It is an understatement to say the flood of information (and mis-information) on the Internet is very confusing.

There are some very credible training resources online which are often almost blotted out by hype and faddish nonsense.

Unconventional training is  not exempt from this any more than mainstream fitness.

The general public often falls prey to the flashy and unfounded promises of unscrupulous advertisers. They just know, and often are too lazy to do their “homework” to find the quality coaches & trainers.

People sometimes group things together in an attempt to  simplify things.

Take for example  mace training.

Is mace flow like a mace completion at the Vintage Strength Games?

No, not at all. The only similarity is that they both use maces

It is important for people to know what they would like to learn and why.

Here’s another example.

Is a mace certification the same thing as a  macefit.com certification?

Once again, the answer is no.

A mace certification teaches the mace.

Macefit teaches a broader spectrum of training using different types of equipment.

In fact, neither does  Bud Jeffries. He  has been proving the naysayers wrong about what “big guys can’t do” for many years . As you can see here

If you are a big guy, or you train big guys don’t be limited by foolish nonsense.

Take off the limits and prove the negative people wrong!

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.
