“Graduate” to Building Strength and Health.
Conversation with a long-time member of IKSC yesterday about goals: It really brought me to one of the things of which I am most proud.
I feel safe to say that not many are here at IKSC because they are trying to “lose” anything, and there has never been a short-term weight loss challenge or contest. We do lots of monthly challenges, of course, but they are always centered on building some physical skill or healthy eating pattern.
We are here to build positive things, not focus on a negative. I think you’ll find that in doing so, the negatives kind of go away on their own. Things like weight loss challenges are about focusing on some element of dissatisfaction that is to be reduced, not building a positive. Think about that for a minute.
Some fat or weight loss may occur as a result of training appropriately and following a healthy eating pattern, but most are truly here in order to build rather than reduce.
These things are not an accident.
The fitness industry preys on people’s insecurities and self-hatred. This simply does not happen here.
You truly have to enjoy making yourself stronger and healthier to train here. When a new member makes the decision to train, I think of them as a “student” that is here to learn and build something permanent.
This is quite a paradigm shift for many. In a way, I feel that they “graduate” to advanced study at Idaho Kettlebell Strength and Conditioning .
