    “We improve ourselves by victories over ourself.
    There must be contests, and you must win.”

    Edward Gibbon

    The quote above in relation to our gym:

    At first, the victory is just getting in the door.
    Soon the victory becomes completing the tasks of the day, remaining upright at the end, and being ready for more.

    My opinion: Life is brutal, and I have the utmost respect for anyone that has the fortitude to endure it, and the dedication to self-betterment that drives them to put time each day towards making progress in it.

    In life, and in training:

    If you show up focused, work hard, and don’t quit, the victories you are celebrating now will seem simple compared to those you will soon achieve.
