“If you always put limits on everything you do,physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” -Bruce Lee
I post a lot of videos of the people that make this gym possible because I think it is important to show them off. I think it is important to let the people that ask them “Why do you never want to come out with us” know that they come in and bust their ass and work unbelievably hard to gain a couple pounds here and there and sometimes they just need to go home and eat and sleep. I want to do something different and post a spreadsheet of the changes and pounds that they have put on the bar so that if you are unfamiliar with the weights in the gym, you can see some numbers and really grasp how hard they have worked.
They did not do anything out of the ordinary, they did not take any magical supplement. They came in a couple of times a week (between 3 and 5), they busted ass while they were in here, they went home and ate a nice balanced diet (although pizza usually makes it into the diet every now and again), and they did not let small injuries and mindsets hold them back from accomplishing what they wanted to in the 9 week program. They are a shining example of what you can do if you want something bad enough and find a place that will amplify that attitude toward greatness.
Note: Most of the strength athletes we have are female. They did not get bulky, most actually lost weight. On top of that, they became strong and confident. Aches and pains went away and were replaced with strong lower backs and power house legs.
Check it out and next time you see them give them a high five or a PR donut for all of their hard work! Remember, we all start out as beginners, so if you are at all interested, come check out the gym and start your journey to a strong, healthy life!
