The video section is up, and the beginning of the ebook

I finally have the video section up on the website. Currently there are a couple videos up that you have already seen on the blog: The one of Cindy at the Dish, and the one of myself doing some pre-deployment training.
I have started writing what will be a short e-book on my training philosophy, as well as the difference between cosmetic fitness and true fitness. Basically it contains all the stuff I usually put in e-mails or on the blog. If you've ever heard me go into one of my endless spiels (you know, the ones where you're thinking "God, how long can one person talk?) you've heard a lot of what will be in there.
There is a movement occurring out there in the world of fitness against all of the machines and the endless pedaling on the stationary bike, a movement that wants you to actually reap rewards for all of the work you put out aside from maybe losing a few pounds. A movement that knows it is more important to have strong joints and good knees, true strength and strong cardio than a six pack. A movement that doesn't really care about the 'perception'. When we are told we should just give the client what they want and not what they need, we start trying to figure out how to make you understand what you need, instead of wasting your time. It isn't just about wasting your time either, it's about getting the most out of your life. Would you rather be healthy, active, and physically capable at 60 or even 70, or have a cool photo of the six pack you used to have, shot knees, and a stooped back?
Yeah, me too.
It isn't easy to be part of this movement. You have to crack a book. You have to study, try new techniques, learn all you can, and be honest with yourself. You have to be able to admit to yourself that maybe the way you have been doing things wasn't the most efficient, and that's ok. Better to figure out your flaws and fix them than spend the rest of your life walking the wrong way down a one way road because of stupid pride.
So let's get to it.
