One of my favorite things to do is to peruse the Internet for other great, geek-inspired fitness resources…
Awhile back I stumbled across CosFit,a cosplay oriented fitness group on Facebook.
While not a cosplayer myself, I was immediately impressed with the way they not only promoted getting fit and healthy through a variety of great workout ideas; but also due to the amazing photographers and cosplayers they highlighted.
So I tracked down Mr. A (personal trainer, cosplayer and the creator of this interesting mashup) and asked him if he would like to sit down and talk about fitness, cosplay and what motivates him…
So let’s talk to the mind behind CosFit and see what it’s all about, shall we?

Editor’s Note: I am off preaching the good word of geek fitness at Awesome-Con this week, so I have asked the geektastic Mike Sweetman, from Be A Healthy Geek, to step in and shares his thoughts on how to stop snacking late at night… Take it away Mike!
It’s after supper, and I just can’t stop myself from heading to the cupboards for even more food.
This was me every night – I’d head to bed feeling defeated, and wake up tired because of all the food I’d ate late at night. It took me a lot of reflection and research, but I managed to defeat my personal super villain.
And I know you can too…

I want to talk about a very important fitness concept.
Who you are today, does not need to be who you are tomorrow.
So to kick this off, let’s look at three characters who didn’t start out all that heroic:
- Wreck-It Ralph is a video game character whose entire existence is based on wrecking things. It’s literally his job to be the bad guy.
- Black Widow, before she was avenging, spent her life training to be the perfect spy and assassin.
- Melvin Potter (aka Gladiator) was a career criminal trying to go straight, but his bad choices leave him open to extortion by the Kingpin.
That’s not what’s interesting about these characters though.
What makes them so compelling is that they refused to settle for the cards they were dealt, or the mistakes they may have made.
It wasn’t easy, and they definitely ran into their fair share of hurdles along the way, but they fought to take control of their own destinies because they wanted more for themselves.
And just like these characters, your life has not been pre-determined. Your fate is not woven into the threads at the foot of Yggdrasil.
You can make changes if you want to!
