Black Star Barbell is about self discovery through fitness and nutrition.  My fitness journey has taught me more about myself than I ever thought possible, and now my aim is to help you.  I will write about finding your strength.  How getting physically stronger can actually have positive effects on your life overall.  Habits that you form in the gym, like pushing yourself when you think you can't any more, will show you how much you are truly capable of.  Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn't think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know." My time in the gym has shown me that he was exactly right.  I want to show you how creating a habit of going to the gym, finding your fitness, and eating healthy can improve other aspects of your life.  Intention is a good place to start, in fact it's where everyone starts, but failure to replace old habits leads to substandard results and backsliding.  My goal is to teach you ways to exchange old habits for new ones, and show you ways to create sustainable change in your life

Below I have a sign-up option for the mailing list.  Nothing fancy. I'll share my blog updates as well as books, articles and podcasts I've found useful.  Maybe a survey or two in the future to find out what you, the reader, want to know more about.  I will not sell your emails, or spam you.  I know that you get more emails in a day than you ever thought possible, I respect that, and will do my utmost to only send you things that will be helpful to you.

If you join my mailing list, I thank you!
