Stay the Course


After brainstorming some slogans to use for hoodies, the one we kept coming back to was ’STAY THE COURSE.’  It really resonated with me, and I’d like to explain why:

In my opinion, most things that are worth having don’t come easy.  I value hard work and perseverance when it comes to pursuing your goals—qualities that I feel are less and less common with time.

The idea behind STAY THE COURSE transcends your gym ethic.  Whether you’re working towards a degree, sticking to or making changes to your food profile, working your way up a corporate ladder, working on being a better version of yourself, learning a trade or skill, improving your fitness, or raising your kids, there are plenty of opportunities to deviate from your plan and take the ‘easy’ way out.

Your life is a journey—both in mind and body—and you will always be faced with obstacles.  I think every opportunity you allow yourself to take the easy way out whittles down your character.  It cheapens your work and ultimately lessens who you become.

It’s easy to deviate from your plan, and it’s easy to cut corners.  I like being around people who value following through, which is why I ultimately chose ’STAY THE COURSE’ to represent our community here at CFD.  Wear it with pride and let it serve as a reminder to practice what you preach and let your actions reflect and support your priorities, both in the gym and outside of it!

BTW…Today is the last day to get your hoodie orders in, so if you like what you see, shoot me an email and let me know what size you’d like!
