As i grew up, i was training gymnastics. Six days a week, three hours every training. I did this from when i was 6 to i was 15. When that career ended abruptly and i began playing music every day with my bands, i had some time away from training, i had grown to hate training, it was like a job for me after been doing gymnastics for so long. When i was around 16-17, my dad took me to the gym one day, and that opened my eyes to a whole new world of training. Growing up i had a six pack and all that as a result of all the physical training from gymnastics, so when i started to lift weights i had a natural genetic gift for building muscles very fast. I trained on and off for many years, going to lift weights was fun and training became something i grew to love. I have been trough it all when it comes to body building. I have to admit i never have competed, but i have done the steroids, the supplements, the calorie overload, you name it. My dad being a bodybuilder also has been giving me great insights in how training, and especially body fixation affects the mind and changes the person who has it. I have been addicted to bodybuilding as well, so i have my own story there. And yes, the biggest problem today is that people are given a twisted introduction to exercise, also the media that is painting a picture of how you can look if doing “this and that”, it is all bullshit and steroids, never read those gym magazines!
After i started to become involved with Stewart and Janet here at Expansions, i had a problem with my view on training and exercise, it felt very animalistic and “low level”. However, as my personal growth and spiritual connection has reach greater depth, so has my relationship to training. Now days, I absolutely love to train, it is the high point of my day. For me training has given me so much i never intended to get in the first place, here is a list of what physical exercise can do for you:
*Build your mental toughness, this can be utilized in everything you do.
*Build the strongest vehicle possible for your mind to thrive in, you deserve perfect health.
*Build your goals and begin training to achieve them, this can be transferred to any desires you have.
*Build your confidence, who says you can’t have a fit body just because it isn’t right now, let me help you!
*Build a sense of purpose, having a training schedule makes you have something to thrive for.
*Build your arrogance towards limits, you have no idea what an amazing machine your body is, it can do more than you limit it to do.
Today my knowledge also include endurance training and more of a performance type of philosophy. I know it may seem unreachable for you to become one of those annoying people that train all the time, but it is actually easier than you think. Training is easy, results are guaranteed, how many things can relate to that? I challenge you to take control, and spend 20-30 minutes on yourself, everyday. If you are more advanced, set a goal, run 10k, do 10 pull ups, lose weight, the important thing is that you are MOVING. I hope after you read this, that you write a comment below and tell me what training you do, or want to begin doing. I will give you feedback and tips for your progress.
