What are you fighting for? Success! Success comes in different forms for different people. It is YOUR success.
Who are you fighting? The naysayers, your self-doubt, the demon voice in your head that tells you to sleep in and skip your workout or to eat crap.
Why? Because success feels and tastes a hell of a lot better than failure.
How? With support of friends, your partner and your coach to hold you accountable. With a good solid training plan so you can do it right and with a physical therapist that is there for you when you "fall" because chances are you will "fall" a few times.
