What’s in a word? Your entire attitude!


Here is a list of words and terms which I relate to my own workouts each week. These words all matter to me because I care — I care about each workout as though it were my child.

Read these words. Repeat them. Get familiar with them. Cut them form this book and keep them in your gym bag, or just keep them in your head.

When revisited on a regular basis, and practiced within your workout, these words can help you maximize your gym time and your workout attitude.

Train like an athlete, eat like a shark, walk like a god!

Train like an athlete, eat like a shark, walk like a god!

There is no specific order here. In fact, to construct the perfect workout I believe these terms should all be practiced in equal proportion:

  • Achievable
  • Challenging
  • Focused
  • Relentless
  • Intelligent
  • Engineered
  • Basic
  • Athletic
  • Form
  • Functional
  • Artistic
  • Seamless
  • Controlled
  • Consistent
  • Improved
  • Pure
  • Balanced
  • Aesthetic
  • Cleansed
  • Commitment
  • Style
  • Moderation

Go ahead. Take these words and weave them into your fitness psyche. There may just be a better workout waiting for you next time you are in the gym, on the road, at the park, or wherever you exercise.  Be well.  rc

  1. Agreed.

    This post reminds me of a post I wrote quite a few years back, before I even knew what WordPress was/is. And I also listed words I believe should be in everyone’s workout/life on a regular. I like to think great minds think a lot alike. This is quite scary. But it’s oddly fantastical at the same time. 😀
