The outcome of sports competition, actual combat and life itself is decided largely by one's attitude. Superior firepower, whether physical or technical is a contributing factor but "heart" governs the application of resources. Spirit is the most powerful force on the field.
Acquiring the spirit necessary to win, which includes a positive acceptance of pain, is difficult in a society where comfort is more highly regarded than capacity. When genuine physical fitness is the norm for so few it is hard to avoid being dragged into the morass. You become what you do. How and what you become depends on environmental influence so you become who you hang around. Raise the standard your peers must meet and you'll raise your expectations of yourself. If your environment is not making you better, change it. We did.
We surround ourselves with people like ourselves, and with those whom we admire and want to become. Instead of proscribing discomfort we prescribe it. When we exercise we also exorcise. We value horsepower ahead of appearance not vice-versa. We control our environment to produce the results we seek.
Gym Jones is private. Rules and standards separate it from the norm. Private implies control, which means Gym Jones is not open to everyone. However, private does not mean closed.
