No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training…what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.
Your body is a billboard.
It's the first thing people notice about you, long before they learn of your education, accomplishments, or your heart of gold.
Do they see self-discipline, perseverance, self-respect, strength, and self-restraint? Do they notice a smoothness in the way you move, and a confidence in the way you stand?
When you run into people from your past, do they think, "Wow, what happened to him?! He used to be in such good shape?" Or, do they think, "Wow, what happened to him?! He looks great!"
Or, do they think nothing at all?
You don't have to look like Wolverine. Nor do you need the strength of Thor, or the endurance to complete an Ironman.
However, your physical appearance does paint the picture in others minds of your self-discipline, self-respect, self-restraint, and self-confidence. In their subconscious minds, they assume the way you care for your body is the way you care for everything else.
But, but, but...it's so hard...you don't understand...my circumstances are unique...nobody told me...STOP!
Average Joe finds fault with everyone and everything else.
He's out-of-shape because he sees himself as a victim of circumstances. He gives away the responsibility for his life by blaming others.
Average Joe settles. He "does the best he can." He chooses the easy and effortless path instead of the hard and rewarding one.
If you want to live with VIGOR, you have to think differently than Average Joe.
First, you must accept 100% responsibility for where you are today, and where you will be in the future.
Then, you must take action. Not once in a while. Not when it's convenient. Not when your wife or friends hold your hand and help you do it. Every day. No matter what.
In doing so, you not only take control of you your health and fitness, you also set a example for your significant other, children, coworkers and friends.
We don't need more Average Joes.
We need more men who stand apart from the average. Men who have the energy and enthusiasm to work hard, lead well, and care for and protect their families. We need more men who refuse to settle.
We need more men who live with and for VIGOR.
Men who give a damn about themselves, so they have the energy and motivation to give a damn about others.
And it all starts with the small, daily discipline of rebuilding your body, which reframes your mind.
There are so many programs out there. What makes VIGOR unique?
After two decades in health and fitness, I've seen what works and what doesn't. I've learned that motivating men, and moving them to action means I need to shoot them straight.
Like a good parent, my first responsibility is to lead you down the right path, even if that means pissing you off once in a while.
Through VIGOR, I'll give you the programming, education, and recommend the products you need to discover the VIGOR within you.
You'll also have the VIGOR community to cheer on your accomplishments, and show you some tough, brotherly love when your head's not "in the game."
VIGOR is a program. VIGOR is a mindset. VIGOR is a community of like-minded men.
Men were made to be strong…strong in mind, spirit, and body. His physical health, strength, and stamina impact his career, relationships, and his ability to add value to the world. Strength is a mark of masculinity.
In a world that encourages men to be…less masculine, we need to connect with other guys who value the virtues of manhood. Real, authentic, Godly manhood.
Faith is important, but we can’t pray away our health problems, or wait for God to make the time in our schedule to get to the gym. We need to take ownership of our health. And we need other men who show us tough love so our excuses don’t become our beliefs.
The VIGOR community won't be for you if you have a habit of making excuses, blaming others, complaining, or otherwise giving away your responsibility for your health and fitness.
Your VIGOR Training or VIGOR Premium membership includes a variety of training programs. You can participate in the "team" training, which is delivered each week, and based on an annual training cycle, or choose another training cycle based on your needs and goals.
