I guess I should probably create a “first-post” post. There’s a lot of information in the world. I think that approximately 83.7% of the information available to us on the internet is bad fitness information. If you have to pay for it, it’s probably a scam. If it’s free, it’s probably not worth anything. If it promises you that you’ll have ginormous biceps or a bangin’ booty in 4 weeks and you believe it, you probably need to get your head checked.
It’s not secret that there’s a lot of B.S. out there (and that doesn’t stand for Bachelor of Science, although there are a lot of those nowadays too). But I’m telling you to take charge of your life, right now. You can’t always control your work, your school, your friends, or your family, but you can always control how you take care of your body. And you only get one of them, so you better take care of it. Start right now. Make a goal. Big or small, it doesn’t matter. Decide how you want to feel or look or perform and start your journey today. Make a goal every month along the way. Do your own research. There are seven billion people on Earth; chances are that someone else shares your desire and drive to reach that exact same goal. Find those people. Read what they’ve written and listen to what they’ve said.
I’m hesitant to use the word fitness. I don’t want to be grouped with other fitness people. A true commitment to your fitness goal, whatever that may be, is life, not just fitness. “I’m into fitness” is something that people say when they want others to listen to their stories about their fitness accomplishments. Don’t be that guy (or girl). Set a goal. Reach it. Rinse and repeat. Find out what other peoples’ goals are and encourage them along the way.
If you’re already on your journey and are just looking for information, this is a good place to start. I won’t even try and convince you to raw powerlift. But if you’re reading this right now, start by thinking of a goal. You can’t get somewhere when you don’t know where you’re going.
