The Mighty Mission
To promote a lifestyle geared toward overall health, well-being, safety, sanity, strength and mobility, lasting results and peace of mind; to foster awareness of a healthy, effective approach to exercise and diet; to enhance the visibility of informative storytelling; to contribute artistic captures of the objects and moments of this precious and privileged lifestyle, which celebrates and defers to fulfilling human potential through physical empowerment.
It's about living in your body, making your body the best it can be, making yourself into the best you can be through your body, and respecting the body as a machine for living. It's about getting the most out of life and enjoying movement as beauty, not simply a means toward beauty; thriving despite old and new physical setbacks; and aging slower and far better than the American standard.

That's cool - in fact, really cool. Here are 12 great things about being an amateur athlete.
Not all women want to look
like fitness models and not even fitness models actually
do. Lifters like me wear baggy clothes, eat chocolate, avoid cardio,
lift hard and make strange noises in the gym. If you really want to make progress, you might start by appreciating how fabulous you look right now.
And another thing: high heels are bad for you.
