The other day I went out to walk my dog around the neighborhood, as I am wont to do. It being early April the signs of incipient spring were very apparent: crocuses, buds, warmer air, the last piles of snow under the shrubberies gone, landscaping trucks dotting the roads, and more people out walking. One of the nice things about walking is not just where the legs take you, but where the mind goes. In this case I was thinking about my college days at a school in a highly urban environment, and the prodigious amount of walking I did.

This blog post has been rolling around in my head since January. Every time I decided it was time to sit down and finally put it on paper, something else would come up and I would put it on the back burner. It's not like that "something else" was always important, unless one considers finishing the fifth season of Dexter really important. It was just that, in that moment, I lost the motivation to write.The Hard Truth

Over the years that I have spent since my life changing event of blowing out my knee, and realizing what it means to truly be hurt and know your weaknesses. This event in my life taught me how much of a challenge it is to get back on your feet after life has knocked you down and knocked you out.  The big question is, "Do you want it bad enough?"  As Rocky said, "...But it aint about how hard you're hit.  It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.  How much can you take and keep moving forward?

I feel that for any person in an educational or coaching type of work should practice what they preach.  I'm sure that we've all heard someone who had been a mentor to us (in the fitness profession) or have read this in a book.  How many of you actually do it though?  What I mean by that is if you're coaching a marathon runner, how many of you fitness professionals have actually been through a training program specific to a running race?  What about training a powerlifter?

You've seen it all before: A friend or family member is getting a little chunky. You mention that perhaps they should take up an exercise regimen. The most common answer: "I would, but I just don't have the time." This isn't just speculation. According to a study done by Sallis et.

Many affiliate exercise with stereotypical associations encouraged or identified by sciences and society. Science, gyms, disease risk, aesthetic appeal, health and wellness, medicine, and the like. Yet it is less than often that people look at exercise as achieving a higher level of thought. Yes, I am talking about exercise philosophy. Now, I’m not saying people do not think, or that achieving a higher perspective of the self has no been present in the likeness of yoga or tai chi, but society does not associate exercise with experiencing deep thought.

Mark your workouts on your calendar. They are one of the most important appointments you could keep! Don’t skip your pre-paid classes or the gym you’re paying for every month. Think of the money you’re wasting! Avoid winter blues/ depression. When you exercise your body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins make you feel good.
