    I like the rest of this website, but this video is a waste of time. It is just a man running around and lifting weights with a corny Tony Robbins type motivational speech. It’s just really an advert for another website.

      Thanks for the input Tiffany – Yes I do agree with you. This would be more aimed at fitness/working out style of motivation.

    This guy has incredible endurance.(If…they didn’t cut the film a few times and let him rest) However he talks about going beyond uncomfortable? Why? It isn’t fun anymore when you always put your total maximum effort out. Our bodies weren’t made for that and yours will break down with injuries if you are younger, to heart attacks and chipped bones and arthritis when you are over 45. I think this video would be perfect for a person trying to excel at athletics. But I can tell you from personal experience at age 54, I have burned myself out so severely in doing all that we saw him do and martial arts as well, that at 54, I so much want to participate in these “sports(?) and my soul is screaming…”No, no. You are not 25 anymore. Do something to make money, put all that effort into something besides looking good. And do the people who make trips out to the farms to get fresh grown produce……..how much longer than us will they really live? Days? A few months? 2 years? And if you do decide to train like that, have you asked yourself if you can do it as a life-style? Permanently? Because if you said yes, but your body says no, where will your self worth come from? I like in Florida, and we have more orthopedic doctors here than almost anywhere. In fact we have almost more doctors period here than almost anywhere. The truth still remains eternal…..On any morning when you watch a bunch of old and older Chinese practicing soft relaxing Tai chi the park, they will live much higher quality lives in their winter years than most Americans. Moderation has its place…..but only if you want to live a long life. As an Anthony Robbins Intervention Specialist I try to get people to take a hard look at why they feel they must beat the world every day. Sometimes that is the correct strategy. Don’t get me wrong. But often, I ask them..in the end, who will remember all your hard work in the gym or the ballet studio or the clay pots unless you get rich and famous, and to do your thing just for rich and famous is, well….. So many of us had parents who pushed us like that,especially to succeed in school. Can they ever make up for the social life we missed or if God forbid we did NOT make the Deans list or get the scholarship? Risk/reward ratio has always got to be there in every single thing you do. Then its easy to make decisions.

      Great contribution mark, I really appreciate the comment.

      I think we have to always keep a balance, and only do what you FEEL is best for you. When we burn out, there is no balance.

      Passion and enjoyment is key to everything you do. That’s why the old ladies doing tai chi will propably have a higher quality of life, because they enjoy it. People push themselves and do things they don’t want to do for external validation, which misses the whole point.
