n today’s world if you train like a warrior, flex your discipline when it comes to your diet, and pass on grazing on donuts in the break room at work chances are you are chided on some level by those around as being weird. Get used to it. Embrace the smell of your sweaty socks. Not many people make a daily practice out of pushing themselves beyond their comfort zones for 12-15 minutes a day. Not many people step out of what is comfortable for themselves period. This is a niche movement. Not everyone will get why you train this way or why you train at all. Thankfully we don’t need anyones permission or approval, and if we are looking for support we have a place to go where people get it. Being weird requires a good measure of independence, and a certain amount of self reliance. Most of us can only benefit from developing these traits because along with a dash of perseverance they empower us with the fortitude to persue our dreams. Is this really about fitness? Not always – but won’t it be nice not to be winded after you chase down your dreams?
