The Most Important Factor In Your Training Is You

This video was recently sent to me. It is pretty simple, doesn’t show us anything we don’t see on a regular basis if we watch sports at all, but as a whole and considering the title can be viewed as profound. The title is “Everything You Need is Already Inside”. Yep, that’s right. You are already fully equipped to train to your full capacity.

I am truly privileged that I get to watch people achieving goals every day. I have seen countless people meet long standing goals. And many achieve well beyond what they thought was possible. We at The Cave provide a facility well suited to train, a focus for a community to gather around and inspire each other and a staff that dedicates all of their time to learn how to optimize training. Even with all of that, all you really need is you. You just need to make a decision.

Are you going to decide to get in and train more days than not. Are you going to choose to eat foods that help you, and avoid foods that hinder you. Are you going to make good choices about your schedule and sleep that will keep you progressing physically, cognitively and professionally. We make thousands of little choices every day. Each one takes us in a direction. Where are you headed?

You have what it takes to make astounding progress. You can new learn new skills daily. You can move better. You can be stronger. You can be faster. You can adjust your habits for the better. None of this stuff is easy. Making these things happen almost always involves a lifestyle change. It takes doing things counter to the culture around you. It takes ignoring the marketing hype telling you that you can “eat what you want, workout 30 minutes/month and achieve the perfect body”. Make the hard decisions. Take the next step.¬†Everything You Need is Already Inside.

    Everything you need is already inside you, yes. Without people around you to support you, however, it is 100 times more difficult to make changes. This is where the people and the trainers at The Cave really come in to play. The support from fellow members and from the trainers is unlike anything I have experienced elsewhere. Thank you!!
