If you’re in a job that can literally kill you, and you don’t take your fitness and physical capabilities seriously then why are you doing it? You don’t have to have much to be in shape, not even a gym membership. You don’t need the stuff that is in this picture either. Push-ups, burpees, running, etc can be done pretty much anywhere without any equipment. Realistically, you just need drive, determination, and a REASON. There are people in my line of work that I have come across in my career that laugh at the thought of exercise. While everyone can have their own opinion, I personally just don’t share the opinion that “it’s a good chance it won’t happen to me.” This is a line I’ve heard come out of the mouths of people that do a dangerous job in which people in this world today disagree with and want to take advantage of the weak and even of the weak public servants who are trying to prevent their evil from reaching our homes and families. I am completely aware that I chose a career that causes me to make enemies everyday. Because of this, I have my REASONS for keeping my mind and body strong. Mine are my brothers and sisters that are going through the doors with me everyday. My other reason is because I will absolutely make sure that I make it home to my wife and kids every single night. I owe it to them, and I owe it to myself to survive. It’s not about getting big, or ripped, it’s about survival and protecting yourself, your loved ones, and the people that can’t protect themselves. So why would you not take it seriously?

I debated posting this because it’s not exactly where I want to be especially compared to some people that I know that are on this fitness journey with me. That pity party obviously didn’t last long because progress is being made. Anyhow this is a three month progression pic. #progress#gettingthereslowly#makinggains
