They Climbed to the Top

Those who reach peaks of potential did not fall to the top; they climbed. Peaks are not permanent but they are possible if planned and pursued. #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="They Climbed to the Top";a2a_linkurl="";

Lions Never Loose Sleep Over Opinions Of Sheep

April 20, 2015 – 2:00 pm
We apologize for the offensive comments a visitor posted to here. Since this account is now run by the office, we weren't alerted to it until customers furiously called in: "Even if many people are foolish enough to think you're the best in fitness, you're still a dislexic with a broken neck. [NAME REMOVED] may not as successful as you but at least he's not a retard with kyphosis." When people post comments like these, remember they only attack with words because your shining example has made them suddenly aware of the glaring deficiencies in their own reflection. They lash out at their own ugliness. Don't take what others say personally. You are the Lion. You have succeeded because of your personal challenges not despite them. It is a shame that people can resort to such vile and debasing comments. We apologize again to the families who rely on this page for information, updates ...

Who Will Bring the Others Back

April 20, 2015 – 1:58 pm
Being a "warrior" is a bandied and often over-used term. I've grown reluctant to use it for the banality each usage brings it. But at times, I feel it important to revitalize a term from the competing definitions against which it is being waged.Some define warriors as those who will wage war against an enemy, in its most literal sense. Others want to define it as a rebellion against any resistance, be it exercise or nutrition; a romanticized "inner" warrior. I do not dispute these usages. However, when I use the term warrior, I refer to the courage-forged character which enables us, despite wounds and terrors, to turn back toward danger, run toward and wade through greater harm and hardship with the intent of bringing the fallen back from harm's way. I know fighters who are not warriors, having been with champions in their sport who fled first and fastest when innocents ...

Don’t confuse the presence of self-improvement with the absence of self-acceptance

April 17, 2015 – 8:53 am
One asked, "Why do you tell people they have to be more fit? Why can't you accept them for who they are? We are all special!" The recent fascism of "bright and shiny" (excessive) positivism undermines self-development. Don't confuse the presence of self-improvement with the absence of self-acceptance. As author Chuck Palahniuk writes, "You're not a beautiful, unique snowflake. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time." Or in the words of the Dalai Llama: "You're perfect as you are, and you need a lot of improvement." Don't be emotional attached to deficits but true practice of self-acceptance admits them, faces what needs work, and gets it done. Skewed self-judgments of perfection or imperfection need not slow you down. Really, you're only one good workout and one good meal away from an awesome mood. a2a_linkname="Don't confuse the presence of self-improvement with the absence of self-acceptance";a2a_linkurl="";

Stay Stronger - Live Longer

April 17, 2015 – 8:36 am
  It doesn't matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop. Harvard Scientists published in the Journal of Internal Medicine a 14 year study showing that if you exercise only 150 minutes per week you have a 31% less chance of dying. Exercise 3x that amount and you gain another 8% decrease in mortality. Those who spend 10 times that amount of time exercising per week showed no greater benefit to mortality. (But those who spent one third of that time in strenuous / high intensity exercise vs moderate gained an addition 13% decrease in mortality). No matter how slow, even a moderate pace will make you a third more likely to live longer (and make a small portion of that hard exercise, and you're 50% more likely to love long over those who don't).

“Learning Never Exhausts the Mind”: False.

April 15, 2015 – 9:36 am
Da Vinci said, "Learning never exhausts the mind." Da Vinci was an genius and remains an icon, but this quote has been proven to be incorrect. "Working memory overload" is a proven aspect of neurological function. Like the benefits of physical fitness do not come during the exercise, but during the period of recovery after it; so, too, with mental exercise. Learning has stages, like physical exercise: a mobility warm-up (to prepare attention), ramp-up activation (to concentrate specific focus), a series of progressive challenges (to expand base of known into the unknown), a potential over-reaching (overload) threshold, which if followed by a period of recovery and repair, leads to systemic "strengthening" (conceptual integration); but if over-reaching continues leads to exceeding memory capacity in which learning cannot happen. a2a_linkname="\"Learning Never Exhausts the Mind\": False.";a2a_linkurl="";

If Nothing Changes…

April 15, 2015 – 9:05 am
With your movement, if nothing changes, nothing changes. Stop trying to do more of the same; heavier, faster, more often - but not any different - just strengthens your current problems. Go back to the basics, and do it better. Improve and change happens as a byproduct from your betterment. #TACFIT #511Tactical a2a_linkname="If Nothing Changes...";a2a_linkurl="";
