Bjooerkmaan

Swimmer since 11 years back. Recently moved from his hometown for studies, and therefore won’t nearly swim any more. Instead, he’s focusing on the gym, where he wants to get bigger and stronger.

He also have some problems with his shoulders, which is why he focuses on them a lot. Basically, what sets his weight limits on the gym is his shoulders. He trains his shoulders every day with rehabilitating exercises, and so far he has gotten good results.

As mentioned earlier, he goes to the university where he studies technical physics. It’s really hard but hopefully it turns out okay.

 

 

Medved

A guy who has a wide-spread interest like fitness,literature, science, music (practice guitar on weekly basis), gaming and politics. I’m also one of those people who easily get carried away with “personal projects”. I don’t think that it’s necessary  a bad thing because it take some dedication to go through with it . On the other hand sometimes there are more urgent things to be done then my personal projects, situations like that can be problematic.

Fitness is the answer! (Believe or not :3

Before I got into fitness I trained some martial arts as young, tested a few other sports but nothing lasted long. I was quite unfit from the age of thirteen to my current age which is nineteen. “LOL so unique.. a chubby guy who want’s to get muscles to hide his low self-esteem”. That’s not the case and surely not the reason why I got into fitness. It started first with that I was just tired of sitting home and doing nothing so I went to the gym a couple of days each week to exercise and get away from home. After each training the interest grow more and before I knew I was hooked up. Going to the gym and building muscle is part of it but there is more like nutrition, cooking, anatomy and rehabilitation. All these parts will have a role how healthy and what life quality you will have. What I like more is that you always learn new things and find new way to improve many aspects of your life.’

 

One of the best poems I ever read and this is the guideline to live by.

What will matter by Michael Joseph

Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.
So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;

not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

 

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew,

but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
What will matter is not your memories,

but the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident.
It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.
