120716 "Driven Beyond Barriers"

You are a gifted athlete. A unique drive, a unique skill set. I see it in you each day you come into the gym. The passion and the appreciation can be fleeting sometimes when we forget just how good we have it.

Our Health.

Our Minds.

Our Hearts.

The human spirit that is on display in the Olympics is partly to highlight the amazing feats that we are ale to achieve. But more importantly, it is about the DRIVE that pushes athletes to do the incredible... sometimes against all odds.

The U.S. Paralympic team is a great example. Below is a brief video about the determination and mindset of athletes with disabilities. I believe that what it truly shows the the absolute ABILITY these athletes have of saying, "SCREW IT... Im going to dominate no matter what!! Nothing will stand in my Way".

Do you have this same drive?
