Motivational Story of the Month

0 81

Motivation is half of the puzzle, without it all of the knowledge and goals are irrelevant. Even I, somebody who lives and breaths health & fitness sometimes lacks motivation – it is human nature to sometimes feel like not doing something. This is why this monthly feature on FitMag is so valuable because when intrinsic motivation stops working you require extrinsic motivation to continue.

Craig Rowlands, last month’s Transformation of the Month winner completed his 12 weeks since we awarded him with the prestigious title. However, in the last week Craig went through what most others couldn’t have dreamed of going through. After picking up a stomach issue Craig was losing water at such an intense rate that he had to get a Doctor out and put him on a drip. This was a huge issue because he was feeling so unwell he couldn’t eat and it also meant that he was losing all of his hard work by the hour.

Never one to quit, Craig persevered and stuck to the plan best he could before completing the 84 days and getting some awesome photos! Here you can see his amazing results.

In a word, this MOTIVATED me to get my arse into gear – what about you?

I was always the small kid since I can remember and it was always the same when I started football when I was just 8 years old. This didnt change until I was 16, where for all of my sporting life until that point I hadn't had the luxury of being strong on the field or powerful. I remember I always wanted to have a '6 pack' so I would do around 2,000 sit ups a night (no that is not a typo) but apart from being seriously fit I didn't get many gains in the form of aesthetics. So in the summer of 2006 when I was 16 I bought a 50kg weight set from Argos where I trained my heart out in my bedroom 3 times a week completing a full body circuit and yes, I did grow! As soon I lifted my first weight my arms always seemed to grow well and my chest didn't and that is the same today! Then at the start of 2007 I was fortunate enough to meet for the first time I guy some of you may of heard of, Kris Gethin. It is by no coincidence we share the same sir name, he is my bigger cousin (older as well :)). Kris took me under his wing, gave me a training programme and a diet and said follow this, so I did. Kris probably got 10-20 emails a DAY asking questions because I wanted to learn and wanted to know everything right away! Over the years since then Kris always guided me and put me in touch with Neil Hill who I am blessed enough to call a very close friend today. Neil now guides me with my nutrition and training and that basically explains my background to date. In the last year I have also written masses of articles for various companies and magazines in the industry and I am also the editor in chief of my own magazine which came out January of 2011, Elite Physique Magazine! My future aspirations as an athlete is to achieve a very aesthetic 'beach body', my ideal would be a mini version of Arnie, that classic shape is unbeatable in my opinion. As an individual I strive to always better myself and my knowledge and to help others who are starting out like I was 5 years ago! Above all else, it is an absolutely huge honour to be the online editor of MonsterSupplements.com!
