KB2 final post: that’s a wrap!

Team Aspen, what a wild and fun ride it has been! It was great to assemble a team of dedicated people all cheering each other on and being very active on the blogs. It made a HUGE difference! It is almost like we cheated? :-)

Two years ago almost to the day I jumped on KB1 and now find myself LEAN, full of energy and feeling quite young despite my 52 years of age. Down to my post-Chisel weight and leanness of 167 pounds, scale says I am less that 9% body fat, I’ll take it!

Diet was about 80%...always a challenge for me especially given where I work. I suppose one of these days I will get it closer to 100%, something to aspire toward.

Workouts were 100%, shuffled a few here and there. Didn’t miss any due to travel, illness, cysts or other excuses. A few bonus sessions to keep it fun, some yoga here and there to stretch this tired old body.

Ready to go right into the Ranger Challenge on Monday, no rest for the weary!

To all of my rockstar Aspen teammates, you all gave it your all and the results show. You get out of it what you put into it!

Cheers for now, enjoy some rest and whatever makes you happy!

Congrats Jim! Thank you for putting together this awesome team! Team Aspen rocked and it made such a positive difference in our training.
I enjoyed reading your blogs and following your jump rope streak.
Enjoy that celebratory beer!

    Jim, you really did select an amazing group for Aspen. Thank you so much for encouraging Kenzai central, (the Jedi masters) to try a planned group like this. The level of commitment of Aspen was outstanding and it really helped us all. So glad you also found the program valuable! I'll be sneaking about watching you Rangers.

      Bro 9%! Incredible! You don’t look a day over 55!
      Don’t think you were close to 100% on workouts...more like 180-200%.
      Will be an honor following you into battle on Monday!

                Jim, you are an absolute machine - at 52 with 9% body fat. Thank you for luring me into Aspen, and damn it’s the best team ever. Not only we help each other going through the program in high and low times, there are a lot of intelligent discussions in this group, and most of all. It’s just so much more fun when you have a great group. There is no “tired old body” here Jim, and you know it... And right into Ranger Challenge? Going to say this again... Are you even human?! Go Jim! I will be watching with my popcorn and wine for a few weeks until Chisel. THanks again for everything! Reunion in KB3?

                  I'm pretty sure with 9% body fat, you must be keeping the diet more like 95%! Along with your 150% workouts!
                  You've been a stalwart in the group, great to work with on the training side, and leading by example throughout this 90 days.
                  Congratulations on some great results well earned!

                    Way to go Jim!!! You look and sound incredible-incredible energy, incredible passion, incredible commitment. All hall marks of the incredible life you have built. Keep at it, and not surprised you're taking up the Ranger duty. Get at it!

                      Absolutely crushed it my man!!! Not only killed it for yourself, but you put a crazy amount of energy into your teams and no doubt led others to better results than they thought they'd get this session. Congrats and enjoy a break from all that eating you had to do to get that lean!!

                        Jim thank you for putting what has been a fantastic team together for this journey. Thank you for your encouraging posts and your dedication to the program as trainee and trainer. Lastly congratulations to you for accomplishing everything you did over those 90 days you truly do live and breath kenzai. Enjoy that beer and while I won’t see you on the ranger challenge I’m sure our ‘kenzai’ paths will cross again

                              Misty eyed over here, man. You said it: You get out of it what you put into it! Except sometimes we get out of it, what you put into it. You've been nothing short of a blessing to this Kenzai community, Jim. Thanks for showing up!
