Feeling like a truck rolled over me is not the greatest reaction upon waking, a reminder of the intense StrikeFit exercise class I experienced yesterday. Roundhouse kicks, upper and lower hooks, varying punch combinations including those empowering hammers, cardio versions of squats, sit ups, and surfing burpees, all intensified by speed, balance, agility, and a kickass instructor. Instead of laying low, I am invigorated by its outcome, a stronger heart, leaner arms, tighter core, and solidifying legs.
The increasing strength from intense boot camps and strikefit classes energizes, empowers, and engages every part of me. Feeling younger, stronger, meaner and leaner, the best version of myself materializes, with layers of alabaster gradually forming a masterful exterior. Achieving the inner masterpiece to match the outer sculpted core is where the real work exists.
To strengthen the mind in support of a brawn built external frame and a clean interior continues to occupy my daily deeds. Eating clean, resting fully, meditatively walking through life with mindfulness, and living open heartedly, are integral tasks towards my own version of nirvana. Fueling my thoughts with necessary action steps to maintain healthy habits is a constant, fed with intention, focus, and energy. My mindset must maintain the visual outcome, the desire for a destiny that lives long past its initial goal of size, strength, and scale outcomes. Peace of mind, self-acceptance of my body, and a self-love unfelt in a heart that was always worthy, are the ultimate pinnacles for my success.
Until then, the journey continues.
