It’s common; way too common. You ask someone to do something or you ask them why they didn’t do something & you constantly hear excuse after excuse for a person not being able to do something or even trying.

Working in the fitness/health industry I cannot describe how many times I’ve heard different excuses from individuals claiming that they are not able to accomplish something.

Is it truly that they are unable to do something or is it simply a lack of willpower?

I’m constantly inspired every time I read an article such as: “400-pound marathoner celebrates nine hours, 48 minutes and 52 seconds of ‘pure hell.’” A 40 year old retired sumo wrestler completed not only his first, but second marathon. Despite, the man’s “condition” he completed the dreaded 26.2 mile endeavor that an estimated .13% of the world’s population ever manage to complete in their entire lifetime.

There is no doubt in my mind that this man endured a lot of pain. Not only pain from the months of training that a marathon requires, but from the ridicule he must have received from individuals that told him he couldn’t do it.

However, despite the physical pain, ridicule from spectators, and the emotional pain Kelly Gneiting accomplished what most people would dream to be impossible.

I believe that Mr. Gneiting will truly be an inspiration for many individuals.

Whether someone is overweight, has a physical disability, unmotivated, or simply self conscious with themselves; Mr. Gneiting proved not only to himself, but to the world that what seems to be impossible is simply just a personal challenge.

No matter how big or small the challenge, it is up to you to give it your best shot and experience victory!
