Earlier this week I was having a conversation with a FFTOB student, and she mentioned how often people ask her what she is training for. Of course, those types of questions can be expected with all of the thought-provoking photos of you working out on Facebook and calluses on your hands.Her answer was one that I am quite pr ...

Are you a “realist”? So often, I think we chalk up “the way things are” as the only way they can be. This shows up in numerous places for different people, especially as we get older. Suddenly, we don’t shoot for goals that seem too far out of reach. We don’t expect successes that are too grandiose.I mean we’v ...

Often times in my life I am hit with huge waves of gratitude. I make it an effort to have awareness to the things I am grateful for, but we can't ever be too thankful.

Time and time again I hear this as a “reason” for not training. Reluctantly, I will let you continue to call this excuse a “reason.” Fortunately for such believers, though, there is no such thing as being in shape enough to train at FFOTB!
