from scotch and loneliness 😫😫😫
The beach was pretty nice this morning. Good running weather!!
Нет прекрасной поверхности без ужасной глубины. 🤔
Почему человек бедный? Потому что дурак. А почему он дурак? Потому что бедный... 🤔
"Задрали цены!" и "Цены задрали!", это, как говорят в Одессе, никакой разницы. 🤔
Always gotta get some flex in your Friday
Существует приятное заблуждение, поощряемое формой нашей планеты, — что каждый человек находится на вершине мира. 😊
Kicking off a long few days with a back day
Хочешь узнать, что я о тебе думаю? Купи мне литр водки, садись поудобней и слушай... 😉
I love the cooler weather, and the clothes that I finally get to wear again. Still a northern guy at heart.
Море поет, волна зовет! А мы такие на работе... 🤔
Почаще заплывайте за буйки своих страхов и неуверенности, ведь прямо за ними вас ждет огромный, безбрежный океан новых целей, возможностей и достижений. 🤩
