24 hour HERO WOD

When you give it your all, you leave no room for regrets. In honor of those we lost, to those whose names we remember with these workouts, we will never forget. This past weekend, my gym held a 24 Hour Hero WOD with $1 minimum donation to complete one workout. We at Fortis Et Fidelis, decided this was a great opportunity to give back to FitOps Foundation, a non profit organization that gives veterans an all expenses paid 3 week course to become certified and qualified personal trainers. Seeing the opportunity, I wanted to ensure I gave back to a foundation that I was a part of. FitOps is a not only a team, but a family that continues to...

Ambassador Spotlight: Daniel Prude

  Daniel and I met while I was stationed onboard the USS Iwo Jima. We worked together for a couple years before he transferred to Field Medical Training Batallion - East (FMTB-E).

Even though they don't say it, they prove it with their actions. Never forget where you came from. My parents never talked much of their past. What they went through growing up in the Philippines, trying to make a living for my brother and I. The experiences they had with the many jobs they held, sometimes in another country as my Mom did when she worked as a Nurse in Saudi Arabia for several years. As I grew older, it was only...

Henrique Morgado (Contributing Writer)   Many of us have taken a step back from our fitness routines to partake in the festivities and the gluttony of the holidays. There are also many of us that have made a commitment to return to fitness after an absence of months or years. As the holidays come to an end, how will we return to fitness? Will we rely on our motivation, discipline, or in both?Motivation is the “why” in our actions, and the factors that contribute to motivation can be internal, external, or a mix of both. Discipline for this purpose is the meant to be self-discipline and is the “what” in our actions, self-discipline is the act of regulating our actions...
