When the barbell calls you… GO!

My first encounter with strength, muscle, power, fitness and physical prowess came around the  age of four. My uncle Elroy was a black belt in Kung Fu.  He was also incredibly lean, muscular and powerful. Every day I would observe him in the basement of our home kicking a heavy bag, sprinting on a treadmill, strengthening his arms with one of those …

Music For Smashing PRs

This year marks Strength Camp’s 10 year anniversary. Ten years ago I decided that training in your typical “chrome and carpet” fitness center was not for me. I wanted to train like I always had, like an athlete. Dropping heavy barbells. Flipping 1,000 pound tires. Yelling. Chest pounding. LOUD music. Shortly after opening the first old n’ dirty Strength Camp gym in South …

How Elliott Trains Today (new workout principles)

These last two years or so have brought about a tremendous shift in how I do things in my life. For many years I worked with reckless abandon on my body, my business and anything that stood between me and “success”. I’m a natural born sprinter.

Tribute To A One-Legged Badass

Back in 2013 my YouTube popularity had just begun to rise after creating videos for over 6 years.

I received tons of amazing videos from people all over the world, but …

The Biggest Challenge For Millennials

Back when I was making daily “Yo Elliott” videos on YouTube, I would receive thousands of questions every single month. Most of my audience is between 16 and 30, so I got a lot of questions from Millennials. A staggering number of those questions went something like this: “Elliott, I feel depressed”. “Elliott, I don’t know what my passion is” …

How to Heal Your Childhood Wounds

The White Knights & Dark Wizards of Fitness

Later this month I’ll be giving my most important speech of recent times at The Fitness Business Summit. The website in the link above shows the title of the speech I was going to give at first, but it’s no longer correct. I’ve changed my mind. Instead I am giving a talk that captures the essence of everything I’ve learned about leadership in my …

The New “Selfie Strength” Movement

It’s clear that we live in the most me-centric time and culture ever recorded. Today everyone is their own “celebrity”. Every time you take a selfie, your celebrating your self. Every social media post… Every glance in the mirror… Every mention of your accomplishments, your new toy or what you ate today… is a celebration of YOU. I totally get …

Hot Air or Hot Shit? (business ideas that stink so good)

Have you ever wanted to turn your passion into a business and live life on your own terms? That’s good, REAL good. But first we’ve got to evaluate if your idea is full hot air (all talk and not practical) or hot shit (dope, lit… awesome).   Last time I was in London my friend Brian Rose interviewed me on …
