Here we are on week 8 of The Chad Attack! Didn't that go fast? I think so! haha. This week's FOCUS is RESPOND TO CHANGE!!!!
DO NOT GET CONTENT. FIND ANOTHER GOAL AND WRITE IT DOWN FOR OCTOBER. A LOT of you have been doing extremely well on your lifts, skills, workouts and even on your nutrition. Keep responding to change to not get STAGNANT and if you didn't get to your goal, then write it down again and continue to work to make it happen. These last two weeks are going to be the preparation of max out week in different areas : LIFTS which I will say in two weeks, benchmarks that involve gymnastics, some will involve running and certain tests for athleticism. So stay with it and RESPOND TO CHANGE :) because some things are coming :)!!

Now, I would like to retouch up on a theme that is coming back with full strength. The DRS STRONG MOVEMENT.
DRS Strong is a fitness and lifestyle movement created at DRS Athletics. DRS Strong is the programming, the community, the people, the team, the coaches, the members, the athletes. DRS Strong is a way of living, a way of training, a way of eating and it shows on the battlefield. The goal is to give back and help people feel healthy, happy and live with a purpose daily. We use this fitness powerhouse and such powerful movement to provide a home for those who desire to better themselves in all aspects of life. It is a very exciting theme for all of us and all of you. We believe that every single member at DRS Athletics contributes to this movement by adding something special. It is a combination of character, respect, perseverance, commitment, being fluid, and resilient when it comes to life, work and training at DRS. Every single member here represents and it is a walking example our purpose about developing real strength and building better people. We did not necessarily make you like that but we hope to fascilitate and give you the tools to be the best you can be and to live a healthier enjoyable life. We started this movement by having some of our foundation members be part of the DRS Strong promo film which we would like to expand by eventually targeting all of you and sharing why each of you is important to this movement. It is about laying the foundation for the next generation to come and for those that are starting just like some of you did with a PVC pipe =). It is about being the influence everywhere you go and being the consistent DRS Strong athlete in everything you do. Inside and outside of DRS. We have great quality people here and every one has their own motivational story. So be prepared to share yours soon :) Don't be shy by starting out in social media haha!

This is ALL OF YOU! YOU all have created this movement and its not stopping any time soon!!! A while back we gathered 7 of our founding members to start this DRS Strong Movement and we will be adding more and more individual as you continue to pursue health and fitness. We picked these individuals by being the first ones to start and lay the foundation of this movement. It is pretty exciting to see how this movement has developed into a LARGER SCALE with all of you in it. If you believe in it, show your passion, pride, integrity and strength by either posting a picture of video of yourself showing why ARE YOU DRS STRONG? " I AM DRS STRONG BECAUSE...." I work a full time job, go to school full time and still manage to get here, follow the programming and PR? or because you battle with food and this community has helped you be healthier? There can be a numeorus ways of why you are and identify as DRS Strong! LET IT SHOW!!!! We will be releasing some of the videos we got from our first individuals :)

For now, remember our FOCUS of the WEEK! RESPOND TO CHANGE!!!!
Stay Strong,
DRS Strong
