Take the Trip

posted on August 8, 2022

Our goal at UF is not just to help you get in better shape, be stronger, and move better. Our goal is also help you live a healthier, stronger, and more fulfilled life. Hopefully when you visit us you have the best hour of your day, and you take something with you that will help you overcome challenges throughout your day. With this in mind I want to remind you to take the trip, any trip, when opportunities arise, give it a go. As Montrell says, “If you stay ready, you don’t need to get ready.” So let me share the story of my most recent trip.


My Trip.


I always wanted to see the entire country. Tenzing (my son) has been to 29 states and 2 countries in his first 8 years of life. We decided that this year we would take a train ride across the country. If anyone ever wants to do this I have made a short list of what to be prepared for.

  1. Sitting hurts. I enjoyed the sites and watching the country go by. I never had a job that I sat all day, and I learned during our train ride that sitting all day makes your back hurt. Do what you can to move more!
  2. Food and service on trains are surprisingly good. We had a bedroom, private bath, and meals as well as drinks were included. Think of a cruise with less annoying people, and much less destruction to the environment.
  3. If you are a light sleeper, you won’t sleep. The train can be amazingly smooth, yet it’s similar to flying, just when you fall asleep there is some shaking or movement that reminds you that you are in motion.
  4. Don’t anticipate being on time. In the world of trains freight always has the right of way. Passenger rail is always being pushed out of the way for the many long, long freight trains carrying stuff.
  5. Enjoy the ride and eat the free desserts. Take the opportunity to enjoy the ride and don’t worry about your macros.


That’s the breakdown of my tips for traveling via the rail. If you see me stop and ask, I’ll gladly share the long story of all of our visits. Until then, stay ready.
