I couldn't stand up

Michael Buckley

I woke up one morning in excruciating pain. I couldn’t stand up straight. My body was broken and needed to be fixed.

What caused my injury? Benching too much weight? Too many pull ups? Bad form on my deadlifts? All of the above?

And what could I do to fix it?

Turns out, exercise was not the cause of my injury. But it was the fix.

Grandma didn’t do CrossFit

Michael Buckley

I think everyone should exercise. Now that’s just my opinion-- an opinion backed up by decades of scientific research, thousands of clinical studies and supported by every major health organization in the world—but an opinion, nonetheless.

The truth is, skipping the gym or a bike ride or a walk, won’t cause you to immediately keel over and croak. You can survive without exercise. Yes, you can survive without exercise, but at what cost?

Some folks hate exercise. They don’t think they need it. They say things like the following…

3 FITNESS PHRASES THAT SHOULD DIE

Michael Buckley

FITNESS PEOPLE (Trainers, coaches, IG Fitness “models,” etc.):  It’s hard enough for people to find the time, energy and motivation to exercise.  

As a personal trainer or coach, the job is to advise and motivate others. Our words matter. We need to choose them carefully.

 

We need to stop using the following phrases. We’re scaring people.

STOP SMOKING CRACK. START WORKING OUT.

Michael Buckley

Whatever you’re addicted to (that thing you can’t stop doing that wastes your time and F-s your life up in lots of little ways and/ or a few big ways), whatever it may be: drugs, video games, booze, your phone, work, food, porn, shitty relationships, buying useless shit online, whatever it is... substitute that shit with exercise.

Buck Fear

Michael Buckley

Doubts, fear, insecurities. We all have them. A small dose of each serves a purpose; they keep us in check, they are what keep us from acting recklessly.

Old Man Winter is a Bastard

Michael Buckley

Let’s face it: Winter kind of sucks. For me, it’s a goal-killer. The thought of carrying groceries through the Polar vortex makes ordering a pizza extra appealing. The dozen or so layers of clothing required to get from Point A to Point B make me want to hibernate inside my apartment. I find the bare trees and grey skies depressing. It’s a fight to remain motivated, and there are times that Old Man Winter, that cruel bastard gets the best of me.

My feelings about Winter are similar to the feelings a lot of folks have about exercise. There are so many deterrents to get started (or keep going) the little struggles; injuries, age, the soreness, the time requirement.

Whatever your goal-killers are, you are going to need some hard-hitting tools to overcome them and take action.

One of these tools is perspective.

Summer, we miss you already

Michael Buckley

When I left my house this AM it was 5 degrees F but, according to weather.com, “feels like” -14 degrees. (I always wonder how that number.) This winter, I am determined to stay summer lean all season. In the past, I have put on weight when the weather gets cold. I walk less, I get the winter blues and tend to self-medicate by eating junk, and my workouts suffer as a result. This year I have a plan in place to beat the Winter Blues and its side effects.

1. Daily gratitude lists to put things in perspective so I don’t let the dreary weather make me feel dreary

2. Focusing on how good eating well makes me feel and function. (As opposed to obsessing on the foods I shouldn’t eat.)

3. I bought a super warm, obnoxiously big winter coat so I can walk from session to session rather than taking the subway or cabbing it.

This video sucks. But you should watch it.

Michael Buckley

I have been helping my personal training clients get started, keep going and reach goals beyond their expectations For a decade. A large reason for my success as a personal trainer lies in my ability to frame exercise in an effective, meaningful and, most improtantly, long-lasting way and I wanted to get my message out to the world.
