Being Perfect

Perfectionism is not an attribute in my opinion so don't beat yourself up when you miss a few workouts or eat some Easter candy. The goal is to have far more good days than bad. Exercise for the joy of feeling good and getting better. Eat right with the intention of fueling your body with the things it needs to perform.

Hey Boys & Girls,

More and more people are discovering that Variety truly is the Spice of Fitness!

Multiple types of physical activity can be very humbling for people because it exposes our weaknesses - and most people don't like being/looking bad at anything. The commitment to exercise is hard enough and now I'm asking you to do pull-ups, jump-knee-tucks, throw punches and hold Warrior 3. "That's too hard!" This is why most people never leave the yoga studio, spinning class, get off the elliptical machine or attempt something other than their 3 mile run. As a "skills" based program P90X is designed to emphasize your weaknesses as well as your strengths. This is the sole reason why it works. Never before did you see Yoga and weightlifting in the same program because even trainers gravitate toward only one or two specialties.

Boredom, plateaus and injury are the enemy and the only way to combat them is through Variety. If you're struggling it's working. Swallow some humble pie and get busy.
