Objectively Train for Your Goal

I’ve been involved in the fitness world for almost ten years now.  And, during these ten years I have constantly been on the search for ways to make things more simple and clear.

As I’ve been training for a Spartan Race Sprint, I’ve realized that most people have no idea what their overall training objective (end goal) is.  Most people don’t even seem to know what their daily training objective (fitness quality) is.  Is the objective to get stronger?  More conditioned? More mobile?


In my view of the fitness world there are two major qualities and a lot of minor qualities.

Major Qualities

  • Strength
  • Conditioning

Minor Qualities

  • Mobility
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Agility
  • Endurance
  • Work Capacity
  • Stamina

Most people just wing it and do whatever the current fad is usually leading them to spending more time on the minor qualities while neglecting the major qualities. This is why every program should be based on an end objective.  The end objective dictates the daily objective. It tells you what qualities you need to focus on and how frequently you need to focus on them.

Piecing all of this together can be difficult and that’s why I’m going to start selling programs that will best help you get ready for different competitions and reach different goals.  The first program will be focused on getting someone ready for a Tactical Strength Challenge and will be available soon.  If you have ever wanted to not only compete in a Tactical Strength Challenge, but thrive, this is the program for you.

I will keep coming up with more programs to sell and will have a few other programs available in the next few months.  And, if there is any specific competition you need to prepare for or goal you want to reach, let me know.
