I have said many times that the comfort zone is the sewer pit of life.

Nothing good happens there.

One of the best cures for the comfort zone is joing the military, however, many people will never do that. Only about 1% of our population ever does.

That 1% gets the job done!

When I went through Sapper School many years ago one of the things that challenged me in particular was rapelling off a cliff with another soldier tied to my back. This is one way to evacuate a wounded soldier in mountainous terrain.

Watch the video from 15 to 18 minutes in and you’ll see all kinds of people struggling with this

Of course, the entire school was tough, but I loved it.

Civilians need need to find another way to break out of the comfort zone.

The first step is getting your mind in the right place, then your body will follow.

Hard physical training is a good way to do that.

If you are not going to enlist in the military, then come to the Cave Gym and I will get you out of your comfort zone and on the road to being stronger and more fit.

I am a veteran of the U.S. Army Airborne and a graduate of the Sapper Leader School.
