"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." - African Proverb
Every year, 'losing weight and/or getting fit' is the first or second most popular new years resolution and there's no better time than today (January 1), then now, to accomplish your goal.
Two weeks ago, we traveled to Colorado Springs to visit the home of one of the fastest training groups in the United States. Led by Scott Simmons, the American Distance Project and ARMY WCAP program houses a plethora of Olympians such as Paul Chelimo, Shadrack Kipchirchir, Stanley Kebenei, and Hillary Bor. Alongside many other household names such as Biya Simbassa, Kirubel Erassa, Emmanuel Bor, and much more.
To parallel with the famous African proverb mentioned above, this team understands the importance of teammates. In this video, we bring to light just a sample of the dedication these athletes put into their craft. What this video doesn't show is how well they eat throughout the day and the drive to the Olympic Training Center after the workout to get their gym work in.
Let this video give you insight to the work ethic behind some of the nations best.
Most importantly, may this year give you the opportunity to follow your dreams, love like there is no tomorrow and smile unconditionally!
Happy New Year,
