Shawn’s a good friend and hands down one of the “strongest” and most energetic guys I know. He’s also an incredible blend of philosopher and spiritual body builder—bringing meditation into the gym while enhancing—not compromising—the intensity of his training.
This is definitely the most powerful book on transforming your strength—the true vitality and power with which you show up in the world—that I’ve ever read. If you’re tired of simply pushing weights around mindlessly, would like to bring mindfulness to your time at the gym and are interested in transforming your life from the inside out to create more strength than ever before, Amazon the book right now and get it on.
For now, let’s take a quick peak at some of my favorite ‘Big Ideas’ from the book—everything from creating a “base camp” to get yourself ready for transformation (which, as we’ll learn, is different than mere “change”) to working out your gratitude muscle (what “fitness” book have you read lately that talks about that?). His “HIIT” and “FIT” training principles are revolutionary and, if you follow his suggestions, it’s literally impossible not to transform.
Let’s jump in. And, of course, remember: Aim high. Aim for strength.
