2.  Momentum.

It is an indisputable law of physics that an object in motion will stay in motion. The same is true with fitness. The more days you have under your belt, the easier it is to get up and go again. If you are serious about making a real change in your lifestyle for 2014, you’ll have a better chance of doing so if you hit the ground running. By the time everyone else is ready to start fresh, you will be in mid-season form.

1.  Because you can.

There will never be a better reason to exercise than this. You are a living, breathing, functioning human being with no excuses; the sooner you get out there and start acting like it the better. Your body has no concept of dates or times, so the idea that it will be easier for you to start training January 1st is plainly ridiculous. All you are doing is putting it off. Make your resolution, do your research, and get excited about starting as soon as possible.

Check out Napua!! Name: Napualokelani (Napua or Pua) Age: 37 Why did you choose to do the Powerlifting Seminar? I liked the way lifting weights made me feel as an active teenager and having not lifted on a regular basis for many years, I wanted to revisit it and get stronger. What were 3 of your goals when starting powerlifting? Gain strength, build muscle & find a new program that would enhance my overall fitness goals. Have you achieved those goals? Definitely. What type of body composition changes have you seen since starting powerlifting with CrossFit? Although I’m not as lean as I’d like to be YET, I have seen great changes in the definition of my upper arms & thighs the most. And my ass is sitting higher & tighter than it ever has in my life! What are your goals for the future in fitness, CrossFit and powerlifting? My goals for powerlifting are to get stronger, build endurance, build more muscle and perhaps compete in powerlifting events locally. I’d also be interested in encouraging women to powerlift and articulate the benefits. My main goal for CrossFit, specifically over the next year, are to attack my weaknesses, which usually involve bodyweight skills and drop weight via a combination of powerlifting and high intensity interval training (met cons). Anything else you want to add: Big Mahalo to Coach Nick for his guidance, encouragement & programming. I may have complained about certain accessory work while doing them, but trust me, it came from a place of love as I am a believer in the program. Westside Barbell’s methods are proven and #powerliftingwithnick = GAINS! It would be highly inappropriate if I didn’t also acknowledge my fellow power athletes who are all sources of inspiration to me in their own right. Keep on lifting heavy shit!!
