#MightyMonday – How Epic Are You?

Music…there is no denying its power.  Music can be used to inspire, encourage, and uplift us.  Music can make us feel a sea of emotions.  Music is life.

When thinking about the subject of music, there is one form of music that I can count on to go to when I am in need of inspiration or a nudge for greatness.  The genre of music called “Epic Music.”

Dictionary.com defines “Epic” as heroic; majestic; impressively great: the epic events of the war.

Epic music genre, to me, is the sweeping music that can make your emotions travel to different places instantly.  Epic music is the type of music you may see in a movie trailer that is action-packed or a drama.

Here is a piece that blows my socks off (this piece is also featured in the upcoming Robocop trailer). The song is called “Crimson Shade.”

How Sons of Anarchy Can Teach Us A Secret About Fitness Training?


Did you know that you can learn from anything and apply to your fitness goals?

Take for example, the blockbuster hit show “Sons of Anarchy.”  Here is a show about an outlaw motorcycle gang that works together to protect the fictional town of Charming, California.  They treat each other like family.  They support each other. Even discipline each other.

Do you see the take-away and how we can apply this to fitness?

You can decide to be an island to yourself and think you can do your fitness goals by yourself.

Hate to burst your bubble.

You can’t.

You need a support group (affectionately called “Fit Fam”) to lift you up when you are down, encourage you, and push you to be better.

Only then can you realize true greatness and in the end give back to those who helped you.

One of the secrets to fitness training is…synergy.

So tell me.

What Fit Fam do you have in place?
