We've witnessed an abundance of Old No. 7 this week.  What an incredible week.  Many success stories.  Many stories of folks conquering their demons. 

This FRICKIN week was ROUGH.  Would you call it the ROUGHEST ever?  We would.  

If you finished this week sound off! 

GPP threw down its worst at you this week.  We conspired to come up with a week that wouldn't just be unfinishable ... we tried to make it UNFATHOMABLE.  6 days of absolute and unapologetic, soul crushing workouts were launched at you in ways that were programmed to hurt at the highest level.  You saw that after Monday.  To stack onto you the kind of week we did AFTER the soreness of all the legs we did was just - there's no other word - UNFAIR. But you did it.  We told you it would hurt bad.  We warned you not to go through with it.  We said it would more than evil.  But you still did it.  And that says a lot about you and your character.  

There were two camps that most of us landed in this week.  There should have only been one.  It is the camp where everyone succeeded.  Because you did.  It didn't matter if you couldn't complete all the rounds, reps, weights, or even the workouts.  Those of us who tried to complete all of this week succeeded in the trying alone.  Optimal health has many forms. The only ones who lost out were those who didn't try at all.  Hopefully their day will come soon.  

We have generated a lot of momentum this week.  This momentum can carry.  If you have further health, fitness and improved appearance to pursue DO IT NOW.  Finishing HELLth week has put you in the power position.  There has never been a better time for you to move forward with your goals (also think beyond the physical).  NEVER. 

Let's keep this going.

Each week GPP will be issuing certain challenges that will help you get into incredible shape and health.  If you really want to plow this year, we recommend doing 2 things.

  1. Follow along.
  2. Post.  

It's that simple.  We've learned there is invaluable support in this community.  Incredible community will strengthen you every bit as much as incredible facilities and programming.  We have all three.  

Congratulations on an incredible week.  Stay focused.  See you Monday.
