In 2002, Howard Schatz published a photography collection named Athletes. Below are a few of the pictures from the book.
You may notice that every one of the pictured athletes displays a different variation of the human body.
What you may not know is each of the athletes pictured was near the top of their sport at the time these pictures were taken.
Just take a moment and observe how different one body is from the next.
Which body type are you drawn to?
Which bodies do you find the most attractive?...
Or the most unattractive?
What athletes look "healthy" or "unhealthy" to you?
Which bodies do you associate with being an “athlete”?
What does "strong" look like to you?
Who do you think is in the "best" condition?
You may be wondering, "what does this have to do with the TRAIN 4 LIFE Philosophy?"
In a word, EVERYTHING.
The TRAIN 4 LIFE Philosophy is based on the premise that each of us has an inner athlete; a part of us that is capable of achieving more and feeling better than we ever thought possible, just by using our bodies to their full capacity.
The wonderful thing about Schatz’ pictures is that all the athletes come in different shapes and sizes. And just like those photos portray, TRAIN 4 LIFE understands that strength and athleticism is defined differently for each individual.
Fat loss, muscle gain, athletic achievement, aesthetic appeal, being comfortable around food; these are all by-products of accessing the capabilities of your body.
Does that mean we only focus on working out? No.
Does it mean we only focus on nutrition? No.
Does this mean we only focus on your mindset? No.
It means we name your goals, look at the entire picture, understand the plan, and in the process learn how to change your mindset from short-term goal to longterm sustainability.
We TRAIN 4 LIFE.
So what are you waiting for?
You have the potential to feel all the emotions you think the people in those fitness magazines do...
the pure joy that comes with being at balance in mind, body, spirit, and life.
You owe it to yourself to TRAIN 4 LIFE.
