…A moment of self indulgence. Not Mindless Self Indulgence…Just regular self indulgence.
My name is Warren Piece and I believe in fitness.
I love the motivational fitness Facebook pages. I really do. I love the twinges and tingles it gives me to read then and check out the pics during the day and rageface at night when I get home.
I’m at a point in my life where I have time. Time is something I never had a lot of. At the moment, in the evenings I have time.
I am going to make the best use of it and really take my level of fitness to the next level. I’m going to be the strongest I’ve ever been, the fastest and the healthiest.
I am doing it for me.
But, I’m also doing it to create a relate-able sequence of events that I can use to motivate people. To go from a clearly established starting point and progress to a point; not even visible from that starting point.
I’m already in pretty good shape – I can bang out a 30 pull-up set, run 3 miles in 20 min and one rep bench 1.5x my body weight.
But, the beauty of still being alive is that if you’re willing to put in the work, you can always be better. So long as we’re sucking air…we have the option to keep fighting.
I think the gym is a sanctuary. It’s a place where you can confront your weakest self, and find your strongest self. The weight doesn’t move itself. You move it. Muscles don’t grow on their own. You flex and build them. With enough determination you can lift any weight.
There are a couple of great little quips out there that I really enjoy and they are applicable to all kind of things:
- Today they ask why, later they’ll ask how.
- No Regrets, Only Forward
- A year from now you’ll wish you’d started today.
Just a couple of words of encouragement.
Be the best you, today. Don’t Stop. We need you now more than ever.
