The philosophy behind the fitness and a look into the EDF world.
Look: British soldiers from the Cheshire Regiment occupy a German trench during the Battle of the Somme (WW1).

Don’t look at life as something that happens to you, look at life as something that happens for you (credit to Tony Robbins for this concept).
Shift your mindset and re-frame your problems as challenges.
Challenges are blessings in disguise, as they give you a chance to learn, to grow, to become more resilient, and to become stronger.
Everyone has challenges. It’s how you view them and then handle them that counts.
Pain is inevitable.
The good news is that most times you can choose your pain, and you can choose “good” pain.
So the choice is yours…
Move your body, make better food choices, sleep better, and manage stress better.
Disease and death.
Why is an extremely important word.
Asking why (and sometimes asking why many times) reveals the true purpose and reason behind something.
Once this is revealed, you can decide if it’s really worth your time and money.
Yes, you should have clear-cut goals. Yes, most everything you do should have a purpose. And yes, you have to get serious to get anywhere.
But don’t forget to also make your training fun and enjoyable.
Otherwise, what’s the point?
I have a blast almost every time I train, and if I didn’t I probably wouldn’t do it!
The key is finding ways to make it fun and enjoyable while still smashing your goals.
Don’t get caught up thinking things need to be perfect to get started.
As a matter of fact, if you wait until things are perfect, you’ll be waiting forever.
Just go and do what you can with what you have.
