The 127 in 127 Fit/Fitness is a
reference to the Bible verse, James 1:27, which states, Pure and undefiled
religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans (fatherless) and
widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. (NKJV)
Fitness. – We fitness.
Thoughts. – We share thoughts.
Life. – We live life fully.
127 Fit/Fitness exists to help the
hurting. Specifically, to help those
hurting youth who are without a father.
Our focus is to teach, mentor, and lead fatherless youth through the
gift of physical fitness. We have all
been given a gift to give. Until our
final breath, we will relentlessly strive to pass on our gift of physical
fitness to the next generation.
Be Someone to Follow:
Be a leader. Be an example. Be the leader. Be the example. Be someone to follow. Each day.
Every day. No matter what. The youth are watching. Observing.
Imitating. We need to be
better. Stronger. Kinder.
We live fearlessly. Boldly. Relentlessly.
Passionately. We need to live in
love. We need to live in service. We need to live in community. It’s not about us. It’s about others. We dream.
We wander. We explore. We discover.
We learn. We live. We teach.
We model. We fail. We succeed.
We pass on. Our days are
short. Our days are numbered. Be someone to follow.
The 127 Fit Podcast is a platform for
individuals within the health and fitness community to be able to share their
story, that those who listen would be positively impacted. Each of us has a unique life/fitness
story. At 127 Fit/Fitness, we firmly
believe in the power of an individual’s story!
You never know when your story is shared, how it may impact someone who
hears it! We all have ups and downs in
life, sometimes, we just simply need to know that someone else has gone
through, or is going through something similar to us. The podcast is also an opportunity to
connect, interact, and build life-long relationships with those of us who are
passionate about health and fitness!
If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small.
Please and thank you. Simple words. Powerful words. Kind words. Words of manner. Words that seem to have been lost. When I was growing up, I was instructed to use my manners. I was instructed to say please, to say thank you. Today, I rarely hear anyone, young or old, use please and thank you. Why? As a teacher, I am appalled at how often I don’t hear my students using please and thank you in their speech. Sometimes, I am blown away when a student of mine doesn’t even know what using your manners means. I believe the loss of these words, please and thank you, are a direct reflection on the entitled culture we live in. It is also a direct reflection of the arrogant culture we live in. So many people, young and old, have this idea that they have it all together, and have it all figured out. They get what they want, when they want, how they want. Using your manners, please and thank you specifically, is an indication of humility, kindness, and respect. When someone is entitled, arrogant, and disrespectful, their speech will reflect this. Even though I grew up learning to use my manners, I am far from perfect. At times in my life, I have failed to use my manners to the fullest. At times in my life, I have been the entitled, arrogant, and disrespectful individual. But now as an adult, a teacher, and having the burning desire deep with my soul to be someone to follow, I have been focusing lately on using my manners, please and thank you as much as possible. I find using my manners especially valuable when interacting, speaking, and asking my student to do or not to do something. I am finding when my speech is full of please and thank you, I have greater self-control and a stronger hold on my emotions. These are very important when you are a teacher, parent, or coach. Please and thank you. There is always room for improvement, growth, and maturity, no matter your educational background, age, or financial status. Let’s stay focused on the little things. The simple things. Let’s start small. Let’s start with our words. Let’s start with please and thank you. Let’s see where this will take us.

You never know the impact you may have on the life of a child. A rightly spoken word or a timely action, could literally, alter a child’s life. As we shift from adolescent to adult, as the years go by, most of us tend to lose the innocence, the beauty, and the purity of childhood. We tend to lose sight of the most important things, the most valuable things in life. A lot of us, lose sight of reality, the older we get. We forget childhood. We forget innocence. We forget the beauty. We forget the purity, of youth. We forget the dreams of yesteryear. We become negative, hurried, busied, stressed, and frustrated adults. People who live life going through the motions, because that’s what we “have” to do. Take a step back with me. Take a look back with me. Remember. Reflect. Step back to your younger years. Look back to who you were. Remember the excitement, the anticipation, the joy, of a life as a child. Reflect on your childhood dreams. So innocent. So beautiful. So pure. AMAZING. You are still that child. The innocence, beauty, and purity still exist, no matter what you have gone through, no matter how hurt you have been, no matter what you have suffered. You are still a child. There is still excitement. Still anticipation. There is still joy deep within your soul. Your dreams are still available. Attainable. You never know, until you try. You never know, until you take that step of faith. You never know, who you could be. You never know, how much you matter to the children around you. YOU MATTER. God has bestowed gifts, talents, and abilities to you. You are loved! The kids, the youth, the children in your life, they want you. They need you. They are starving for your love, affection, and attention. YOU MATTER. THEY MATTER. Let love flow. Let kindness flow. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Accessible. Real. Allow yourself to dream, once again. Allow yourself to feel, once again. Allow yourself to matter, once again. Allow yourself to be a child, once again. Extend your hand to the hurting. The hurting child, children, in your life. Be a servant. A servant to the least of these. Boldly. Relentlessly. Fearlessly. Allow your life to be transformed by a child. Allow your life to transform a child. Be strong. Be open. Be an example. Be someone to follow. Today, tomorrow, and until you have breathed your last. Live life fully. Live life for the children. For the next generation. Be the reason. The reason a child has hope for a brighter tomorrow. You never know…….
