In our latest member feature, meet GHP member Abe from Stuarts Draft, VA
What obstacle/s were you facing when you decided to join the GHP program?
I was preparing to participate in Spartan Race’s Agoge in June 8, 2018. It is a 60-hour event involving physical and mental tasks and virtually no sleep. I also participated in Peak Race’s Death Race, another extreme endurance event. The website says “The Death Race is the ultimate challenge, designed to present you with the unexpected and the completely insane! Nothing else on earth will challenge you like The Death Race, both mentally and physically….”
How has GHP helped you overcome that/those obstacle/s?
The Tactical program helped prepare me for the long physical hikes and carrying weight over long distances. At different times, I was tasked with crawling long distance, carrying logs, and moving boulders. The Tactical program, is an intense program, that prepared me for virtually any challenge given to me during these and other events I participated in leading up to these main events.
What does GHP provide that you value the most?
The most important thing GHP gives you is a program that provides short, intense workouts that are effective and still give you plenty of time to spend with your family and work.
What have been your results or the impact on your life from training with GHP?
Using GHP, I’ve been able to refocus my training and I have to confidence to take on greater challenges. All the while, I still have time to teach high school, coach high school football and wrestling, practice jiu jitsu 2-3 times a week, AND have time for my wife and son.
Why did you choose to join Shift over another program/service?
GHP provided an inexpensive program that was an answer to my training needs specifically for long tactical style endurance events.
What would you tell others who may be considering joining Shift?
Do it. It’s worth it. If your commit to the program, you will succeed in whatever goal you have set.
