The Big Discussion

  • The crew discusses their individual journeys. The road less taken that leads to a bigger and better version of ourselves. We discuss the obstacles and the victories along the way and what we hope to find at the end of our destination.


The Struggle: (obstacles to overcome in the month ahead)

  • Clay: I have one month left with my personal trainer. My obstacle will be the having the self-discipline to continue getting out of bed and pushing through the intensive workouts without the presence of a motivator pushing me to get in those last reps when I think I can’t go on.

  • Mike: I'm in a gaining phase right now, which isn't the smartest idea during summer. The biggest obstacle for me, will be to maintain a calorie surplus and not worry about summer being summer shredded with abs.

  • Geoff: The summer time for me is easy to add on pounds because of cook-outs and/or going to the beach every weekend. Drinking limits my weight-loss progress!

  • Darren: Biggest obstacle right now is patience. I just had surgery 2 ½ weeks ago. I was cleared to start running this week but no full workouts for probably another two weeks. I feel that I’m losing some muscle tone that I worked so hard for. I’m dying to get back in the gym ASAP.
