2015 has arrive, and another fitness challenge is on the horizon. This year is the year! I believe I say this every year but I feel that I’m more ready than ever to see what kind of results I can produce. I’ve done the hynesfitnesschallenge, in 2011 (no results), 2012 (ok results), 2013 (excellent results), 2014 (ok/not great results), and now this will be the fifth year here in 2015. To date 2013 was hands down my best year. I look back on this challenge and it’s starting to make me wonder how I can be in great shape in May and slowly fall off all the way until December.
Current status: I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been at about 250 lbs. Turning into a bigger man with a 8 to 5 desk job. I’m in ok shape, my lifestyle is somewhat active, and energy level is mediocre.
Why will this year be “the” year: Well first and foremost I now live on the beach in LA, so I’m in a most more fit area than Seattle. There is basically a month of winter here which consists of a cold 50 degrees (still feels nice to me). So I’m surrounded by people that love to stay in shape, and getting outside is easy to do on the daily!
At this point I know what it takes. I’ve started to hone in on my nutrition and I’m a member at two different gyms. I have my workout and nutrition planned out and it’s not as overwhelming as it used to be.
Also, this year I have challenged the master. I challenged Kurt Hynes to see who can have the best transformation and we put some money on it as well as a creative bet. So I have the ultimate motivation of taking down the reigning champ!
If you want to get in on the Hynes Fitness Challenge you can go to hynesfitnesschallenge.com it’s a ton of fun and will help keep you motivated when times get tough. Plus it’s a way to compete and possibly win some money! If you have any questions let me know!
