The Be Relentless Podcast is back! I’m excited to get back behind the mic and start it up again. As you may see, I’ve decided to mix everything onto a single website, the primary Relentless Strength Training site. If you’d like to go back and listen to old episodes of the podcast (which I’d appreciate) then you can get them on iTunes OR on the original Be Relentless Podcast website, which isn’t going anywhere.
On to today’s episode! (and yes, I know this is a Monday podcast coming out on a Tuesday, but technical issues…)
Problem-Centered Thought or Relentless Solution Focus…
Which one governs your life?
If you’re like most people, that’s Problem-Centered Thought (PCT). Dr. Jason Selk, author of “Exective Toughness”, instead would have you focus on a Relentless Solution Focus (RSF).
At Relentless, and not just because of the name, we have made this a cornerstone of our Relentless Mindset program. If you’re looking to start turning the ship around, even if it’s inch-by-inch, then you need to be focused on your RSF.

The hard part about having such a loyal and long-lasting gym family is that eventually life changes and people move. So sometimes you lose great members because of a job change, relocation, etc.
Unfortunately, that recently happened with Keith. He joined up with us several months ago and immediately brought a fire and personality to the gym like no other. I’ve often said that the best part about Relentless is the soul of the community, and nobody latched right on to that like Keith.
We’re sorry to see him go, but wish him well on his new ventures!
How would you describe your situation before joining, and what did you want to change?
Getting older and realizing I was deconditioned. Desire to feel better, move better and improve my psyche.
What were you most apprehensive about?
My apprehension was mostly fear of failure.
What is one of the first things you noticed after starting?
That the staff were all very helpful and engaged even during the busiest times. Friendly banter was a great motivator for me personally. The “ribbing” was essential to my progression, Isaac, Rob and Patrick are masters of this art form.
Would you take a second to describe how you are now and what’s changed?
My motivation to stay fit has changed for life I believe. When I reflect on where I was when I started compared to now it’s surreal. The few days before I left town I actually had the gumption to challenge the 405 DL club. Though I didn’t get there I was glad to have even considered the challenge.
What would you say to anyone who was thinking of joining?
Just get after it and join Relentless!! You won’t regret it. I’ve been going since December and wish Relentless could relocate with me. I appreciate the men and women of Relentless and the men and women that put the effort in every day. I’m grateful for my time with Isaac and the crew! Thanks for crossing paths with me. Peace.
