Are you doing what YOU WANT to do?

"Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K. Hessel's life. His breakfast will taste better than any meal you and I have ever tasted."

This is a fantastic scene from Fight Club. Tyler is pointing a gun at a young Chinese clerk that's been working in a shop. Raymond is on his knees and is begging for his life. Tyler asks him what he wanted to do in his life, he wanted to become a veterinarian but didn't ('cause he had to work).

Tyler: I know who you are and where you live Raymond, if you're not on your way to becoming a veterinarian in 3 weeks I will find you and kill you. Now go home...

Raymond ran away in tears. Tyler: "Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K. Hessel's life. His breakfast will taste better than any meal you and I have ever tasted." Isn't this true? :) We start to value things in life only when we almost die. We are grateful for little things only when we understand that life is a gift and we should use it. Do what you want to do, not what other people tell you to do. Live your dream. It's your life.

A man I truly admire once said: "Life is too short to be living somebody else's dreams" - Hugh Hefner (biography) So true... Once you almost die you start viewing things differently. You start to appreciate life more. The food, the people, the nature, yourself. Live every day as if it was your last - many have said this.

The first thing that is stopping all of us to do what we would REALLY want to do in life is FEAR.
Fear is killing us. It is protecting us, but killing us. We are so afraid of public humiliation, what other people think and other completely stupid BS that we end up crazy. We are so afraid from telling people what we think in the face that we are actually destroying ourselves with silence. Lies are killing us, actually. Have you ever thought about what would happen if for 1 day you would be completely honest. No lies, only 100% honesty with people. Straight to the point, in their face, everything you really think. What would happen?

Watch this video:

Life could be beautiful, you could feel free. From yourself. From bs. Just be yourself, no fears, nothing. Life is great actually, it's just all about the way you think and the way you see the world. The glass can be half full or half empty. You always have a choice. So, are you doing what you want to do? Think about this for a moment. Who are you? What is your identity? Remember:

"You are not your job. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fuckin' khakis. You are the all singing all dancing crap of the world"

Ha! The fact that you use a quote from Hugh Hefner...and the fact that you truly admire him...tells me all I need to know. What a joke.

While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

Still not convinced?

A recent study published by the North American Association for the
Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
entire year.

Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
pounds, or more, right?

Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
spent, in my opinion.

So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
less workout time.

The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
burning program.

"I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

"Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
looking for something other than just another weight workout
with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
