The Philosophy of Fitness

Act of Valor star Lt. Cmdr. Rorke explained some basic rules for Men's Health Magazine to create a mentality and lifestyle that sets you up to not only achieve fitness goals, but also some life goals.
  1. Strive for something- set a plan on reaching for an achievement, whether an amount of weight to lose, a distance to run, or a weight to lift. This can prepare you for getting up and completing your task, as long as you believe in completing it.
  2. Then strive for more- always challenge yourself to believe that you can accomplish more than what you are doing right now
  3. Don't set limits- just keep trying until you can't go any further. You could be surprised at how much you can do if you just let yourself
  4. Work with someone better than you- that's right, you know they are better than you. Now try to beat them.
With the attitude that you can always be better than where you are right now, you can make great strides and changes in your life. It's about the attitude. Give yourself the chance to be even better.
