Be RELENTLESS!

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

A couple of years ago, I received the book Relentless from mentors of mine.

“Relentless is about never being satisfied, always driving to be the best, and then getting even better. It’s about finding the gear that gets you to the next level…even when the next level doesn’t yet exist. It’s about facing your fears, getting rid of the poisons that guarantee you will fail. Being feared and respected for your mental strength and toughness, not just your physical abilities.”


You do not need to be a professional athlete to be Relentless. We can all be Relentless.



When you wake up, do you think about how you can be better from the day before?


  1. Are you striving to be at least 1% better than the previous day?

  2. Are you making sure that nothing is getting in your way of reaching your health and fitness goals?

  3. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to reach your health and fitness goals?


When I think about being Relentless, I apply it to every aspect of my daily life. From a health and fitness view, I have strength goals that I want to hit, and I’m not going to let things get in the way. Every day I strive to get 8+ hours of sleep, stay hydrated, and fuel my body with nutritious foods; and three months ago, I completely cut out alcohol from my life as it can inhibit muscle growth. I am at a point now that I have to move weights seven days per week. I have a coach that programs for me, and when he tells me to get in a sauna or Epson salt bath for 20 minutes, I listen. I will do whatever it takes. I meditate 1–2 times per day and get energy work done (Reiki or Acupuncture every couple of weeks) to ensure my body is working to full capacity. I take my vitamins and never skip meals. I also am constantly reading (usually three books at a time, and it may only be 10–15 minutes per day), but it is on various topics (some completely outside my comfort zone so that I can learn). Every Friday, I make sure my schedule for next week is defined for each hour of my day, and I treat it like a doctor’s appointment (I don’t miss it or skip it). I have business mentors who guide me and hold me accountable so that I can have the BEST gym and that every hour someone comes to ANCHOR, it is the BEST HOUR of their day (even if you don’t like the program, I wrote ;). Besides lifting weights, I love biking and hiking, so I get my cardio in and get some fresh air and Vitamin D. When I realize that I have started consuming too much coffee, I cut back to one daily and switch to green tea. Let me tell you, I am FAR from perfect, but I strive to be RELENTLESS when it comes to my health, fitness, and wellness. Why? Because you ONLY have ONE BODY and ONE SHOT to take care of it. If I am going to be living, I want to be able to do the things I enjoy and not have to worry about it because of my health.


So, I challenge YOU!!!


Over these next few days, please think about one way to improve your health and fitness. It can be small too. You could start out meditating for 5 minutes before bed. Instead of sitting on the couch all day watching tv and recovering from a rough week, you go for a 10-15 minute walk. Instead of sleeping in on a Saturday, you go to class first and then go back to sleep.

I want to hear from you, how will YOU be RELENTLESS today?

Respond to this email and let me know!


Be RELENTLESS!

Catch you next week,

Charlene
