Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet

I've come to the conclusion that as an athlete grows tougher in the gym, he or she grows a heart that becomes softer. I know it because I've felt it and seen it time and again.

Kiley’s Then and Now

This week's Then and Now has been my very most favorite of science experiments. All the experts say that weight training, combined with healthy eating will NOT make a woman "bulky." But what about you ladies that have are "easy gainers"? Will heavy weights make you look overall bigger?

Here's the problem:
Just because it's hard doesn't mean it's effective. And just because it's fun doesn't mean it will get you what you want.

Christian’s Then and Now

“Tribe looks at a person's physique and fitness, something that has been twisted by popular media into what outer beauty ‘should’ look like, and uses these aspects of a person's life to grow their self-love, confidence, bravery, kindness.”

Scene: 1986.
Ya girl workin' that skating rink with a fresh spiral perm and enough hairspray on her bangs to withstand the strongest of Oklahoma winds. And that was probably the last time I set these feet ta rollin' until last night.

Not Just A Workout

I know some of you (us) didn't PR today.... hell I didn't even come close. And to tell you the truth, once I managed "this season's" PR, I decided it was okay.

Little But Big. But Little.

There was a little-ish boy in our gym yesterday... he was probably nine or 10 years old. He came with his dad to our recess class, which tends to be packed out with both men and women.... many of who just so happen to be plain ol' grown-ups turned bad asses.

#truthtalk

I know this for sure: If you're hitting new numbers or learning new skills, it has more to do with consistency than just about anything else. And for that, I'd like to extend a sincere congratulations. You have PR'd your "show the hell up."

Karen’s Then and Now

“You don't have to be a certain body type, or weigh a certain weight, or have a certain BMI, or even be at a certain fitness level. You just have to start. Go. Find your passion.”
