Now, if you’ve followed me for a while you know I’m all about supporting my friends. In fact, for me, that’s one of the main reasons I work to be strong and capable. I want to be of service in this world and I take care of myself so that I’m in a position to help others. It’s pretty basic, if you got nothin’, you got nothin’ to give.
Anyway, my good friend and fellow giant, Teiko Reindorf has a new product on the market, it’s called Big Man Strong. That’s Teiko, sitting on the right next to Chris Barnard of Strengthcamp, when we were both down for a Strengthology weekend with Elliott Hulse.
Big Man Strong is, as you might have guessed, all about big men getting strong. For me, it’s a refreshing change from the continuous stream of skinny boy fitness products aimed at promoting six pack abs to guys who struggle to gain weight.
As I’ve grown in this industry I’ve come to understand what should be obvious — humans come in all shapes and sizes, with different strengths and weakness and contrary to what the marketing says, one size does not fit all. For guys like Teiko and me, the pursuit of six pack abs and a fitness model’s physique is a fool’s errand, one that is destined to end in frustration and frailty. To attain what passes for our current standard of “fit” I would have to starve myself and sacrifice all that I have fought so hard to gain.
To make matters worse would be the psychological damage I would inflict upon myself by pursuing a goal no one but my own vanity sees as valuable. Did I mention I’ve been married for almost twenty years? That I’m almost ten years into my gym running/personal training career? Or that during none of this time did I fit what we collectively view as the image of fitness? Did I mention I’m strong as a bull and healthy as a horse?
And so is Teiko.
A word of caution: if you view his sales page, Teiko’s copy is aimed at a younger audience than I tend to attract. His copy is full of swagger and street. It’s not for the faint of heart, but then again, neither is Teiko.
However, Big Man Strong is a much needed addition to the pantheon of fitness products which tend to ignore all those who don’t fit the mainstream media’s pretty little package and aim for those psychologically weakened enough to fall prey to insecurity based marketing.
