I was doing a youtube weight training video today and I heard the fitness instructor say,
“Pain = Change”
It was not the first time I had heard this. In fact, I have heard it repeatedly when it comes to change, not only about our bodies, but in any area of our lives.

The start of my journey to competing at the World Championships was not all that long ago, although it seems like a lifetime. My very first kettlebell competition was in Toronto at the Agatsu meet in April of 2015, I remember it vividly because I had lofty goals and ended up gassing out in 6 minutes (of the 10 minute set) by throwing my 12kg bell at the judge after it slipped out of my hand!! Thank goodness I wasn’t disqualified….Read More
In the not too distant past (within my Gen X memory anyway!), information was your key source of power. If you had access to or expert knowledge of a subject you could ensure a competitive advantage.
