Exercise Philosophy

Life has a funny way of placing us in situations that force us to our limits. However, it’s what we achieve PAST these limits that determines our own personal growth. In the moments when we feel like quitting, like giving up and throwing in the towel, and yet, find it within ourselves to somehow push through; THAT’s where the REAL growth happens. Like my track coach used to say, It never gets easier, you just get stronger.

“No pressure, No diamonds.” -Thomas Carlyle
