Horrified, she stopped running, and has feared running ever since.
It sounds crazy! Men, women, kids, criminals, politicians — they all run. It’s an activity we see every day.
Yet Ashley’s story makes you wonder…

Working out sucks.
You’re so busy, so frazzled, so unmotivated that even the thought of working out feels like a ridiculously unfair burden.
It’s so tempting to toss the training and nutrition away, and be consumed by work, relationships, or Netflix on the couch. If you’re not seeing the results you want, it becomes even easier to throw in the towel. “I was going to be fat, anyway,” you tell yourself.

I almost got kicked in the face today
But before that, a little backstory.

Immediately I was triggered. Continue reading “Why Stretching is Hurting Your Gains”

You swore yourself off soda, but you can count how many hours it’s been since your last Coca Cola on one hand. You said you’d exercise more, and still your sneakers are as clean as when you bought them.
