I have heard a lot of great leaders and coaches say that you have to, "buy in to the system" in order to be successful. Believe it or not they are not wrong. Believing in something has been proven to have positive effects on the believer. The problem today is that there are too many so called "leaders" "managers" and "coaches" using this term to coax individuals into performing tasks that are only beneficial to the leader and not the individual.
It was the middle of July in the sweltering, unforgiving Texas heat and my football coach was making the team run 200 meter sprint repeats at the END of practice. As you can imagine, we were all thrilled and no one complained at all.
There’ve been a few times (maybe more) when I’ve been shown up by a woman in the weight room. Rather than being embarrassed by this, this inspires me to work harder because let’s face it, most men don’t like losing to a woman.More and more women of today are mixing it up with the men in the weight room and are stepping away from the cardio machines. They’re also being celebrated for their athletic achievements on and off the field and not just for the way they look.
During the start of the New Year, a majority of people make resolutions about losing weight, eating better, and living a healthy lifestyle. Yet, still filled with good intentions, the month of January has come and gone, and you still haven't starting moving.

Keep Swinging for the Fence
I hope you all have been keeping fit throughout 2016. Now, if you are one of those people who wished they did more, for a myriad of reasons, you have tomorrow to start again!
Fortunately, there are a number of online tools, apps, and posts that can help you sort it all out. My favorite is working with certified coaches, or certified personal trainers (CPT). Additionally, for me as a CPT, I have been in the company of first rate pros. That usually leads directly to their Facebook (FB), App, or blog site.
