November 12, 2004

Today is my 45th birthday.  I celebrated by pumping some iron* for a couple of hours.  It has been a day of reflection...a sort of crossroads in life if you will.  What you see above is just straight up hard core fitness and what is becoming decades of living for Wellness.  No gimmicks or enhancement drugs. I train. Hard. Year after year.  Period.

I've had a lot of critics in my life...what an understatement.  It's funny--while they make fun of me and criticize my work I keep kicking ass.  I work hard.  I have a very blue-collar approach to fitness.  It's hard work day after day but I get 'er done because that's what I do.  I know how to train and don't waste time with anything that is not productive. Others can say whatever, but I don't see their asses doing my kind of workouts.  I don't screw around--I get after it with time-efficient and high-performance workouts.  I hang out with fitness warriors that push me to be my best.  There's no time for whining when your buddy is driving you by the ankles up the stadium stairs like a wheelbarrow while you hand walk until you feel like you're going to fall on your face--and this is how we FINISH a hard workout! God I love these guys!

I'm glad I have my health and can experience the BEST in life through fitness and movement.  I'm sad so many Americans are their own worst health enemies as they do everything possible to destroy themselves with junk food and slothful living--so be it.  For those that want to sabotage their health...oh well.  For those that want something better--get up and kick yourself in the butt every morning so you move into action.  Jack LaLanne has it right, "Inactivity is the essence of decay."  I worked on rejuvenation today--not decay! I'm a fitness warrior and can prove it anywhere, anytime, with anyone.  I can be gentle enough to work with small children on fitness or seniors that can barely walk.  I'm also vicious when it comes to making a stand for quality fitness.  No apologies.  Just competition-proven results. 

Say what you want.  Will I see you in the gyms of America? In the parks doing a body weight workout? On the roads cycling? Say hi...then we'll get after it...or you can move out of my way while I get it on.
