This is an older post from my other blog, Fit 2 Go!




Allow me to get a bit “deep” with this post. 🙂 I believe one of the most important factors in one’s quest for improved fitness is INTENSITY. Crazy as it sounds, it’s one of the most important factors, yet it’s seriously lacking from many people’s workouts. I’m going to venture off the “fitness” path for just a second to hypothesize that this has something to do with a lack of intensity in many people’s everyday lives. Many people just “go through the motions” each and every day…get up, brush teeth, eat breakfast, shower, dress, drive to work, work, come home, sit on couch to watch tv, eat, sleep…do it all over again the next day. Blah blah blah blah…BORING! Add to this the fact that many people are “stuck” in careers which leave them feeling drained and unfulfilled at the end of the day.

Where’s the excitement? Where’s the challenge? Where’s the LIVING?


I’m not saying go out there and jump out of airplanes in order to prove you’re living a “full” life…i’m saying that in order to get the most out of life, you gotta ACT…and in order to act, you gotta put forth EFFORT…and in order to put forth effort, you gotta have the right level of INTENSITY!

I feel there’s a correlation between intensity and the ability for one to live a full, healthy life.

You see, if one is unable to put forth the right amount of effort in their workouts, they aren’t gonna reach their fitness goals. Same thing goes for any life goal..I mean, you’re not gonna make it into an Ivy League school without having a stellar GPA, excellent study skills, and top-notch test scores.

So, in my roundabout way i’ve made my point (hopefully). 🙂

If you’re wanting to take things to the next level, no matter what the situation may be, you MUST be able to apply some INTENSITY! Get out there and go for it! No one ever got anywhere just sitting on their as*!!!!!!!! Got it? Good!
