TJ's Gym Weekly News 12/11/2017


 Message from TJ:


There are so many blogs, vlogs, and memes with platitudes telling you to ignore what "they" are saying and "trust yourself" and "use the haters to fuel you" and whatever other popcorn garbage is thrown at people to motivate or inspire. It's cheap rocket fuel that works until it doesn't, and then in most cases, it ends up blowing you up.

My skill set of helping people grow comes mostly from the success and failures that I have experienced, myself.  I use my own story to help others reach their goals.

My anger and humor as a young man moved me forward, but when these faltered, I grew into realizing that hustle and hard work would take me to the next level.  Still, a little dose of unhealthy rage would creep in from time to time.

When I realized that combination of fuel was unsustainable, I checked my toolbox and realized there wasn't much left, which left me in a bit of a free fall at one point. Fortunately, I hit some branches on the way down and realized that those branches were there to slow my fall and actually help me, even if they hurt a bit, too.

Eventually, I started the process of climbing those same branches and spending some time on each one to study its message.  Some of those messages were painful, but when I realized the messages were honest and not meant to pin me down, I was able to start climbing to the next level, accepting my own limitations and receiving the help I needed.

I encourage my clients (and friends) to embrace a journey built on acceptance.  It's critical to be able to accept that sometimes you don't have the answers, but there are others who want to help and have the ability to help.  That's why we are here. Just reach out.

STRONGMAN Seminar 2.0 with Arielle was a great success.

Stay tuned for more opportunities in 2018 to work with Arielle.  

It was a small crew, given the busy time of year, but we had a fun day playing with new things and learning how to work with some of the equipment we have at the gyms.  The more tools in your tool box the better!
