Yup, it happened… Yesterday morning I reminded you that the full moon has the capacity to reflect and reveal that which is hidden. Things that are hidden from sight and mind all seem to be illuminated during the full moon cycle. So yesterday afternoon I go a GOOD look at something that I have been keeping in the dark, so-to-speak, …

Can you see the werewolf… in the mirror?

Last night was a full moon. Folklore says that full moons bring werewolves; or more accurately, full moons turn certain people into werewolves. Did you see any werewolves? Horror movies, pop culture and misinterpreted mythology causes most people to look “out there” for the ghosts, goblins, demons and monsters. Out there, in the darkness, in the woods, behind the closet door, …

One of my mentors told me, “Mythology contains a more accurate depiction of reality than most of the scientific jargon we use today.” Yup… a bold statement. True, or not…. it makes you wonder what the heck is actually available in the so-called “fairy tales” and stories of “The Gods” for us. Lets consider the Greek Myth-story of Narcissus and …

Your so-called “Big Dreams” are bullsh*t

We often speak about “following your dreams”.  But how do you know what your dream is?  How do you know it’s the right dream?  How to receive, interpret and take action on your dream in the right way and at the right time? First, understand that what most people call “their dream” is not really their dream at all. Most people’s dreams …

Warrior of Light vs. Soldier of Fortune [which one are you?]

FullSizeRender

To be a warrior is 100% an INNER phenomenon. First, you must understand that what the world calls “warrior” is in most cases a soldier. A soldier works for pay. A warrior works for Spirit. A soldier kills because that’s his job. A warrior sacrifices because it’s the right thing to do. A soldier is in it for himself. A …

About three years ago my friend (now partner at Strength Camp) Chris Barnard and I were training at the gym and coming up  with some new ideas for bringing more STRENGTH into the world.  That’s how the Strength Camp Challenge was born.  We wanted to create an event that would not only bring together  great athletes and people who loved …

Why Meatheads Must Meditate

Yo, it’s pouring rain here in FL and everyone is freaking out. Its not the rain that has them going bananas though, its the heavy winds, flooding and lightning strikes. When it’s wild outside it feels good to be safe and calm inside. For the health of our bodies, most people realize that stepping out in a storm might not …

Ascending Strength (through personal death)

The first YouTube video I made back in 2007 featured me, and a bunch of guys I was training in the park… flipping a 400 pound tire. The video is still up, along with hundred of old videos I made way back before “Yo Elliott” became slightly famous, and Strength Camp became a world recognized gym. Since then millions of people have …

Rep what you love (we love STRENGTH)

It’s a weird thing… When we’re kids, we can’t wait to grow up. When we become grown up, we wish we were kids again. Kids say, “I can’t wait to grow up so that I can have more freedom, express myself and be without boundaries.” Adults grow up and say “I wish I could turn back time, to the good …
