The Gym of Life: 32 Ways to "Max Out" Professionally, Personally, and Spiritually

 
9781522996330: The Gym of Life: 32 Ways to

You already know the dedication it takes to see results in one area of your life. Now it’s time to apply your “strength training” across the board. When someone asks you what day of the week it is do you say which body part you’re working that day (Chest day, Leg day, Upper body, or Lower body)? I know I’m not the only one. Many people don’t understand our enthusiasm for working out. It’s more than the gym...it’s our life. Ever since my parents got me a weight bench for my 14th birthday, diet and exercise has been a passion of mine. All my closest friends felt the same way; we were hooked. I loved the progression I’ve made throughout the years, going from a chubby kid not being able to do 1 push-up to having a 6-pack and being able to bench 250 pounds. Despite my progression, I was unsatisfied with where I was in life. I was in excellent shape, but still felt inadequate in many areas. I was using the gym to hide from my problems. I worried about everything, got stressed easily, and was terrified of failure. I thought, It would be great if I could translate my success in the gym to other areas of my life. To have more confidence in my abilities, to be able to take more risks and pursue my dreams. Again, I’m not alone. I know many gym-goers that are living unsatisfied lives and I wrote this book to help them become enthusiastic about life the same way they are about working out. It occurred to me that the knowledge was there; I have a doctorate degree and am highly educated on the human body. Also, I spent hundreds of hours researching exercise and nutrition throughout my life in hopes of getting the body of my dreams. I needed to find a way to translate it to something more than lifting weights. I realized I could make long lasting changes if I took something I knew and was passionate about and made it applicable to life. Whenever a gym metaphor came to me I logged it in my phone and would share it with other “gym rats.” Often I heard, “I never thought about it like that before. That’s awesome!” After a couple months of logging my ideas, I realized I had enough material to write a book on gym metaphors. I finished school in 2015, but I’m now a student of life. Every day I’m observing myself and people around me and learning what I can do to make life better for all of us. One of the best ways to make radical changes is to take what you already know (going to the gym) and apply it to something larger (your values, character, self-esteem, etc.). Stories and metaphors are powerful, especially if they are centered on things you’re interested in. I’ve found these have yielded the greatest results in making positive changes in my life and those I share my ideas with. If you love working out, then you can’t miss out on these 32 metaphors that will change how you live your life. These ideas are for the person that still works out on holidays, vacations, and their birthday. Working out is something they have to do, it’s something they want to do. This book is for the person that loves the gym and wants to get even more out of life. I had so much fun writing this and hope this short book will release the superhuman strength that’s already inside you. Please give me the opportunity to show you 32 ways how the “gym of life” will help you “max out” professionally, personally, and spiritually!

A majority of his life he has struggled with his weight, social anxiety and the feeling of never being good enough. However, he's made radical changes and wants to share what he learns with others so they can improve their lives, too.
