Paragon - Model of Excellence
On our path of awakening the warrior within you, we focus on improving or reinforcing three pillars of Transformative Purpose: Body, Mind, & Spirit.
I want to introduce you to one of our Reforged Paragons, Brian.
He executes on this by training hard, working on improving himself mentally & spiritually, while helping others do the same.Brian is very passionate about the health & fitness industry and makes it his mission to perform his best in all aspects of health and fitness.
Since he has been a part of the Reforged Legion, we have watched him pull some big numbers in his favorite form of fitness: Powerlifting.
Not too long ago, he pulled a 600lb Deadlift at 195 lbs.
This means he has pulled 3 times his weight.
A lot of people will look at his progress today, not noticing the 5+ years of consistent exercise - showing up 4-5 times per week to put in work.
Regardless of if he was "feeling it" or not, he would put in work.
Even on the days where he was only feeling 50%, he gave 100% of that 50%.
The consistency led him to find this impressive level of strength.
Today, Brian prepares to compete in a Powerlifting meet... and we believe he has the potential to be a champion powerlifter.
One of Brian's favorite Reforged elixirs to use is Impulse. Impulse is our nootropic energy drink mix that aids in focus in concentration. While Brian has supplemented with our full-spectrum pre-workout Catalyst, he personally uses it as a last resort and only if he's completely exhausted.
He is currently supplementing with our Post-Workout elixir Synergy and will let us know how it goes.
I wanted to showcase Brian because he is just like a lot of YOU: he seeks fitness for Deep Health - for mind, body, and spirit. He uses fitness to better himself in all aspects of his life.
Whether you are pulling some big numbers like him, or just getting started on your fitness journey... we are here for you throughout the way - just like I was when he first started strength training with myself and my little brother.
If you're struggling to find time for health & fitness with your 1 million obligations... we will help you find a way.
If you're struggling with eating to match your fitness goals... we will help you optimize this.
If you're struggling to find a specific purpose in life - let us help you use fitness to get your mind and body right so that you can find this within yourself.
I can't wait to see what you will become.
Until next time Reforged Warrior!

Have you asked yourself why most people fail their diets?
A lot of it comes from extremes: huge diet restrictions, following a fad diet that's not prescribed to your body, and more.
Many of us go too extreme to the point of so much discomfort, which makes us actually fail rather quickly.
Most of the time, people stop their diets within 5 weeks.
So today, I wanted to shift your mindset towards nutrition.
In this post, we are going to go over 5 nutrition principles for success.
