I had planned to talk more today about my favourite book - How to Win Friends and Influence People. I even finished writing my piece and I was ready to publish it but changed my mind at the last minute.
I feel that we need some unity to start the week strong.
I don’t know about you but since Friday my social media feeds have become very political and very, very negative. A lot of people are taking to cyberspace to air out their political views. I have seen friend ships nearly crumble as a result.
I am not here to get political today, this is a positive fitness and holistic blog. I am here to share a simple idea with you. It is the idea that staying positive in a tough situation could save you from falling apart.
Now you might be sitting there thinking, “how can I stay positive when times are tough?"
My answer to you is simple, you have to overcome your fear of the situation. I’ll repeat that last part, overcome your fear of the situation. Fear is the one ingredient that can drive people mad; it causes them to give up on themselves and others. Fear held me back for years when I wanted to get healthy - it made me eat most of the pizza in the world. Why? Because I was scared of the pain and the hard work that I had to put in to re-build myself.
Now I could quote Yoda from Star Wars here, oh hell, why not? He was a fantastically philosophical little dude.
(Put your best in-head Yoda accent on.)
"Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to sufferingggggg.”
Never has a statement been so profound from a CGI character on the Hollywood screens, now to quote someone a little more real:
"Don’t fight with the fear, otherwise you’ll become more and more afraid, and a new fear will enter into your being, which is fear of fear. Which is very dangerous.” - Osho
Don’t fight fear, overcome it with positive thinking.
Osho has some amazing words of wisdom and I would highly recommend his books if you want to understand yourself and the world around you a little better. I don’t want to make this blog post much longer than it needs to be. I just hope that you understand that fear is what creates the doubt in people’s minds.
Whether you are trying to change your life through fitness or trying to make a better future for your family you have to realise that fear breeds darkness - LOVE brings light, hope and positive thoughts.
Love yourself and show love for others.
I might sound like an idealist but I don’t think I am, I think that everyone is capable of a showing more love and compassion for each other than they know. My opinion is that, we can all show more love for each other resulting in happier and healthier lives.
This week, why not make it your goal to outshine the darkness that fear brings? Go out of your way to make other people feel good about themselves, go out of your way to take interest in someone else’s life. Show some love for the people around you and I guarantee that your world will change and more light will be let in!
Have a great start to the week!
Stay Strong and Keep Moving.
The last blog post was a huge success! If you missed it then click here to have a look. Honestly I am humbled by the amount of people that read and reacted to Brian's story and I hope that you can enjoy the read as much as I enjoyed writing it.
It was a pretty heavy one to write because I had to condense an amazingly heart felt story into something that would keep the reader engaged and inspired.
If you know me or have been following the blog for a while then you'll know that I also try to keep things light hearted and fun because life is meant to be enjoyed.
Here is another video that I made last week with Ben (from the blog too) - we wanted to continue the shovel dance progression to make you laugh and prepare you for a great weekend! Sit back and enjoy the video and remember that without you reading this blog then there wouldn't be a blog to write.
I thank you every single day for being on the other side of your screen and showing support for what I do, feel free to share my work with others and let's make the world a more positive and happy place - even if you have to dress like a gorilla to do it!
Stay Strong and Keep Moving!
It’s not every day that you get to sit down and hear a story that rocks you back to reality. I have posted a lot of people’s stories on this blog and I am eternally grateful to everyone that has gotten on board to share such inspiring and wonderful things with the world.
There are two reasons that I keep the motivational and inspirational stories coming:
Sometimes the most inspiring people in the world don’t have a voice or a means to get their message across.
Today I will share a story of a guy named Brian, go grab a coffee/ tea/ herbal tea and a healthy snack and get settled in, because it’s a good one!
My manager introduced Brian to me on his first day as a personal trainer and said that we had a fellow South African joining the team. (I'm from Zimbabwe and Botswana though, but we won’t get caught up in the detail). So there I was, expecting a South African accent and some good African banter but when I heard him speak with an Irish accent my hopes were dashed, clearly he hadn’t lived in SA for a long time.
I never really gave his story more thought until last week. Sure, we trained together a few times in the gym and we always had a good laugh in the staff room; but when he told me that he had an interesting story I was keen to hear it, we arranged a time to sit down and, this is what I learned…
Brian was born in South Africa, his early years were spent in Pretoria and Botswana. His mother worked all the time and he didn’t know his father, which meant he spent the first few years of his life with his grandmother. When Brian turned 8 years old his mother had a dream, the dream was for her family to have the best life imaginable, she had saved all their money and spent it on plane tickets to Ireland… The start of a new life.
They sought asylum in Ireland and managed to get a place to stay, life was hard, but it wasn’t the same kind of hard that they experienced in Africa.
“I remember coming to Ireland and being able to have cornflakes every day, we could never afford them in South Africa. We even had a fake fire in the house - it’s those little things that made me happy.”
They stayed in asylum for a long time and lived with the knowledge that they could be sent back to South Africa at any point, but that didn’t stop them from making friends and creating a community. Years passed and Brian became the ‘popular kid’ at school, life was moving forwards until one day his family were told that they were being sent back to South Africa.
The support for his family to stay was overwhelming and an appeal to the government from the community meant that his family’s case was re-visited. They were allowed to stay and their lives became more stable. Brian’s family were able to move into their own house and for the first time ever Brian had his own room. Life was improving in great ways, and Brian maintained his status as the popular kid. Going out, partying and having a good time with very little in the way of responsibilities.
School was something that he never took too seriously, apart from a little rugby here and there. Despite being liked by all his friends, he was often told that he wouldn't amount to anything. He couldn’t read very well and as a result didn’t want to worry about his future.
When Brian turned 18 his family took a trip back to South Africa, the first time he would set foot in his home country in 10 years and it was a trip that would change his life forever.
“Seeing my family back home with nothing, I MEAN NOTHING, was a serious shock… I couldn’t believe that life could be so unfair, I couldn’t believe how much I had compared to what they had."
Stepping off the plane back in Ireland Brian knew that he had the chance to change, his thoughts had shifted, he decided to act. He went to college and qualified as a personal trainer, the whole time feeding his mind with the understanding that he was trying to help his family have a better life. He wanted to pursue rugby with everything he had and joined a team that was about 45 minutes away from his house; he needed to develop his skills and experience.
Brian’s schedule went from going out and having a good time to working full time in a gym, training and travelling 1 hour and 30 minutes on a bus 3 - 4 times a week just to make the rugby team and boost his confidence. Some weeks he would travel all the way to a game just to sit on the bench and while most people would find that deflating, it simply pumped him up even more. He had to work hard because his family needed him to. It’s funny because when Brian was re-counting the story it felt like a scene from 8-Mile when Eminem is riding the bus and getting his mind right for things to happen.
This weekly grind continued and slowly Brian made more and more progress; though the team coaches didn’t see it Brian had more heart than anyone in the team. He put himself forward for trials for IT of Carlow, a prestigious rugby school where he wanted to push his rugby career to the next level. The trials went well, but after waiting weeks to find out about his future he was turned away…
“Not enough experience, that was it, I had worked so hard I realised that I just had to work harder."
More determined than ever Brian upped his efforts, trained smarter and got in even better shape. The next time the trials came round he was ready, giving it everything he had - the coaches called him in directly after the trials, he thought they would turn him away again but instead they offered him a place. BOOM! The dream became reality!
His time at Carlow was a real test for his resilience, he was in the school but not in the 1st team. The grind continued, whilst other players stayed out and partied Brian was putting his dream first. Despite all his efforts the first year didn’t go well. He started for the 3rd team, got up into the 2nd team only to be taken off the field after 10 minutes in one of the final games.
“I couldn’t understand why... I was working so hard to make my family proud, to chase my dream and nothing was working…. I just couldn’t seem to make a good enough impression on the coaches."
Brian didn’t go back to IT of Carlow, in fact there was a point where he thought about giving up on the dream. He couldn’t bring himself to do that though, he had to keep moving forward, he couldn’t let his family down. Looking elsewhere for a route to success Brian was offered a rugby scholarship to America, all he had to do was raise money to get out there. The grind began again… Working, training and pushing himself to be the best. Despite his efforts he couldn’t raise enough money to get out to America and had to pass on the opportunity. Even after playing in all the practice sessions and games at IT of Carlow and being on point with his training he struggled to make an impact with the coaches back on his local team.
It was around this time that Brian started questioning himself, more importantly for this phase in his journey he started to question his faith.
He had given his life to pursue rugby to chase his dream of being a success, to make his family proud and he didn’t have much to show for it. Sure the experience was great, but where was his prize?
Brian realised that the whole time he had been working towards something for himself, he had been praying for his own success, he had not been hugely mindful of everyone else in the world. Call this another shift in thought, or transformation, but he realised that you cannot just keep taking and wanting in this life, you have to give back. Brian joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and has not looked back since.
His shift in mentality brought with it the success that he longed for, he gave himself over to a cause greater than himself and as a result was contacted by the Birmingham Bees rugby team, a semi-professional side and after a few weeks of decision making Brian was signed to the team and working at Virgin Active as a personal trainer.
Now, I’ve never written about religion in my blog posts mainly because I am not particularly religious, but it is an integral part of Brian’s story. You may read this and think that by giving yourself over to God you will receive riches and that is not what happened to Brian, he simply opened himself up to the world and focused on something greater than himself.
There is something truly peaceful about the way Brian looks at his life since he became a Mormon, he looks at the world as a place for giving, that peace that washed over him brings out a huge smile and re-assures him that life is not about proving yourself to others, more about being there for others and bringing them the peace that they deserve.
From being a small kid in South Africa who didn’t even have his own bedroom (or cornflakes) to living in England, playing semi-professional rugby and being a personal trainer at a leading health club in the country. How is that for a story!
He has never given up on himself or his family. He has transformed his life through focus, dedication and most importantly his faith. His story doesn’t just stop there, the change in mindset lead him to his next phase of his journey. Brian will be going on his mission (2 years away from rugby, friends and family) to help others become the best they can be.
"I’m giving God 2 years of my life because he has given me 22 years. At one stage all I could think about was me, now it's about others. I want my nephew and sister to be able to go to tesco and buy cornflakes!"
Brian's story is humbling and motivating. Some people want money and riches, Brian wants his family to be happy and to enjoy the simple things in life. Through his fitness journey and his faith, Brian has found his path in life, and whilst some people might not understand his choice to leave rugby behind, I certainly do.
I hope this story makes you proud of Brian, but most importantly I hope it helps you take the values we have learnt from him and apply them to your life.
Have a great day! Stay strong and keep moving, and if you'd like to follow Brian on Instagram then click here!
In March 2015 I made a video and put it up on YouTube - I called it Confidence and Calisthenics… Not a bad video if you ask me, I had no script, I stood in front of a camera and mumbled and jumbled my way through my points. I’d like to think that I have matured a bit since then, kind of like a fine wine… I remember making that video thinking, “Man, I’m a badass! I did clapping press ups and EVERYTHAAAAANG!”
Truth be told, if you compare that video to other fitness professionals out there you might chuckle to yourself. I was however the fittest I have ever been at that stage and the video is just a milestone in my journey. I started looking back over my old videos, mostly to cringe at my meekness, but to try and see how freely I was moving my body. The point I came to in the original video (you can view it here) is that you should never stop striving to be the best you that you can be. You should embrace the journey and believe in yourself.
It is great to set goals and get going in a direction for change, but understand that goals change, life moves and flows and I found that I had to be open to that. When I finished my first 90 day program I realised that my goals had shifted, fitness had become a journey not a destination.
Too many people join a gym or start a home workout DVD with the idea of getting to a finishing point. What I came to realise, and what I hope I can share with you, is that you don’t need to draw a line in the sand to stop at when you’ve got the whole beach to enjoy!
Everything starts with that little bit of confidence though, that little bit of self belief that says, ‘today I am going to do something positive.’ My confidence took a huge leap forward when I decided that I was going to keep striving for FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT for my body. It is the foundation of all my sessions with all my clients.
With that said, I have spliced together a video below of my progression over a year. Sure some of the moves are different, but it is quite crazy to see the freedom I have with my body now. I haven’t made this video to be boastful, I made it with the intention of sharing my journey to show what is possible if you just have a little faith in yourself and you keep working on your journey to the strongest you.
No matter what you are going through right now, just put one foot in front of the other and keep believing in yourself because your journey will turn out to be magical!
STAY STRONG and KEEP MOVING!
Have you ever had a moment in life where something happens at just the right time? Not the perfectly timed photobomb or the funny cat video that someone forwards to cheer you up (though both are equally awesome). I’m talking about something that you come across that really resonates with your soul… I have had a lot of those moments, especially over the last few years. The one that sticks out the most was when I stumbled upon a book, possibly the best book I have ever read, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
At the time this book caught me in a transitional phase, coming out of being obese and into my new skin. I had to learn how to deal with the confidence issues that are related to being overweight. It was scary facing the world as a newly skinny person, the reason being that everyone I met from the moment I hit my goal weight just saw me as Brendan. They didn’t know me from before.
It’s the same as if you are trying to deal with your weight-loss journey, or you’ve just come out of a really tough time in your life. You need to put on a brave face because life goes on, it doesn’t wait for you to catch up emotionally. There is a natural mourning process with anything that you leave behind, especially if it was part of your life for a long time. Now this might sound a bit silly to the average bear (especially since bears can’t really understand English) but I had to mourn my weight-loss. I had to deal with the friendships that it ruined because of my attitude; I had to deal with the emotional attachment to food and more importantly I had to realise that coming out of my shell was the next step in my journey of personal development.
I started to read Dale’s book and then stopped, I went out, bought a highlighter and some post it tabs and then carried on reading it. Every single page had something of relevance to my life at the time; it just made perfect sense to me. I realised that handling difficult situations and building new friendships and relationships is actually very easy, in fact a lot of the things that I read are things that humans do some of the time, but not all of the time.
So what I thought I would do today is share 3 principles that are covered in his book. Then in 2 weeks time I will share another three (hopefully by then you’ll have bought your own copy and will be applying these principles to your life).
There you have my first three, now you might be sitting there thinking; “how does this relate to fitness?” Well, everything in your life is woven together to make you who you are; if you strengthen your body through a tough, challenging workout you strengthen your resolve. If you develop your mind and personal skills you are making your mind fitter and stronger to face the world!
See if you can apply those principles into your life this week, the 1st one was my biggest challenge to myself.
Have a wonderful day! Stay Strong and Keep Moving!
For the longest time I truly believed that people were inherently annoying, idiotic and downright useless. I'm sure that everyone has fallen victim to thinking things like that, especially with some things that happen in the world these days.
It took a long time for me to realise that despite the bad in the world there is a tremendous amount of good that happens every single day! It took me even longer to realise that instead of complaining and being unhappy with things, I could change and be a positive influence rather than a negative one. You'll be able to read more about this in next week's Monday post... It will be a good one, trust me.
If you can make someone smile, just once in a day, you could potentially save their lives. You could make their day go from being rubbish to being out of this world! You have the power inside of you to make someone laugh you just have to be open to making it happen.
A few weeks ago I posted my shovel dance on Facebook, the video got so many comments and laughs from people that I decided to film another one with Ben (who I have written about before). We got even more laughs and questioned by so many people to do another one..... So we did...... Now I'm no Stephen Spielberg, but I think we did a good job at this one. The message is simple, THE SHOVEL DANCE WILL MAKE YOU SMILE! Simple. If you don't believe me, just try it... Here is a video to help you along! If you really want to make people smile then film it and share it online!
Now that you have had a laugh you can start your weekend off on the right foot! Remember to go out there, STAY STRONG, KEEP MOVING and of course.... KEEP SHOVELING!
I can’t really remember the exact date that I met Lucy, it was probably towards the end of 2015, I know I was working a late shift at the gym and I’m pretty sure she was doing some stretching, possibly some handstands. My job at that time was to tidy up and maintain positive member experiences; in other words, talk to people...
Lucy and I got to chatting, I asked what she did and she explained that she was a Vaulter. At first I had absolutely no idea what Vaulting meant, I assumed some sort of gymnastics, and I wasn’t far off… If you are like I was at the time of the conversation, then I think you need to take a minute and watch this video below.
How awesome is that right!? Lucy had told me to check out videos of her on YouTube, I was seriously impressed. Vaulting makes the calisthenics stars of today look like they just aren’t trying hard enough. Who needs a static bar to do a handstand on when you have a moving horse?
A few weeks ago I managed to catch up with Lucy at the gym and she told me that she is now ranked No.1 in the world for Vaulting. I remember saying to myself at that point, ‘there is a great story here, I need to know more.’ And so this post began…
In speaking to Lucy and reading up on Vaulting I realised one major thing, I do not know very much about horses or vaulting. Sure, I have written pieces about weight-loss and golf before, but it has always been something tangible that I have experience with. So with that in mind I thought I would break it down for you into some simple facts about vaulting and Lucy to gather some context.
So... Lucy is now ranked No. 1 in the world for Vaulting which is amazing! To anyone who has just met her it might seem like a flawless step into success however she has had to make huge decisions and commitments to be the best version of herself. At one stage she was travelling with her parents 6 hours up to Scotland and 6 hours down again each weekend to be eligible to compete, whilst juggling her GCSEs. She even still maintained her positive and light hearted nature when telling me that. Not to mention the health impacts of what she does; a fall in her sport could be the end of her career. One injury nearly blinded her when her horse’s mane whipped up and cut her cornea.
Then there is the preparation work that goes into a show, getting the horses from the UK across to Europe, making sure all the routines are planned which means being in in peak physical condition to compete. The mind plays a huge role, but so does technique, margins in the sport are very small and the slightest imperfection can have big repercussions. I think the thing that amazes me the most is that Lucy starts learning from the ground up, how to move on the floor, then on a barrel (pictured below), only when the moves are perfect on a barrel can they be taken over to the horse. Some moves that Lucy is learning now might not even feature in her routine for another year, simply because of the time it takes to get it right.
In talking with Lucy I got the sense that she was truly in a rhythm, a child at heart in many ways; but also someone who knows how to get the best out of her training. She has developed confidence and maturity through trial and error. Her mentor, Louise Hazel helped in-still balance in her life, she helped Lucy plan her weeks every Sunday night, a habit that has stuck with her and helped her reach for her dreams. She draws inspiration from Bill Beswick, a sports psychologist, and she quoted him straight away when talking about her sport, “To be the best you have to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations.”
It is not until the last few years that Lucy has really reached her true potential; for a long time she wanted her mother, Liz, to Lunge for her (lunging the horse is 25% of the process, a lunger controls the pace of the horse in canter.) Liz has had to overcome her own fears in order to help Lucy along her path. For a long time, Liz was too scared to fail her family. It took a loss in the family for Liz to realise that the best thing she could do is face her fears, take the reins (pun intended) and help lead Lucy to become best version of herself.
“You can be in the best shape physically, but on the day and in that environment if you bottle it, then it’s over.”
Patience, determination and strong character are all the things that stand out when you talk to someone striving to be the best, and Lucy is no exception to that rule. I have always believed that it is not how you handle the smooth seas that determines how good you are as a sailor, rather what happens when the waves become bigger.
Lucy has been through the training, the early mornings, the mental preparation, managing a full time job, the long days, the travel, and injuries. She has battled mentally and physically to compete, she has had set backs and faced people who find her physique intimidating. She has spent 20 years pursuing her passion and now trains in strength and conditioning 3 times a week, with sprint work mixed in for good measure. She vaults on her horse, Pitucelli, 3 times a week for 1.5 hours at a time. There is stretching, yoga and even a vaulting barrel at home that all add to Lucy’s routine, this, as well as the team and family that surround her with determination and positive energy are what go into making a world No.1.
I’m sure that there have been times when she has felt like giving up. I know from my own journey in fitness that there are days when all you want to do is lie in bed and watch TV with a big bowl of junk food. The truth is that no matter what you do you will always have to face things that you don’t want to do, they wait for you along the path to your dreams. What defines your character is how you negotiate the route, how you manage your plan to your dream. That’s where true inspiration lies!
That’s why I thought Lucy’s story is such a great piece of inspiration, she is a great example of what WE ALL can achieve if we have the fortitude to stick to the plan through thick and thin!
Now I hope you can go out there and have a fantastic start to you week!
STAY STRONG and KEEP MOVING!
Today I thought I would share something that I don’t talk about with a lot of people. It is one of the major reasons that I write this blog, one of the major reasons that I have a quirky sense of humour and why I try to make people smile and be positive each day.
When I was in high school I was bullied for a couple of years; it got to the point where I had to leave the school I was at. At the time it felt like the whole world was against me and I actually feared going out in public for a while simply because I was scared that I would see someone from school.
It was a pretty rough time and I’m sure that if I were to go back in time and be a fly on the wall it probably wouldn’t be as bad as I thought it was. I truly believe that going through that stage in my life made me stronger; it made me acutely aware of the kinds of people and personalities that exist in the world. It took a while but it made me understand that there is no good reason to hide who you are. We are all unique characters and I believe that we have the ability to be a positive force in each other’s lives. The reason I bring this up is because I made this video below the other day and posted it on my social media for all my friends. There have been a few funny videos of late where I have been dancing; they have all made people comment and laugh, I figured that this one would be no different. It is a one minute video so give it a watch, if you haven’t seen it already.
The first feedback I got about the video after posting it was really negative, quite hurtful comments, not your average troll or hater; these words cut deep. The comments almost made me take the video down. For a moment I regressed to my teenage self. After some deliberation I decided to keep the video up because I didn’t want compromise my values. My values for life and Raw Motion Fitness are to make the world a happier, healthier place, a place where people feel better and enjoy life. Does the video check those boxes? Yes. Is the video a little stupid and silly? Yes.
I feel if I can make people laugh and relax, even if they are laughing at me not with me then my job is done. You see, ever since my experience at high school I have always strived to be myself. I have always strived to get a long with most people. I was being silly in the video, but that is part of who I am; and my Ukulele skills…. Well they are far from musical but I try not to take myself too seriously all of the time. If we take life to seriously all the time then we are in danger of losing touch with ourselves.
For a split second I let someone else dictate my thought processes and I doubted myself, there is a lesson in that. You have to believe in yourself in order to be yourself, you don’t need much self belief to start building momentum. Sure, you’ll have set backs in confidence throughout life but ultimately if you can create a positive energy in your life then that will always trump the negative energy.
My mission to you this fine day is to go out there and be yourself, if you don’t know how then just start with having some fun. As long as your intentions are good and you have a smile on your face then you can’t go wrong!
I’ll catch up with you in the next blog post where I have a special story to share with you.
Tune in again soon, STAY STRONG and KEEP MOVING!
It is about 2 years ago now since I came across video of a man trying to make himself better. Larry Evans, lead a charge, fighting obesity and inspiring thousands of people through his positive energy. Sadly, Larry passed away a couple of weeks ago.
Larry started to change his life in 2014 when he got to 800lbs in weight, that’s 57 stone (363 kilograms) which is quite large to say the least. Some people who get to that size end up giving up on themselves, but not Larry. He took his time, put one foot in front of another and started a journey of change that would touch people's lives around the world. He embraced a mantra of getting fit and trying to be a positive role model for those struggling with their own weight. Larry used his Facebook presence to inspire others to join his fight against obesity. Check out his video below.
When was the last time you saw someone that size in a gym? Such an inspiration that his video went viral and he began to get a following of supporters, myself included.
Larry managed to get his weight down to 640lbs over a two year stretch - that’s a loss of 11 stone (73 kilograms) - which is the same as losing a whole person. I recently wrote to his family and his trainer Chris Booth to pass on my condolences and from what I can tell it has been a tremendously tough time for them. Larry has left behind a strong family unit, and I have no doubt that they will get through the next few weeks, simply because they have spent the last two years training with Larry and developing the resilience that he inspired.
I think if we could all ask Larry what he would want us to do right now I reckon he would say that we should keep fighting to be the best we can be. Keep inspiring other people around us to live their lives in a happy, healthy way. Sure, Larry had his haters, Larry also had his trolls, everyone will at some point in life; the thing he did so well was he rose above it and kept putting out a positive message to the world. The kind of message that reminds us that there are amazing people in this world doing amazing things with their lives.
Larry could have easily given up on himself when he weighed in at 800lbs, he could have just carried on with his lifestyle and made himself bigger. He chose to face life head on and he made amazing progress. In my two years following his page I saw him do yoga videos, swimming, cycling and of course bench pressing.
If he could be active and enjoy himself then there is no reason why we can’t do the same.
I was really sad to hear he had passed, but something lingers and outweighs the sadness in a way; it is the fact that he left such a positive impression on the world. He has left a legacy of positive and active people who will keep his dream of shrinking obesity alive. One of his phrases that I think stands out the most is “Get Fit, Don’t Quit!” Simple and to the point, he had a dream to see others achieve great results, the best thing we can do today is help honour that dream and keep our mind sharp and our bodies healthy.
Let's all go out there, have a great week and live our lives to the best that we can! Let's make Larry proud!
Stay Strong Keep Moving and show your support for Larry's dream by sharing his story followed by the hash tag - #teamlarry!
