What “I Want To Get Back In Shape” Really…

One of the coolest things about growing up is seeing how your friends turn out. Luckily, the majority of my friends were all good, smart kids, and so it’s no surprise to me that they’ve all been quite successful in life. One of those friends, I’m proud to say, is now the owner and founder of RISE School of Strength in King of Prussia, PA.  Per his website, “Marshall Roy was named Best Personal Trainer 2014 by Philadelphia Magazine. In addition to being a personal trainer, Marshall is an accomplished powerlifter, kickboxing black belt, and published writer. He earned his personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and is an SFG level II kettlebell instructor, Precision Nutrition nutrition coach (Pn1), and certified practitioner of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS). He has appeared nationally in fitness segments on The Weather Channel and has contributed to Self Magazine, Elite FTS, and Philadelphia Magazine.”  

So, ya know, basically a badass.

I love most of what he posts on Facebook and Instagram, but I particularly wanted to share Marshall’s latest YouTube post because I agree so whole-heartedly with how we need to get right with our internal dialogue if we want to improve and maintain our health.  Watch the video below and hear Marshall’s a-ha! moment for how a simple change in perspective could be the missing component you need to get back in shape for good.

Do you agree with Marshall? Let me know why or why not, in the comments section below!
