Starting tomorrow I undertake a major challenge: to truly GET DIESEL! You know me as the potty mouthed turn-anything-into-a-d*ck-joke night show host on the Planet. I like shooting guns, 4 wheeling in the woods, and going to heavy metal shows. All my life I've enjoyed working out. I consider myself to be in decent shape. I'm 6'0", 218 lbs, muscular build, but like most people work and life caught up with me...my 4-5 day a week workout schedule fell to 2-3, my diet got worse (I mean come on, who doesn't love pizza and burgers) and I wasn't getting enough exercise to eat whatever I wanted anymore.
In high school I played sports. I wasn't the biggest, fastest, or strongest player on the team but no matter what I never quit. I can still remember running basketball suicides until I puked, then getting back out there and running some more. I loved being pushed to a breaking point. I've always believed that losing weight and getting fit cannot and will not come out of a bottle. A pill or a powder is only a temporary pharmaceutical fix, and when I heard HPG's motto "there is no magic pill, hard work is the only way" I knew I'd crashed into the right people.
Which is why I'm so excited to have this opportunity to team up with Clay and Elizabeth Burwell at High Performance Gym in Greenville. In my heart I knew what I needed to do, but didn't know how. They are the how. You may or may not have heard their radio commercials about them training celebrities like Matt Damon, Anna Paquin, and Bruce Springsteen. Do you think Jason Bourne, Rogue, or 'The Boss' would hire Clay to travel the world with him if he wasn't legit?
What I want to gain from this 6 month run with HPG is both simple and complex. Simply, I want to improve myself; but specifically I want to:
If any of those goals sound similar to goals you may have I invite you to follow along with my progress while I "Get Diesel". I'll be posting videos and blogs regularly throughout. Track me and take the challenge for yourself. Workout videos will show you what happens inside the gym, my blogs, Facebook posts, and Tweets will track how I'm feeling mentally throughout. I certainly look forward to your words of encouragement and your questions. Of course you can reach out to the Burwells also, afterall they're the experts.
Improve my strength and stamina.
Change my diet -- there's a reason a majority of Americans are overweight and on medications -- we eat terribly.
Improve my mental and physical discipline.
Drop 10-15 lbs from my current weight of 218.
Regain that drive and addiction to working out I once had.
