Training Journal

#BacktoBrian #IronManwithMe #TimetoTrain

Most people know me as Dr. Brian Hester: chiropractic practitioner and business owner of Back to Health of Anthem, two things I’m immensely proud of.


But before any of that, I’m a husband and a child of God and I’m responsible for my own wellness.


In the busy-ness of owning a business, I woke up one day recently to realize that I had not been eating or sleeping as well as I tell my patients to.


I wasn’t focusing enough time on date nights or stopping to appreciate small moments in my day. And it’s because, I hadn’t been prioritizing my own wellness.


Now... if someone had come to me and said all of that, I would have replied to them with a blunt,


“So? What are you going to do about it?”


So? I signed myself up for an IronMan.


The bottom line is: you are responsible for taking good care of yourself... and so am I.


We have to take care of ourselves first before we can take care of anyone or anything else that matters to us in life.


If you follow my Journey to IronMan, you’ll hear about my highs and lows, my training tips and advice and I’ll ask you to celebrate with me when I find hard win victories.


I hope you’ll join me on this ride.
