A few weeks ago something amazing happened…

A 64 year old women by the name of Diana Nyad swam the 110 miles from Cuba to Florida.

She was the first person to do this without a shark cage, or any other source of protection from the elements.

110 miles in 53 hours… after having failed at it three times over the span of 35 years.

Despite being stung by hundreds of jelly fish, hungry, sleep deprived, and disoriented Diana Nyad walked onto the shore in Florida and said; I have three messages…

  • One: is we should never, ever give up
  • Two: is you never are too old to chase your dreams
  • Three: is it looks like a solitary sport, but it takes a team.”

Kind of puts things into perspective doesn’t it?

I mean here’s a 64 year old women who at the prime of her life failed to swim from Cuba to Florida three times.

But she never gave up.

She kept chasing her dream.

And she trusted on her team of 35 people to get her there.

Often times we’re our biggest enemies when it comes getting what we want out of life.

The negative self talk that takes place in your head has probably stopped you from accomplishing so many of your dreams.

Maybe that dream that you gave up on was fitness, financial or business related.

Or maybe it was personal, spiritual, or romantic.

Whatever it was, it’s still there waiting for you.

See, you may think that you’ve lost the opportunity, or that you’re too old now, or that you might be out of practice, or maybe the timing is just not right.

Let me just remind you that a 64 year old women swam the 110 mile shark and jelly fish infested waters from Cuba to Florida in 53 hours after having failed at it three times before.

And Florida is the shark bite capital of the world!!!!

So what are YOU waiting for?

Whatever it is that you want to accomplish is still there and ready for you…

…it’s just waiting for you to get out there and take it.

But you can’t do it if you’re just sitting in the stands watching the game go by.

You’ve gotta get out of the stands, get onto the field and play the game.

Sure you might take some hits, fall a few times, an even bleed a little… or a lot – I’ve done both.

But I can tell you from first hand experience that your odds of getting what you want out of life significantly increase when you get out of the stands and onto the field.

And I can also tell you that the level of personal satisfaction you’ll feel is the greatest achievement over whatever it is that you want to accomplish.


I believe in YOU.

Diana Nyad drove the message home loud and clear this weekend…

NEVER GIVE UP!
YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD!
AND YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON YOUR TEAM!

I hope that you know that I’m on your team and ready to help you get there.

Hopefully, some of you who haven’t been out to the gym on a regular basis are getting the metaphor.

Oh wait, it’s not a metaphor anymore:

NEVER GIVE UP!
YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD!
AND YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON THE BOOTCAMP EFFECT TEAM!

I just turned 30. That sounds old, but I will never be too old to accomplish my goals and dreams.


Committed to your success,

Josh Saunders
