Why do we work so hard in the gym?
To improve our lives outside of it. We all have ideas for all the great adventures and accomplishments we can achieve and the work at the gym helps us with those goals. When we’re 95 we may no longer care what our 1RM Back Squat was, but I’m sure you WILL be glad you were able to complete the hiking trek to Machu Pichu. And all those squats definitely helped you do it.
We do this hard work in the gym to enable us to pursue adventure OUTSIDE the gym. On your deathbed, you might not care about your max-rep thruster, but you WILL be glad you climbed the Grey Sisters in Australia. And the thrusters helped you do it.
Few of us will ever be the smartest, the best looking, the wealthiest, or make it to the NFL.
But ALL of us can be interesting. And what’s more interesting than being able to discuss all the various unique adventures or accomplishments you’ve completed? Our fitness creates that opportunity to widen the spectrum of options better than anything else.
You don’t need to be wealthy to compete in a triathlon. Nor do you need to be wealthy to travel the world (a common misconception). But doing those things can make you more interesting than the wealthy guy that just works a lot.
When we go, we don’t get to take the money with us. But our stroy, if we made a good one, will survive beyond us. So let’s write a dang good one.
Our goal at EBCF is to open your life in ways not previously thought. Nothing needs to be off the table. We make to create the ability to make any chapter you want in your story. We’ve all begun writing our story, but maybe we can help you begin to write in a new direction.
Having goals is only valuable to the point of necessity. Building a roadmap to help you achieve is crucial. But finishing with a great story, that’s what we’re all looking for. And fitness is the platform to start writing.
Ride a bike, hike the PCT, or build your deck: regardless of the objective, the gym is necessary to do it.
