Welcome to the Pursuit

You are in pursuit. I am in pursuit. We may be pursuing different things, but we’re all chasing something. I’m in pursuit of a healthy and disciplined lifestyle which has evolved over the years. I’m thankful that my pursuit is my passion, and my passion fuels my pursuit.

To keep up with my pursuit and begin one of your own, you can find me on these social channels:

Newsletter: “From the Training Desk of Hans Schiefelbein” is my weekly review of what I’ve read throughout the week, covering healthy lifestyle articles and commentary.

Twitter: my favorite news source and probably the second best place to keep up with me, right behind…

Instagram: leveraging this channel in 2017 to bring you workouts, recipes, and inspiration to pursue your health.

YouTube: every Saturday I publish a vlog on my journey through Love This Book, a year-long trip through the Bible with Blackhawk Church

Facebook: Because you still have to have a presence here…

### The Passion: Health and Fitness

Let’s face it: if health and fitness were a pill that you could take to get your daily dose, we’d all get our prescriptions filled yesterday. Living a healthy lifestyle is hard work. That’s why it’s so elusive for so many people. Anyone who spends an extended period of time with me quickly recognizes my interest and passion for exercise and healthy living. As an undergrad I studied physical and health education. I’ve always been physically active. And when I pursued a personal training certification through the American College of Sports Medicine this knowledge grew into passion for coaching the benefits of healthy living.

Lately my writing at the Game Plan has shifted to focus more on this passion for exercise and fitness. I’ve been blogging since February 6, 2006. That post began a passion in me that is still growing to this day – a passion for writing. I’ve always written in a journal and I’ve always had the desire to produce meaningful content (with a little commentary around the edges). My career, talents and abilities have developed over the years. I pride myself on being an excellent teacher, student, trainer and coach in the area of healthy living. Exercise is my passion.

### The Pursuit: Discipline

Now if discipline were a pill that you could take to get your daily dose, that’s a prescription I couldn’t do without. I remember doing so many things well growing up but once my peers started passing me in various sports or school, I identified the need for discipline in my life. Discipline is the trait of traits; all aspects of a successful life hinge on a person’s ability to be disciplined.

### A Pursuit and a Passion Create a Path

Every man has to have his goals.  My goal is for this blog to be a catalyst for discussions on pursuing a healthy and disciplined lifestyle.  No matter what your pursuit in life, I guarantee you will find this place to be full of genuine content and ideas.

Thanks for stopping by. As always, your feedback and conversations would be greatly appreciated.  Welcome!

Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
