It’s all about the JOURNEY!

Posted on

Anyone that knows me, knows one of my personal missions in life, and one of the core missions of Training For Warriors, is to “Save Lives”. I want to help people live longer and better!

My latest goal is to start writing about our INCREDIBLE students at TFW Greensboro. Each and every one of them have a special story and inspires others just because they are taking on great challenge and change with their training and lives. The truth is that so many people are scared of exercise and really don’t understand our message and what separates us from other training programs.

Today, I’d like to share one of those stories. Steve Johnson has only been with our program for 6 months, but he has gained SO much in a short time! Maybe his story will sound familiar.

1. What were some of your struggles before you came to TFW Greensboro?
Getting up and doing the workout – or otherwise making it a priority in my day, dedicate time to do it. , knowing WHAT to do to maximize my results from my efforts, and understanding how to eat.

2. What made you reach out to TFW Greensboro?
The gym I was attending closed. But I wasn’t sure at the beginning – my old gym was really just a loose collection of guys that got together 3 days a week to workout with a trainer… limited access to equipment (no free weights) and no motivation or other ways to manage progress. TFW was an entirely different experience that I wouldn’t change.

3. What are some of the significant results you’ve gotten since training at TFW Greensboro?
Oh good lord, where do I start? Better fitness consistency, stronger, smaller clothes, new friends, friendly competition, common goals with new friends, respect for others’ goals/struggles/successes, better diet, better understanding of how lifestyle and diet affects results, desire to keep going even when it’s hard.

4. What are the top 3 tips that helped you transform?
1) Be consistent on training but diverse in method,
2) learn how to fuel myself,
3) be surrounded by team members who are going through the same thing I am.

Are you are WORRIER or a WARRIOR?

Posted on

The way I see it, you have already survived the worst day of your life! You have endured the worst thing that has happened to you so far. The sooner you recognize that, the sooner you will take on life’s next great challenge with confidence and strength.

When I got into the fitness industry back in 1998, I knew I wanted to help people…but I didn’t quite understand the magnitude of what my mission was, nor what being a “warrior” really meant. As I began making a positive impact on lives, the most profound message that would come back to me was not how grateful my clients were that I had helped them shed a few pounds or get physically stronger. Over and over, it was about overcoming a great obstacle, helping them face a demon, and empowering them to do things they never thought possible. I realized then that the training goes far beyond the workouts. That’s exactly why I adopted the Training for Warriors program 2013! The mission & core values of TFW are parallel to mine. The only difference is that now I can have a bigger impact on the world!

This brings me to the question: Are you a worrier or a warrior?

You see, we all are one of the two. And sometimes we have been BOTH…but never at the same time.

WORRIERS tend to move slowly through life filled with anxiety and caution, anticipating what could go wrong.  WARRIORS are ready for anything, focused on how they will overcome any obstacles that come their way. Instead of spending time worrying about all of the things that might happen, or allowing yourself to be buried beneath the rubble of what has happened, remind yourself that you can do ANYTHING! You are a WARRIOR, you just need to bring out your WARRIOR WITHIN!

Here are a few things you can do to immediately start bringing out your WARRIOR WITHIN:

  • Surround yourself with others on the same mission as you! Studies show that people go further and accomplish greater things when they are part of a group. Whether it’s group training, a mentorship, a study group, etc., as a group you can take on greater challenges.
  • Every setback is a chance for a COME BACK! Failure is inevitable. We will all be knocked down in life, but we can’t let ourselves stay down. Some of the greatest achievements in the world are the result of many failures. Let each setback be an opportunity to learn, grow and COME BACK stronger than before!
  • “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right!” Great quote from Henry Ford. The mind is a powerful tool, and we often use it against ourselves because we don’t believe. Think about all the times you have given up and said “I can’t.” Well, my motto is this: The only way you can use the word “can’t” is if you attach the word “YET” to it!
  • Never give up! There will be days you feel like quitting, but you can’t! Remember that everything counts, and every small step makes a difference. Some days you will make more progress than others, but try not to let the days when you take a step backwards throw you completely off course. It happens; accept it as part of the journey and keep moving!
