Stop Making Excuses

We all encounter struggles throughout the endeavors of our lives, but there are those who refuse to accept the limitations put on them by the world. As trainers we regularly encounter capable people that simply don't believe in their own potential because of any number of reasons. I'm too fat. I'm too short. I'm too old. I'm too busy. I'm not strong enough. These excuses aren't limited to people looking to get back into shape, they can manifest themselves in the workplace, in our marriages, our hobbies, our dreams, and our spiritual lives. Listen to the fellas share a little of their own stories of failure, redemption, and an attempt to share what little wisdom we have collected in our journeys!

Josh breaks down his story from humble beginnings as a young personal trainer slaving away in gyms and health clubs, to now owning a gym with his wife Andi and also founding the nonprofit Strength for Life. Their story is a sobering reminder that the journey to achieving life goals takes real sacrifices, and requires us to lay down our time and freedoms along the way. Josh also shares many of the do's and don'ts he has learned as a business owner, and this episode is a must listen for those interested in personal training or any form of entrepreneurship to learn from somebody who has and is still pushing forward to achieve goals that have been set.

When Self-Improvement Becomes Self-Obsession

The fellas address an issue that must be addressed by coaches, athletes, and gym lovers at some point during their journey. When does self-improvement become destructive to ourselves and others around us? Why is it so easy to notice idolatry in others, but find it so easy to slip into ourselves? Self-discipline itself can become a source for our own pride, vanity, and be used as an excuse to hold others in contempt. Listen to the boys break down this "hits close to home" topic and much more!

Blake Kasper Pt.2

First off we'd like to thank you all for your patience, if you don't follow our social media, our equipment had been messing up which caused us not to be able to release last week. We are still working out some kinks so this is our episode from last week that ended up being cut short due to a malfunction, but the gospel was coming through so well we had to keep it in. So this is a mash up of the original Pt.2 with a finishing thought from Riley and Blake. As always thank you for tuning in, we hope you enjoy!
