Power Through Fitness Episode#3: Role Models and Inspiration

What's going on everyone, in this week's episode I cover the importance of having a role model for your fitness, physical strength and toughness. A lot of times in life we forget to look to others for inspiration and become complacent with our own bullshit, weak will and

lack of motivation. This episode will round out nicely the theme I’ve had throughout the first 2 episodes, which is mindset and internal driving factors of physical discipline and motivation. The next episode I’ll be covering some more tangible topics, like supplements and how to avoid scams, shopping smart and sticking to basic tried and true ingredients to propel your physical fitness to optimal performance.

In the meantime enjoy the show!

    For me Stallone (Rambo) and Arnold (Conan, Comando) were huge for me as a kid, I used make my parents rent these two movies for me EVERY week, and I would cycle these films! It’s amazing what an impact a strong male archetype can have on a young boy. Bruce Lee also, even though I didn’t watch his films, his attitude towards training was very inspirational.

      Absolutely, I grew up watching all their movies over and over. The rocky movies 1-4 are beyond inspirational. The predator with Arnold, Carl Weathers and Jesse Ventura. Movies have a big impact for sure. Nowadays the only strong male role model I can think of is the Rock.


  2. My role model (s), were the twin real men, of ancient times. Europeans I admired, were “The Gladiator” of ancient Rome. And, the intellectual/Spiritual leaders, the even older, Druids. British Druidic traditions, were already established in pre-Roman Britain, and they sent Druids to the continent, including the Belgae (Modern Belgium).

    Great choices. For me when it comes to ancient times, the Spartan culture of breeding warriors immediately cones to mind as inspirational.


  4. Gabe – enjoyed your show as always. It’s so easy to get sucked in to the habit of putting these celebrities on a pedestal like the media does and treating them as somehow more than men. The Michael Jordans, the Stallones, the Schwarzeneggers, they are all men who made the extra sacrifices. Normal men who didn’t give up. Does that mean if you do commit long term you’ll definitely be the next big noise in your sport? definitely not. But the distance between where you currently are and where you want to be is paved with choices. Each step is a choice to stay on the path or get off it. And that’s the difference between a guy who is great at what he does, regardless of whether he has the natural talent to compete at top level, and a guy who just sits it out and never moves forward. Keep up the good work Gabe.

  5. Mattin, excellent points. I always appreciate your input. Greatness is then a simple execution of consistently working hard and believing in oneself!
