The Cost of Excellence

Intensity, in theory, is simple. In practice, however, we seem to have escaped it. This very life and breath of fitness has been watered down in our community where we once embraced it and we have diluted a thing so potent in it’s effect in order to produce the thing that sells. We are a culture who wants more. We sacrifice quality and we hack at the corners of so much that is good in the name of creating More. More is attractive, More is marketable, More sells.

Learn to refuse

I am a single father raising a 12 year old girl. I often make fun of the situation, but the truth is that she is so easy to deal with. She is the sweetest thing you have ever met.
