This guy here @james.cipriani
So thankful to be around him to learn, grow, and get better in fitness, life, and as a professional!!
I don't do a #tbt much, but this one is worth paying homage to. -
This week marks the 2-year anniversary of picking up a comfortable life in CT near our families and moving to Nashville. This was the very first picture I took here. At the time I had no job and no home yet. I sure as hell found a way to get a gym membership right away, though #priorities . -
I was lucky enough to get surrounded by great people. People like @nathanieledman @earwood_fitness @jacks_boyd @cockerhambrian @flexfitness @wollywolcott @dhfitness @stabs___ @nlfnash and a few others. -
These guys all have the same goals as me: We want to build our bodies to the best they can be. We want to build our businesses. We want to become better men...(some of us) husbands, and (some of them) fathers. I try to spend as much time around them as I can because it inspires me. -
My advice to you...If you want to reach your goals, you need to find a network of people that are where you want to be, or are going where you want to be. Then try to hang out and speak with them as much as possible. -
For example, if you want to get jacked, but all your friends are currently overweight or lazy, then it’s going to be very hard for you to put on any muscle. Your current social network is holding you back.
BUT...if all your friends were jacked, I can guarantee it’d be way easier for you to build the physique you desire. -
Am I saying to ditch all your friends? No. What I’m saying is to make some new friends. Friends that will bring you up instead of hold you back. Friends that will make you a better person. -
