“The only bad workout is the one that never happened”

Now, that is a concept or phrase that we hear over and over again, and yet, many of us would still sit on the living room sofa with Chinese take-out in one hand, and an ice cold beer in another, while we watch the third episode of Hell’s Kitchen. Chinese take-out and an ice cold blue moon? It DOES sound better than lifting heavy metal bars at a sweat-filled room with sweaty shorts everywhere.


Why did I mention this concept that you may ask? It is because I bought into the concept, and I said to myself, the only bad experience I will come across, is the one I’ve never experienced”. If I don’t try it, how am I suppose to know if it is worth or not? in the mid twenties-age, according to many, the perfect age to be out exploring, experiencing and living.


Balance is crucial – Male & Female, Big & Small, Tall & Short, Wealthy & Poor, Strong & Weak, Ying & Yang. There must be a balance in your life. Pleasures require dues. Pay your dues, Work Hard and  Play Hard.

Without struggles and hardship, Life won’t be worth living, therefore embrace it, and fight it.  – Mentor
