I learned over the years that you shouldn’t spend more than you make. When I moved from my old location to what is now the Cave, I kept that financial approach in place.

Just about everything we bought was used. The rest we made ourselves or had skilled friends  make it for us.  On rare occasions we bought new stuff, but only as needed.

In contrast, all around there was  a major fitness organization hitting hyper growth and bigger fancier gyms were springing up around us quickly.

I stuck to my original plan and heard through the grapevine that I was being mocked as “the old guy with the dumpy gym”, and  who in their right mind would want to train in a place like that? They  didn’t have anything fancy or shiny there, no mirrors, no sound system, no amenities of any kind.

I have to laugh now, looking back, a number of those people are gone now.

My training philosophy is still very basic as is my gym.

I am now older and the Cave is going strong!

Nothing fancy, just results!

Many people want changes made, but most refuse to change themselves.

Why is that?

Simple, change requires a few things that people often are resistant to:

  • a realistic grasp of what the current problem areas are
  • a solid plan to make those changes happen
  • more self-discipline
  • more hard work
  • more patience

People often sabotage themselves in their own minds with thoughts like:

  • I have never been able to ___________
  • My upper body has always been weak
  • I am too out of shape to start over
  • I’m too busy
  • I’m too tired
  • I’m too old

The list goes on and on. None of those negative  thoughts will ever help a person get the changes they want.
