Record Breaking Fitness’ approach is based one simple fact, we as humans are competitive by nature. Our competitive spirit is observable in a variety of situations and is not limited by age or gender. Whether speeding up this morning to close the gap between you and the car in front of you, comparing your test score with a classmates, or watching a child tighten their grip on the toy they were asked to share, there is no question we are hardwired to be competitive.
Possibly while reading this you recalled experiences where a competitive environment yielded negative behavior. One of the many positive aspects of competition is the opportunity for character development. A person’s true character is often revealed not when they win, rather when they lose. Competitive situations also provide the opportunity to teach the difference between comparing yourself to others, versus your own best self. No matter how good you are, eventually someone will be better. That’s why Record Breaking Fitness focuses on achieving your personal best. Use others records to inspire you, while striving to become your own best self.
John Wooden got it right with his definition of success, “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.”
Events have been selected to condition yourself with the goal of achieving your personal best. Some of the events like crab walk – cat crawl and medicine ball throws are unique to this program. Other events, such as standing long jump and the lane agility drill are tested during professional sports league combines like the National Basketball Association (NBA), National Football League (NFL), and Major League Soccer (MLS). This allows you to compare to your own best self, and to the best in the world.
Now that you understand the basics of this program it is time to start breaking records.
