1. Fitness should be a top priority in your life, right up there with Family, God, and service to your country/community. Training at Revelation Strength will be a struggle if this is not the case. Having fitness as a priority is more important than why it is a priority.
2. Excellence. Strive for it. Be it.
3. Everyone is an athlete. People were made to move. It’s part of being a whole person, and people with mobility difficulties or categorize themselves as “unathletic” should pay particular attention.
4. The quickest way to see what a person is made of mentally and emotionally is to break them down physically. It doesn’t matter if you break down 80 miles into an ultra-marathon or walking to the garage. How you handle the situation speaks volumes about your character. Physical struggle develops personality traits that can be effectively applied to other areas of life.
5. A better athlete = a better life. Some people are chasing functional dominance of their environment (Military, Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue) while others are chasing functional competence in their environment (Lawn mowing, picking up grandkids, getting out of a chair). Life requires you to sit, stand, push, pull, and sometimes carry heavy stuff or run. Improved athleticism allows you to perform physical activities easier and reduces the chances of injury.
6. What you do at the dinner table is more important than what you do in the gym. Most people are much less aware of how to fuel their body than they are about how to train it, and should emphasize proper fueling. View your food as medicine.
