This guy used to be one of those hard-assed trainers until he decided to take a lesson in empathy. Went from a totally fit bod to being over weight and then took it off again. His story is inspiring because it shows how a person can learn about walking in another's shoes and to show others that it CAN be done. Watch and comment please. [yt]kdwSR9RhkM0[/yt] I think that what he has done is definitely a worthy endeavor. I got a feeling that when he sees a client starting to give up he can be more empathetic and provide better encouragement and know when to back off so that the client won't just simply give up. I've so many friends, male and female who have struggled with their weight and see too many of them just give up. One of the other things involved with getting into a physical regime to lose the weight and become fit is to pick up a physical hobby. Martial arts is a good one. Hiking, backpacking, swimming, mountain biking and yes, caving are great ones because they require you to use the muscles that lay hidden under that fat. It'll tone the muscles and help get rid of the flubber that hangs down during the weight loss. It also needs to be something that you will get better at the more you do it. Something that will help build up endurance which is important for a Martial Artist anyway. The longer you're able to stay IN the fight the better your odds of winning it.
