Wise words from my favorite #ninjaturtle. Its never about the goal but rather the journey. The view on top of the mountain is great but what makes you stronger is the climb. This weekend at #Spartanrace #Beast I saw thousands making the climb. I saw elites pushing their limits and the “average” and even moreso the “got no business” folk climbing the same mountain. Different levels but everyone walked away with the same lessons. The #mountain was a great teacher. Everyone walked away with life lessons because at the end of the day everyone left with stronger resolve and desire for improvement and moreso for those of us who “failed”. Because theres no such thing as failure. Only lessons. Learn from lifes mountains. #climb #rise #motivation #motivate #motivationmonday #allmental #allheart #life #ocr #spartan #risefitclub #tbb #sisu #boocr #trvlsqd #teambeachbody #push #dfq #grt #goruck #wtm #mudder #strength #resolve #focus #mindset

These weekly climbing sessions with @risefitclub at @njrockgym have become my favorite part of the week. Got to try #toproping thanks to our fellow #spartan Joe. Definitely going for that #belaying certification so this can be a regular workout. #Bouldering, you’re fun but I just love heights #livedangerously #risefitclub #nerdfit #rockclimbing #njrockgym #girlswithshavedheads

Just being #Dino Mike. See what I did there. Great session tonight. Solved that darn red route and pink overhang as a bonus! #boulder problems #bouldering #climblife #njrockgym #climb #grip #fly #workout #sweat #fun #risefitclub

Your immediate comfort is a small price to pay for more time with your loved ones, confident self image, and less money spent on medications/prescriptions/comfort food. Think about that next time you’re faced with a health decision whether it be what you are about to eat or some physical activity. Heathy lifestyles will improve your life in ways youre not thinking about and that stems from the small decision you are always making. Ditch immediate gratification and step out of your comfort zone. Your friends and family will appreciate it. If you dont think so think about someone you lost and ask yourself how much 1 more day with them is worth. Focus on health and it will add those days to YOUR life. #dontbeselfish #motivation #motivate #lifestyle #health #mindset #fitness #mondaymotivation #fit #noexcuses #effort #improve #work #workout #risefitclub #tbb #coach

Yesterday I was support crew on the #mountain for @alixsparrow11 and got a cool.medal closing out my #trifecta for it! I watched her battle through the toughest, longest #ocr event ive done next to #wtm. And it was truly a fight. We fought the mountain like warrior poets and won our freedom…oh wait

Protip: do not bring your coach through the hardest sprint super and at the Beast of Beasts expect to not be pushed to the brink. Blisters be damned. Cramps be damnd. Excuses be damned. Theres no crying in baseball and theres no crying at the Beast…well I forgot salt/mustard so I cried a little lol

Today I am support crew again!.this time for my @risefitclub brother Havoc. #spartantrifecta status is upon him as well (2/3 just needs a Super)

Cant wait to see everyone again on the mountain…

Oh and thanks #corepower for the sponsorship. Best protein drink ive had and great ingredients. #aroo #ocr #spartanrace #spartan #risefitclub #overcome #rise #spartantrifecta

#TBT sometimes its not about seeing is believing. Its about being is believing. Behave as if you already reached your goal because the moment you believe it is the moment it happens….reality just has to catch up with you.

We all have beginnings. Dont stay there. Mine was looking down the barrel of heart disease. Couldnt run a quarter.mile with without stopping multiple times. Couldnt do 5 pullups. 15 pushups was a test. 10 jumping jacks and I was winded. Bad shape bad mentality. No energy. Always tired. Since then…10+ #ToughMudder, 2 #WTM, 10+ #Goruck events including a Heavy and an HZL, about to get my #Spartan Trifecta. Im aging but im not getting older.

Dont wait to die. Participate in #life. #motivation #doordie #tbb #teambeachbody #coach #risefitclub #rise #body #throwback #physique #transformation #beforeafter #fitness #fit #health #mindset #goals #progress #results #motivate

The #trailtotrifecta (Tuxedo Sprint and Mt Creek Super) ends at the #Spartan #Beast World Championship! That course was no joke. 14 miles…yea try 18. And that elevation. Hit he summit a few times straight from the bottom. I saw alot of people fighting out there. People who “had no business” doing this event. People who dont care what “they” say and still drive forward. #Winners were all over that mountain. Proud to join the #TrifectaTribe #spartanrace #aroo #ocr #obstaclecourse #mtsnow #killington #mountain #motivation #risefitclub #limitbreakers

I like versatility and im curious so I’ve done all these. Now I mix them up based on my goals/events. Here’s my breakdown:

#Insanity - my first. Great to shred and for cardio

#Asylum - like Insanity but more geared on athletic training

#TaiCheng - TaiChi inspired great for mobility super low impact

#P90X - amazing for foundational fitness

#P90X2 - Goto for athletic improvement

#P90X3 - 30min workouts straight to the point and effective

#BodyBeast - mass building

#T25 - 25min 5 days a week good to drop weight and fit into schedule

#lesmillscombat - super fun mma inspired. Core killer

#lesmillspump - 800 reps in one session. Shred and build lean muscle.

Just simple dvds huh? These are tools rooted in science and test groups and real world application. Paint brushes dont paint masterpieces. Artists do. Learn your craft. Learn to use your tools. Results will manifest like you wont believe. If you cant self study get a tutor. Theyre called #beachbody coaches. #payitforward #exercise + #nutrition + #support. Thats the model. #coachsummit next week! #allmental #fitness #health #risefitclub #workout #sweat #tbb

Captains log. Star date 092014. 4200 feet up. #elevationmask is a dumb idea. Doing this while on shark week for females is a dumb idea. Doing this with pre existing blisters is a dumb idea. 7 more miles until victory and loving dumb ideas. #spartanrace #beast #spartan #ocr #obstaclecourse #trailtotrifecta #itcanalwaysbeworse #icabw #risefitclub #bane #nerd #fun

All these #Goruck and #Spartanrace events have me either tapering or recovering during the week for the past 3 weeks or so. Couldnt take it anymore especially in a quiet house. Had to get some #BodyBeast in. #Spartan #Beast im coming for you. See you in a few days Vermont. #workout #sweat #dontgetbored #weirdo #accountability #tbb #coach #risefitclub #chestday #body #fit #work #ocr #grt
