One of the biggest predictors of success, in any area of your life, and especially in area of fitness/weight loss, is dedication. How bad do you really want results and how much work are you willing to put out to see those results? How are you going to overcome obstacles in your life that will inevitably pop up?
Ken is exactly the type of Hard-Charger who DOESN’T let obstacles get in the way of him and his workouts. I’ve had the privilege of working with Ken the last 4 years. He’s one of the original clients of The Body Firm! Ken’s a legendary local attorney, highly in demand and keeps a booked schedule. Yet he never lets lifes demands on him become an excuse for not working out. His consistency is also one of the reasons in his 50’s he has the muscle and body-fat level of a 20yr. old athlete! You can find him training at the Founders Activity Center 8am M/W/F usually with Scott G. Like clockwork.
Long story short. Ken ended up with a torn meniscus in his knee after stepping of a treadmill at a bad angle. This type of injury requires surgery and a good 6-8 week recovery. Surgery was scheduled for Mon. Dec 14th. at 1pm. Most people would take at least two weeks off after surgery.
Ken Hates to miss a workout. Hates it. So he let me know he’d be there Monday 8am. Remember he couldn’t eat or drink after midnight Sunday. So Ken trained 8 am Monday. Had surgery at 1pm. And that photo above was taken after his 8am Wed. workout. Stitches and leg wrapped hip to calf. He still knocked out a blistering 50min. workout. That my friend is Dedication.
And Yes. Ken is the Real Deal.
I’ve been in this game a long long time now. And just when I think I’ve seen just about everything a Fitness Pro could see. This surprised and inspired me!
I would hope we could all aspire to the type of dedication he shows. With it you’ll hit and exceed all of your highest goals. Guaranteed.
Talk to You Later.
