Eric Prush & Brandon Nurnberger had a zoom on line meeting. Another example of why we should support our local businesses
Heather told me someone was asking for more videos of my quarantine workouts, so here is a short video from my second workout, squats.

Looking forward to seeing every one again. Let's do encourage each other to do so e type of excersice. I believe Brandon Nurnberger shared a post yesterday & Eric sent me a word of encouragement. Thank you both.
Healthy and Happy New Year to all of my Christian and Jewish and others of different persuasions of the RSP family.
May the new year be filled with health and happiness and may all your fitness goals come true!
I want to take this opportunity to thank Eric and Brandon for posting about the bike ride fund raiser I just completed. And I also want to thank the members of relentless for their foundations. Because of everyone's generosity, I was able to raise just over $2000 to help in the fight against prostate cancer.

If you want to read all the stupid posts and/or view the Facebook videos from the ride, do a Facebook search on #bikefrommontreal.

If you want to donate, you can still do so by clicking on the link below.

Again, thank you.

Happy Birthday (yesterday) to Coach Eric!

The guy thats always picking me up just so I can put him down…

I can always count on Eric to leave the lights on all night or the AC on all weekend. I can count on him to take days to answer important texts (if he doesn’t ignore them completely) and I can always count on him to never show up to a non gym related event.

I can also count on him to put up with my ball busting even when I go too far. I can count on him to put me in my place when I get off track and I can ALWAYS count on him to be there for me if I truly needed him.

I’m lucky to have a psychopath as loyal as him on my side…and you are too.

Let’s wish the old man a very Happy Birthday shall we?

Happy Birthday, Kelly!

Happy Birthday to the and only Kelly! You know friends, Kelly is the textbook definition of a super mom. We're not kidding. The woman is absolutely incredible, always making time to support her two sons in their studies, as well as their favorite hobbies of martial arts and heavy metal listenership. What's even more impressive is that she consistently makes time to take care of herself, with the full knowledge that it will make her a better mother, wife and human. This might not sound remarkable to you, but think about it: How many of us get caught up in day to day activities, only to let ourselves go? Not Kelly, and it shows, as this super mom has lost a ton of weight and gained a ton of strength since joining the #RSP family. She's an inspiration, and we can't emphasize enough how awesome it is to have her. Kelly, Happy Birthday to you. We hope you had an absolutely fantastic day, and that the boys were on their best behavior. If they weren't, just send them to RSP in their gis and let us teach them a lesson, ok? We promise they'll never be disrespectful again when we're done...

WHOS GONNA BEAT HIM?!

07/01/2021

I used to be so hardcore.
 
In my 20s, I was pretty much ready to die every time I trained.
 
That might sound crazy, but it’s not an exaggeration.
 
Everything I had consumed told me that sets had to be performed at maximal intensity, and that squats, bench presses, and deadlifts were MANDATORY.
 
I had it all figured out.
 
I was getting big and strong and preaching the gospel of hardcore to the meathead congregation.
 
My sermons were met with rousing approval from the hyper dedicated fundamentalists of the church of gainz, and we kept hammering away, content to get swole until the end of time.
 
But something happened.
 
I turned 30.
 
Things started to hurt.
 
Back squats seemed like less of a good idea, and machines began looking appealing.
 
What happened? Did I get soft? Did my T levels drop to subterranean depths?
 
No, I was just paying the price of a decade of piss-poor exercise selection, technique, and recovery.
 
It turns out that my fundamentalist application of the gospel of gainz wasn’t ideal.
 
It pains me to say this, but you don’t HAVE to squat, bench, and deadlift.
 
They’re key movements.
 
They’re great for strength and size.
 
But some people shouldn’t do them.
 
Maybe you’re beat up from years of doing them improperly.
 
Maybe you’re not built for them.
 
Or maybe loading your spine just HURTS.
 
If a movement makes you hobble like an elderly man even after you’ve dedicated yourself to perfecting it, it’s not for you.
 
Your exercise selection in the gym doesn’t make you hardcore.
 
There’s no virtue in beating your body to death because someone on the internet said it was cool.
 
There’s no upside to having the joints of an old man when you’re in your forties.
 
You know what’s hardcore?
 
Playing with your kids and protecting your family.
 
Being able bodied enough that your children remember you for being athletic, not a hobbled has-been.
 
Not preaching to the choir of losers on internet forums or trying to impress a few dudes on social media with your “big lifts”.
 
Find what works for you and listen to your body.
 
Save yourself for what matters.
 
THAT is hardcore.

Who are you?
  
It's the simplest question of all and it’s far more difficult than reciting the name your parents gave you.
 
We all have a name.
 
But how many of us have an IDENTITY?
 
If my short time on this earth has shown me anything, the answer is VERY.
 
And this is a real tragedy.
 
Why? And why are you hearing about this from Random Fitness Man, and not someone you’ve bestowed more authority upon?
 
I don’t know.
 
But what I DO know, is that the fitness industry has helped me confront more potential identity crises than Carl Jung.
 
Everywhere I look, people are trying to be something they’re not.
 
Tall, thin guys doing drugs in an attempt to appear as jacked as a manlet.
 
Women mutilating their bodies with cosmetic surgery in an attempt to appear more like their favorite model… who also mutilated their body.
 
And no one is happy.
 
Fighting upstream can be rewarding (and necessary) if you’re fighting an enemy.
 
But fighting who you are is futile and depressing.
 
I’m not saying you should give in and embrace your vices.
 
What I am saying is that figuring out who you are and basing your pursuits on your TRUE identity is paramount to success and happiness.
 
Take RSP.
 
When we first dreamt up this whole operation, we dreamed of training people who wanted to train.
 
People who came to the gym to seek self-improvement at virtually any cost.
 
NOT people who came to the gym to kvetch.
 
At first, we were successful.
 
But we compromised.
 
Soon, we were playing therapists for the emotionally disturbed.
 
It sucked.
 
But a few years and one pandemic later, we’re getting back on track.
 
And that means every day, we have to look in the mirror and make decisions based on who we are.

It’s liberating AND terrifying. 

It means facing the future with an unmitigated sense of clarity and finally having a filter by which to separate our wheat from our chaff. 

We are Relentless Strength and Performance, and we help people who help themselves.

We empower those with will.

We provide strength for those who seek it on their own and wield it a virtuous way.
 
Who are you?

He wants to know.

From client to coach. Mike understands the #RSP difference. Just listen to what the man has to say:

"Before coming to#RSP, I had just come off of a 12 month, 90 pound weight loss journey. I was training at a commercial gym by myself working out 7 days a week. Every day in the gym was full throttle, 100% intensity filled with monotonous cardio, resistance machines and dumbbell sets. I had no idea how to use a barbell or how to get stronger. My relationship with food was horrible, I was afraid to eat carbohydrates and was basically starving myself. I had no direct training goals and was overly obsessed with how I looked. Then I met Eric and Brandon.

After just a few months of training at RSP I realized that every day in the gym is not supposed to hurt. Fitness has so much more to offer than just changing your physique. The gym is supposed to make you feel strong and healthy while changing your body’s composition.

Everybody is not genetically built to lift the same weight and perform the same exercise movements, and your programming at RSP is made for what best suits your body’s capabilities. Eric and Brandon provide you with top tier coaching, and make training enjoyable rather than slamming pre workout while blasting music to make the time go by. I want to train now, instead of forcing myself to.

What sets RSP apart from other gyms is the direct feedback on your movements. Instead of aimlessly performing exercises in hopes of success, Eric and Brandon TEACH you how your supposed to feel in certain positions.

Your experience at RSP will provide you with a lifetime of knowledge in fitness that you will be able to use forever, as well as in your daily life. I have recommended 2 family members to RSP and would recommend them to anyone that wants to improve their life both physically and mentally."

This week's shout out goes out to our dude Liam Kelly. We've known Liam for a long time, and he rejoined RSP to do virtual workouts with us during the height of the quarantine. He stuck with his training for months, and eventually rejoined us IRL relatively recently. Since then, the man has been killing it. He listens to everything we say, trains his ass off, and last week the man even showed up on his birthday. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people turn into birthday prima donnas and take a day off from training just to drink wine and read birthday cards... but not Liam. The man showed up and got it done. And all of this speaks nothing of his incredible work ethic as a father, husband and overall provider. He's the man, and he's the only Grateful Dead fan we wouldn't throw in a gulag if we ran the world. How's that for love? Keep up the great work, Liam!

Happy Birthday to #RSP's very own Uncle Joe Smeriglio! Known for his luminescent shaved head, unmatchable knowledge of the various flashpoints of all different types of flammable liquid fuel, and his fervent hatred of tardiness, Joe is an invaluable member of RSP’S Boomer Crew (where discussion include, but are not limited to, Woodstock, Reaganomics and how these damn millennials are just a bunch of softies). Now we can bust Joe's balls all we want, but it doesn't change the fact that he's an incredible family man who loves his kin and demands the best from them. Don't believe me? Take a look at this snippet from a Smeriglio family dinner, where Uncle Joe harshly tells his nephew/RSP coach @_mikeoliveri_ that he never quite had the makings of a varsity athlete. It may seem a little nasty, but trust us when we say that Mike needed to hear it. In all seriousness, Joe is a stand up dude and we'd be lucky to have a gym full of people like him. He's the man and we're proud to call him our collective Uncle. Happy Birthday Joe. Enjoy your day and play some Pink Floyd loud and proud. They made be a boomer band, but goddamn that Roger Waters could play, huh?
