How Testing and Experimenting Helps Me in My Strength Training Journey
The biggest challenge I had was figuring out what to do with my free time when I went from training so frequently to training less frequently. But that challenge was fairly easy to overcome. I just picked up some new hobbies. I got more into martial arts, read more books, learned about skepticism and stoicism, developed a meditation habit, got into movies and gaming again, and so much more.

How I Went from Stuntman to Full-Time Bodybuilder and WBFF Fitness Model Pro
After breakfast, I’ll spend 15 – 20 minutes centering myself for the day and actually participate in a form of meditation or gentle yoga. I can’t tell you how much practicing mediation, mindfulness, and yoga has helped me in every aspect of my life – business, relations as well as my actual weight training itself from the point of view of improved focus and being truly present in every repetition I ever do.

I'm a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, and Plant-Based Chef. This is How Fitness Has Become My Meditation
I started on the heels of a divorce and I remember saying I just want to get in the best shape I can be in. And fitness and training was like a form of meditation for me as it allowed me to go somewhere else for a minute de-stress and it also helped me get stronger on the inside as well as the outside. I always say fitness brought me back.

How I Went Vegan, Replaced 50 Lbs of Fat with Muscle and Became a Pro Bodybuilder
I’m a firm believer in mediation and unwinding for the mind. Just like our body needs proper fuel and rest, the mind does too! Finding that meditation time and recharging in the way that suits you best is critical.

How I Became a Vegan WBFF Pro Fitness Model and European Vice Champion
For me a workout is like meditation, you focus on your body and yourself with ass less stimulation as possible, so music, no training partner, no chats, it’s a time you take yourself, and only for yourself.
