‘I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts’
~ Henry Rollins
Henry Rollins is famous for many things but for me it’s as the former vocalist of the punk rock band Black Flag and author of the essay ’The Iron and the Soul’ from which the above quote is taken.
The essay is definitely worth a read, the music may not be everyone’s cup of tea though so be warned….
Rollins has cited many other notable quotes throughout his wide and varied career including:
"97% caffeine free is 97% not my kind of thing".
So hopefully you get the gist of Henry’s perspective on life.
Like Henry we believe that the benefits of exercise are much more than just the physical.
Your workout should be that hour of your day where you stick your phone on silent, forget about the outside world and enjoy exercising with like-minded people who genuinely want to see you succeed.
We also know that the more you attend, the fitter & healthier you will become, the more you will enjoy it, the more you time you will spend in class and the fitter & healthier you will become.
And so spins our virtuous circle.
So let's close out with yet another profound Henry Rollins quote:
''What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup."
