What the Hell is Nerd Fitness?

“So, what exactly is Nerd Fitness?”

I get this question a few times a day while traveling, and it’s always fun trying to explain to people what I do.

Every time it seems I come up with a different answer.

Today, I want to share what Nerd Fitness means to me. After that, I’d love to hear what Nerd Fitness is to you…I’m feeling in the giving mood today, so we’ll pick one comment at random to win a Nerd Fitness t-shirt, now back in stock!

Nerd Fitness is…

Exactly what it sounds like. A fitness website for nerds. But oh so much more.

A movement that I’m incredibly proud to be a part of.

A judgment-free group of like minded individuals, all working together towards a common goal: a leveled up life.

A community that doesn’t care where you came from, only where you’re going.

A website that allows me to be 100% myself at all times and still feel like I belong.

A home for those that don’t quite fit in anywhere else.

A world where Super Heroes are real, transformers exist, and anything is possible.

A worldwide rebellion that is growing stronger, and stronger, and stronger by the day.

A site that hopes to become THE go-to place for a beginner looking to get educated and inspired to change their lives.

An opportunity to constantly push myself outside of my comfort zone

A constant source of inspiration to become a better person; yeah, YOU inspire me more than you probably realize. Thank you.

Why 2011 was the most excitingexhilarating and terrifying year of my life.

The reason I am so effing excited to “go to” work every morning.

What’s Nerd Fitness to you?

Thank you; fellow Nerd Fitness Rebel; I feel like I’ve found what I’m meant to do with my life through this community. Thank you for the opportunity to help you help yourself live a better life.

So now I ask you: what is Nerd Fitness to you?

I’d love for you to leave a response, and I’ll pick a winner from anybody that responds by Sunday night at11:59pm EST and send them a free NF t-shirt!

Keep kicking ass.

-Steve

PS - speaking of t-shirts, I know tomorrow’s apparently “free shipping” day; well screw that, I have “free shipping” year on NF hoodies and t-shirts, because I love free stuff…and these things probably are the greatest Christmas presents somebody could ever receive (in my humble, non-biased opinion).

PPS - By the time you read this, I’ll be out in the middle of nowhere on a 4-day safari here in South Africa (Kruger park, to be specific)! Hopefully we’ll get to see things like lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, giraffes, zebras, baboons, buffalo, hippos, and more. No word yet if Simba himself will make an appearance.  If you’ve emailed NF in the past week or so, thanks for your patience, I should be able to get all caught up by the end of next week hopefully!

    I’d mostly call it an “Adventures of Steve”  blog with fitness advice sprinkled in.  And t-shirts.

    Nerd Fitness proves to its members that “out of SMALL and SIMPLE things (small steps and goals in leveling up your life) GREAT things come to pass!” (looking from where you started, where you have come and where you want to be). Once you TRULY begin the adventure of NF, you come to realize leveling up your life is an ETERNAL principle.
