I’d like to wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving. I hope you all get to enjoy some good food with family and friends. I plan to train hard in the morning and then stuff myself full of turkey and apple pie.

Lastly, for those who have asked about eating and training during the holiday season, take a look at the article that I wrote after last year’s Thanksgiving feast. As is always the case, I ate myself into a food coma and enjoyed every minute of it.
People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.2 comments
The article linked to below has been making its way around social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. I came across it recently and believe it is worthy of a share. What you’ll see within shouldn’t come as a surprise… More deception within the fitness industry.
Upon sharing the article on Facebook, the following video was referenced within one of the comments. Like the article above, you’ll see another case of deceiving before and after photos.
The take home lesson from these examples is quite simple. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Real results take time. Successful training is a lifelong journey. There is no expiration date. Only so much can be accomplished in a few months.
Hard work and patience may not be marketable terms, but that does not diminish their significance. You may not like the truth, but at least be aware of it. If you wish to improve, prepare for the long haul. It is going to take time.

For those interested, I have joined Instagram. I’ve been asked about it many times and finally took the plunge. You can follow me @rosstraining. It is still brand new to me but I’ve started to add a few training pictures.
The first image that I’ve added can be seen above. It was taken yesterday while training outside in the woods. It’s amazing how challenging and fun an outdoor session can be. We mixed in a variety of pull-ups, tree climbing, stone carries and throws, log lifts, calisthenics, and finished with some sprints at the top of the mountain. It made for a fun and challenging full body session while enjoying the great outdoors.
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. – Lao Tzu3 comments
I’ve had a few questions come in recently about my lack of activity on the blog over the past two weeks. Fortunately, everything is okay and I will be back to my normal schedule soon. In addition to the new puppy, I have been quite busy offline. It’s been hectic in the gym and I just finished a new 3 hour core training video that will be available shortly.
It’s taken more time than I expected to put everything together but I’m happy to say that everything is essentially finished at this point.
As a result, I will get back to my normal blogging schedule VERY soon. I apologize in advance for the recent inactivity and look forward to updating the site with more useful and inspiring material.
Thank you for your patience and support.
Those who follow the site know that April was a rough month for me. At the time, I wrote a tribute for my dogs as both died within a week of each other. Following that piece, I received what must have been hundreds of emails. A few are still trickling in. I actually received an email about the dogs just this morning.
Fortunately, I have some good news to share. The RossTraining team has a new member. His name is Champ and he’s doing great. He’s only two months old but he’s a quick learner. It didn’t take him long to find a comfortable spot in the gym for afternoon naps.
In summary, I appreciate all the messages that have come in over the past few months. All is well here in the gym and I look forward to updating the site with more useful content within the next few days.
