"Dont Pray for an easy life, Pray for the strength to endure a difficult one"

“Training” means different things to different people.  To me, training is the road to master your body for your desired outcome.  This can mean exposing your body to stimulus that will adapt it to a certain performance (like a powerlifter, surfer, yogi, or runner) or for aesthetics (like a bodybuilder, model, or beach bum), or both (like a ballerina or fitness model).  


For example, I started off wanting to build muscle and strength.  Then, out of necessity, I switched to a more aesthetic-driven motivation (modeling).  Eventually, I discovered that improvements in aesthetics will accompany a high level of performance done in a certain way, as a sort of byproduct.  The net result is a body that can perform well (feats of strength, endurance and flexibility) and look great (lean and mean) regardless of one’s primary goal.
