To this day, watching Luke walk out of his home on Tatooine with the binary sunset (listening to John Williams’s epic score) still sends chills down my spine. I imagined I was Luke, and it was destined that I would bring peace and balance to the Galaxy. Advancing a few years, I discovered Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and became enchanted with the walk from the comfy confines of the Shire to the Lonely Mountain and Mordor. I imagined myself hiking up magnificent mountains, through cavernous halls, and living out the life of an adventurous Hobbit. Then came high school, and lost myself in the world of Neo and the Matrix – this was an easy dream. A guy that spends wayyyy too much time on the computer discovers that he is “The One,” and will soon possess the skills necessary to defeat the machines and free humanity from prison?
But I am NOT the Hero. Here’s why that’s amazing. The death of the hero. The Greatest Workout Ever Created. Today’s workout is the greatest workout ever created. Why? Because it’s based on the best on the greatest video game code ever created. In fact, you can probably guess it right now: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A start. That’s right, the code for extra lives in Konami’s NES classic, Contra. Since its release, this code has become famous among nerds. I remember a few years ago when a nerd hacked ESPN.com, allowing you to input the Konami code to see a screen full of unicorns and rainbows. It was only a matter of time until I figured out how to pay homage to one of my favorite games growing up here at Nerd Fitness.

-Steve. Rules of the Rebellion. These are the rules that explain who we are, why we’re here, and what we’re doing. If you’re wondering if Nerd Fitness is right for you, look no further than this list. Hopefully the ideals that we stand for resonate with you – we’d be glad to have you. #1. We don’t care where you came from, only where you’re going. 400 pounds overweight? Welcome aboard. 50 pounds underweight? Glad to have you. We don’t care where you came from or how you got here, as we all have different backgrounds, genetics, social statuses, and commitments. Don’t make excuses, offer solutions. Everybody has baggage they’re dealing with (sh** happens, remember?) #2. None of this “dieting for three weeks” crap and then going back to the way things were. The rebellion is where the light is. . #3.
Bench press machines, squat machines, ab machines, inner thigh machines – forget them. These are tools created by the empire to lull the uninformed public into a false sense of security. Here are some changes you can make: #4. . #5. Rebel Fitness Guide: A Beginner Fitness Guide For Busy People. Our ebooks have evolved!

On January 1st, 2014 we’ll be officially reopening the Academy with two courses: These self-paced courses will contain everything you need to build healthy habits, start exercising properly, and effectively adapt your diet and level up your life. Each course comes with its own “path” to follow, high-definition exercise demonstrations, months and months of exercise programming, nutrition advice based on your goals, a special community for “students,” and more.
Spending the past two months with the Rebel Women who have joined The Academy have made me so excited for the future of this platform.

I have a confession to make. Unlike this awesome dog here, I’m not a fan of running. I used to run cross country in high school, and I’ve tried to get excited about running about a dozen times since then. After reading Born to Run, a fantastic book, about running, I even had myself convinced that I was going to LOVE running. Every time I get started, about ten minutes into my run, I just get bored as hell! I know some people love running, it makes them feel good, and it’s their primary form of exercise – I’m happy for you (and the info here will help you too!) I’m here to tell you that if you don’t like running, you don’t need to be spending hours a day on a treadmill or out jogging around your neighborhood to lose weight. In fact, those hours of running could actually be causing you a litany of healthy issues that I can help you avoid.
(warning – interval training shouldn’t be done by people who haven’t exercised before. What do I have against cardio? What’s Interval Training? -Steve photo.
