Faster Stronger Wiser is a concept that I came up with to describe my style of fitness training. I always strive to be better than I was the day before, which applies to my physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The term Faster Stronger Wiser originates from the order in how my body developed. I was always fast, but not strong. When I created my strength, I didn’t know how to use it. As a result, I had to acquire wisdom. This concept was applied to all my training routines. Before becoming a certified personal trainer, I was rehabilitating my knee back to 100 percent due to a bad injury during a basketball game. My primary concern was getting back my speed.
In getting my speed back, I started to lift weights and focus on full-body strengthening exercises. This allowed me to develop unknown strength levels within myself. The wisdom portion comes from my learning how to work out. I took multiple fitness classes from Cycling to Pilates throughout getting my first two fitness certifications. I studied all types of workout techniques and spent my time learning numerous exercises for all muscle groups. This process led me to become a successful personal trainer. I had serviced a little over 8,000 private sessions between three gyms and taught over a hundred group classes. My first two clients became personal trainers themselves, and I even took part in creating my classes. I began to apply the faster, stronger, wiser mindset to my day-to-day life outside of fitness.
Concerning school, I would focus on finishing my assignments faster so they would never be late. I focused on reading more books to be a stronger learner, and I took time out to understand the material that the courses provided to become a wiser student. Before I applied this methodology, I was on the verge of quitting school.
However, I finished with my Bachelor of Science in Business and pursued my M.B.A. in Business the following year. After seeing this method's success in my career and school life, I applied this method to my spiritual life. My belief in God is what kept me strong for the two years I spent recovering from a knee injury with no insurance and no professional assistance. I relied on several healing scriptures such as "Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled." (Psalms 6:2 N.K.J.V.), and "He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction." (Psalms 107:20 N.K.J.V.) I applied the methodology that God blessed me to know as "Faster Stronger Wiser,” and I quickly read the word. I was strong-willed in avoiding temptations to give up and turn my back on God, and I was wiser by taking time to understand the message in the scriptures I was reading. The Faster Stronger Wiser methodology helped me get through so much in my life that I started to design workout routines with that concept in mind.
