Get-Fit GuyTurn Your Fitness Weaknesses into Fitness Strengths If you want to run faster, lift heavier, or have larger calf muscles, the path to achieve results is pretty clear. But sometimes the goal is more elusive and that is when you should focus on your weaknesses until they become your strength.


FacebookAn informal version of “Workout of the Week” where I reached out to you, the audience, to find out how I can best serve you. If you have suggestions for a video, a podcast episode, or a blog post you would like to see, just hit reply on this email! I am all ears.


Triathlon – For those of you in Vancouver, let me know if you are racing in the Vancouver Triathlon on September 3 and we can plan a finish line meet-up. I’ll be the guy with the deeply indented goggles marks on my face. Apparently, my face is made of plasticine lately.

Running – I have signed up once again for the awesome East Side 10k here in Vancouver. If you are also running, let me know and we can hang out… in the rain… because it pretty much always rains during that race. Right?

Marathon – I am not racing (this time) but I will be at the Chicago Marathon in October cheering, spectating and grabbing some interviews. Again, if you are there, let’s met up!

Woohoo! And that is that.

I hope you find this round-up email newsletter interesting, helpful and informative. If you don’t, please feel free to unsubscribe – BUT – if you do enjoy it, feel free to forward this to a friend! I love it when you share the love.

Until next time, get out there and get that body moving!

Brock Armstrong
