“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
You know him, you love him...congratulations are in order because Kelly "One-Minuuuute" Strever" is the big winner of the 2018 90-DTC!!!!
Kelly is now the proud owner of a "Free Unlimited Lifetime Membership" at Live For This Fitness! In addition, he will be the 2018 LFT Ambassador meaning he will support and encourage all you BOOMers (and all of you soon-to-be-BOOMers) in your fitness journeys.
When you discover something amazing that enhances your life you owe it to the world to share it with them. When we lift each other up, everyone wins.
It wasn't long ago that I sat down with Kelly and interviewed him about being runner-up in the 2017 90-DTC. Well, I sat down with him again, but his time it was about how he won the whole damn thing! Here's what he had to say.
How do you feel after your big win??
Overwhelmed with support and love, excited and nervous to be the face of LFT for the next year and beyond. There was some serious anxiety leading up to the party, life was giving me a run for my money the entire week before, which in hindsight was a good thing because it took a lot of the pressure off. I see this win as an opportunity to help others in what they are trying to achieve with their goals, watching people get to their goals is what keeps me motivated each day.
What do you think was your key to success?
Realistically it was the nutrition but also working very hard in the gym, setting the goals and attaining them daily. Staying focused was 100% the key too, the daily grind and not allowing outside distractions to disrupt the goals and task at hand. In the wise words of Monica at her Tuesday night Happy Hour class, “You get 1 hour a day for yourself” which really resonated with me because it’s true.
Are you going to keep these habits for life?
Yes, LFT will never stop, running will never stop. Fitness is a part of my life, everything is better when you are in shape and in good health. The hardest part of this question to me is the nutrition. If I ever get sideways on that moving forward I give anyone permission to call me out.
What is next for you?
I also am very excited to be given the opportunity to represent such a great gym as LFT, I do have a passion for the people and the product and will do my best to help promote everything they represent. Also, just to use this as fuel for trying to be a better version of myself on a day to day basis.
What goals are you setting to keep up this awesome momentum?
On the fitness side to have better numbers as my ending numbers when the 90-day transformation challenge starts next year. Not stop just because this challenge is over, it is time to maintain and not do the yo-yo thing.
Goals for me are a fluid thing, I am definitely a goal-oriented person and still have several to put down on paper.
Do you recommend others attempt the 90-DTC?
This is the most unique challenge that I believe a gym can do. 90 days is no joke and it is something that you need to take seriously. If you are not in for the full 90, then you are not going to maximize your results. So, to answer the question, yes, I would recommend, but it needs to be taken seriously and you must remain focused.
Any final words of wisdom?
Keep grinding! It doesn’t matter where you finished, you have the momentum so continue to work on those results. Stay positive and stay true to your goals. If you ever feel like you want to quit, reach out to your fellow boomer, neighbor, or whoever and talk. People can help in amazing ways especially if they are going through the same struggles, or have lived through similar circumstances and come out better on the other side.
