The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before.“ (Steve Young, former NFL player)

“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there is no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.“ (Derek Jeter, former Baseball pro)

“An athlete cannot run with money in his pockets. He must run with hop in his heart and dreams in his head.“ (Emil Zatopek, former athlete)


Health. I spend about 80% of my day with living healthy. My sports session early in the morning is the first thing on my to-do-list after a short breakfast. This category is the most present in my life. And yes of course, it takes a lot of time, it can be hard and you’ve to have a talent for organization. You’ve to be resistant and you’ve to show discipline.

But you know what? It makes you stronger, clearer, faster. You are more alert although you need less sleep. Every time I go running I think about not stopping. “You have to operate like a machine. On and on. On and on. On and on.“ You feel fit in every stage of your day. Suddenly you want to go to the gym five times instead of four times a week. You get addicted and that’s good, because from that on it will be hard to lose your rhythm.

And guys, what if I tell you that this all isn’t as hard as it sounds? By and large, there are only two important aspects: Work and persistence. Do something for it and you will gain success.

Another advice is to use modern technique as an assistance. Having the overview of your personal data and numbers can’t be a mistake.

The Fēnix 5S from Garmin joins up your personal motivation and your overview of your records and achievements. It is a smartwatch for fitness addicts and urban trendsetters. The most important facts about the Fēnix 5S:

Life is about challenges and about getting better. If you work hard on yourself, you’ll feel a difference. Challenge yourself regularly and try to beat yesterday. Garmin has the same attitude like me. Get stronger with your Fēnix 5S and #BeatYesterday.
