The Few and The Proud

Via Fight Geek:

There are no guarantees in life, even if you get up at 4:30 in the morning. This does not mean you shouldn't try. It is the attempt that leads to success. Those that try may fail; but those that do not try at all are destined for failure.

Before you back down from a challenge as yourself, "What's the worst that could happen?" Think of the absolute, most horrid scenario you can and imagine it down to the last detail. See yourself in the midst of this gruesome, unspeakable nightmare and live through it to the very end. See yourself emerge from the other side, unbroken and in one piece.

After this short mind-game, that challenge you almost stepped away from doesn't seem so bad.

There's a fitness school in New York run by a military crew, very similar to this. I almost signed up, but it was wallet breaking expensive.

Watch the video again. Notice how little equipment they use? Just some dumbbells and playground architecture. Don't be afraid to get creative! You don't need much to get great results.
