Commitment the Essence of Character
Most goals are not achieved due to a lack of commitment on the individuals part. More so, we are set back by the limitations we place on ourselves. Ask yourself, am I committed to doing whatever it takes? Am I putting forth the required effort necessary to reaching my goals fitness or otherwise? Am I willing to go the distance?

A Journey of 1000 Miles Begins with a Single Step
Getting started with Building Strength is quite simple. In this guide you will cover the essential aspects to setting forth on your lifting adventure. Building Strength will be your treasure map.
Access to a gym with squat racks, barbells, and benches are the very least of what you will need. Whether it be a commercial institution, a private gym, your garage, or a spot in the corner this will become your sanctuary. Grab yourself a pair of flat-bottomed shoes. Record all of your workouts in a log. With today’s technology our phones are more than capable of placing calls and receiving texts. Yet, the traditional method of a pen and a piece of paper still seems to work the best.
This guide will not be the end all be all. Keep that in mind. This guide is to get you started the right way. Take the fear and intimidation out of the gym. Barbell Academy’s website is loaded with a ton of supplementary information as well as resources which will be available for you to further your education.
