This is might be one of my favorite blogs and I haven’t even written it yet.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve recently accepted the invitation to join the Bare Performance Nutrition Team as an ambassador. To understand what this means to me, let me take you back to the beginning of college. It was freshman year, I stopped drinking, I walked onto the football team and I was feeling lost and alone. In an effort to avoid thinking about how down I was feeling, I spent countless hours in the library, too many hours in the gym and the rest of my waking hours watching YouTube videos searching for inspiration. That’s where I came across Nick Bare. It wasn’t long before found myself consuming every piece of content that he created and feeling moved to make things happen. Over the years, I watched Nick go from creating content while in the army to creating and growing the best (in my humble opinion) supplement and nutrition companies out there. Not only that, but he was pushing his limits at each step of the way (both physically and mentally) and I admired that. It was what I wanted for myself and looking back, I realize that Nick putting himself out there for the world to see helped me tremendously and so many others. It’s a lesson in the power of vulnerability, transparency and authenticity; one that I take to heart with my writing.
If you’re reading this Nick, thank you.
He shared his life and who he was resonated with me on a deep level.
The rest of this blog is about the
message mindset, that resonated with me the most. It’s what made me want to be a part of the Bare Performance Nutrition Team and it’s what I think about and strive to live out every single day.
It’s the Go One More mindset.
The Go One More mindset is about taking things one step at a time. It’s about doing what’s hard in the pursuit of becoming the best version of yourself. It’s about replacing excuses with effort. It’s about doing hard things and building bulletproof habits. It’s about
facing embracing discomfort and consciously choosing to go above and beyond in all aspects of life. It’s about being present and not staying strong when the temptation to be soft looms large. It’s about digging deep and finding the other person inside of you who can do one more. It’s about consistently going the extra mile with the understanding that it’s not the things that we do once in a while that matter the most. It’s about living a lifestyle and setting an example for the people around you. It’s about being your best self and it’s why you’ve heard me talk of taking cold showers. It’s why I’m pursuing the world of endurance sports and why suffering doesn’t suck for me. It’s that next step mentality. It’s what drew me to the Bare Performance Nutrition team and it’s why I support everything that they do.
I’m going blind and while I can’t control that, I can control how I live. I understand that my ability to go one more on a consistent basis, in combination with faith, is what will allow me the endure hard things.
This mindset means the world to me because I understand that how you do anything is how you do everything. It seems too simple, but how you do the small stuff is how you do the big stuff. I’m going blind and I know that the habits that I build now will forge who I become down the road. I strive to go one more in all that I do to show others that they can too.

I hope that the go one more mindset makes more sense and even more than that, I hope that you’ll embrace it with me. Even if you don’t jump on board right away (you should), I hope that this voice stays in your head the next time that the easy way out feels tempting or an excuse looks appealing. Now, it’s quote time…
Go One More.
