"I simply want to be strong; not to advertise my strength on a T-shirt, but to be capable of enjoying life. I don’t care how much I bench, squat, or deadlift. I don’t really care how many times I can snatch a bell or a bar. I don’t even care how far I can crawl. I only want to be strong and able. I care about that. I want to feel good. I want to feel strong. I want to be a capable husband and an able dad.
If I want to sprint, I want to be able to sprint like a teenager. If I want to climb a tree, I want to have the strength to do so – like a ninja. If my son wants to wrestle, I want to be able to tie him into a pretzel – even when he is 30. If my wife needs me to lift something for her, I want to be able to do it – always, at any age. If an adventure should call out to me, I want to be able to answer the call and then conquer it."
"How strong are you? How capable are you? How able are you? What can you do “now.” Who can you be in the “now” to come? Life is found in the now."
