2011 My Year in Fitness

Well, 2011 has come and gone and many of you may be waking up this morning with a hangover. I never really understood why people would want to start a year off that way, but I guess that's the fun(?) of New Year's...

Now that we are starting a new year, it is sometimes nice to reflect back on the previous year to think of moments you were proud of and other times where you wish you maybe made better choices. The same can be done for health and fitness, and that is where I feel many people end up making their New Year's Resolutions.

2011 was a great year for me, I managed to complete many of my fitness goals that I set out for myself. On top of that, I spent a good part of 2011 studying for, and attaining, my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification from the NSCA. If all of these aforementioned things weren't enough, my wife and I also welcomed our first-born child Evan into our family.

To quickly summarize all of my achievements from this year, I have listed my events and accomplishments below:


-Started my first-ever "Constant Confusion" hybrid consisting of mixing and matching workouts so that no 2 weeks were the same.


-Completed "Constant Confusion"

 -Started studying for my CSCS
