Since the early Egyptian and Greek times, men and women have wanted the perfect body. In those times, the more fit a man’s body was, the closer he was to a god, and for women the better their fit curves and booty, they closer they were to a goddess.
As a matter of fact, they would hold competitions to show who had the best figure. But here is the funny thing: the perfect figure was created by an artist in Greek times, and even with the hours men and women spent in gyms it was an impossible standard. Now let’s fast forward a few thousand years and we still work to set insane standards with fashion magazine using Photoshop and airbrush techniques. What I’m here to tell you is that there is no perfect human form. It was a made up standard. But that doesn’t mean we should give up on striving to be the best we can be. No one’s genetic makeup will be exactly the same as another’s. Some people struggle to lose weight, some struggle to gain weight, some can tone up easily. This is your journey, your fitness quest and you need to do what is best for you. Don’t let society dictate how you have to look.
The Calisthenics Quest is coming soon.

The theory behind Quest Fitness is that everyone’s fitness journey is unique. Sure, you may share the same goal as the next person, but how you get there can be very different. Not everyone wants to run miles, lift weights or do push-ups, and not everyone has the self motivation to do at home videos. What we do first, at Quest Fitness, is sit down and talk game plan. We need to be on the same page on how we will get through all the different phases of your workout. Then, we schedule times to meet. Yes, it will take time, but you will have the support that you need through all the struggles. Your Quest for a more fit you starts here.

If you’re considering working with a personal trainer, my advice is:
1. Go for it. I’ve never seen these kind of results, nor been this happy with my body before. It addition to keeping me consistent, Ray knew how to push me enough so after every workout I had that wonderful feeling of exhaustion and accomplishment, knowing I couldn’t possibly have done any more work.
2. If you live in the GR area, work with Ray Shonk at Quest Fitness. He knows how and when to change things up so you continue to see results. He’s basically a fitness genius/psycho and you’ll learn A LOT from him. Bonus: he’s a bit of a sci-fi/Deadpool/dark humor kind of nerd and not at all a dumb jock.
