“Society isn’t your boss”


Published by


Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

      1. I did. I don’t necessarily agree with the direction you took it. I’m more of a “how weak are you that you would let society dictate how you feel about yourself” or better, “Because society is such a diverse group, you can’t possibly know what it expects” kind of guy. Finally, my favorite is, “What you think of me is none of my business, so it really doesn’t matter”.

        Still, too many people rely on the society crutch, so any way it can be broken is fine by me.

      2. Ahh! Okay, no, I understand where you are coming from. Two different directions but both are very strong points. Society is a diverse group of people, but again this whole everyone fits in a certain group thing (which can be fitness/non fitness topics) is what gets me, everyone in my field of work wants to be something someone else is in order to fit in – from my own point of view. I have never heard of your last quote, but I find that one to be good reference.

      3. Truthfully, I think the message often comes down who’s hearing it. Your message is fantastic for a lot of people, and that’s why I liked it. I just don’t happen to be one of them. This goes back to the diversity you referenced in your reply. In recovery I run into the same thing quite often. My message and experience is a little to straight-forward for many. Anyway, great post.

      4. Jim, whose hearing it? NO ONE! lol only you heard it! haha. obviously you might be the only support I get on the YouTube video, which is fine with me because you share your honest opinion and not this “great video”, or “good talk” , etc bullshit that is nice to hear but doesn’t strike any kind of conversation or feedback. I like that you watched it, I do appreciate that! not to mention actually share your straight forward opinion – that not many like but should appreciate because we arent born to be bubble wrapped. ( As a matter of fact I was talking to a co-worker about people having this “bubble wrap” mentality) something I should do a video about.

        I like the straight forward stuff, although I try to keep it not so much, because like you mentioned more people prefer the “baby talk” , so.. I need to keep their attention. lol.

  1. Thanks for sharing this video. Two thoughts came to mind:
    “Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery
    In other words, you be you because character counts more than exterior show

    And this is my counterpoint to you have to fit a certain mould to be accepted, famous, trusted, etc.:

    1. You always come up with such quotes for every scenario, I don’t know how, but you do. lol.
      I would agree, and I hope many people realize that as well, that character triumphs appearance – I was always told a woman can be sexy as hell and have a bad personality and it ruins it! lol. This goes both ways of course. Also, I plugged in the URL in my browser and it didnt work?
