I Love ______ but I'm Totally Out of Shape.

TSCers, I hope that you have a sport or physical activity that you are passionate about. Growing up in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains, I've always had a lot of friends that are extremely passionate about snowboarding.

Friends of mine that can sleep until noon every weekend all summer long will wake up at 5:30 in the morning on a Saturday and drive in the freezing cold, over snow and ice to get to the mountain to enjoy a gorgeous day in the crisp northwest air and some fluffy powder snow.

Many of my snowboard enthusiast friends are carrying 30lbs of excess body Fat with them every time they go to the mountain. It's literally weighing them down. This is particularly bad for snowboarders because excess body Fat means increased momentum, hard landings and even harder falls. A strenuous physical activity like snowboarding is great for the body, mind and spirit, but excess fat means unnecessary wear and tear on your joints, especially your knees.

My friend John burned off over 50 pounds of fat before the snowboard season one year. He said, being in shape with better cardio conditioning and being physically more fit and lighter led him to have his best snowboard season ever.

Ridding the body of excess fat will make you better at almost any physical activity (except for Sumo wrestling). If you enjoy basketball, burning off excess body fat means you will literally jump higher and run faster, ask Zach Sokolik. He transformed by burning off nearly 100 pounds of body fat and simultaneously quadrupled his value and enjoyment as a basketball player.

So TSCers, if you have a sport or physical activity that you are passionate about, you should expect to enjoy it more after the POWER-10 Challenge. You'll be lighter, quicker, faster and more agile. All around you'll be more athletic, your heart will be in better shape and your joints will thank you.
