The "Other Nate" Tells You Like It Is

Good Morning Athletes and Warriors! 

Even though I certainly enjoy sharing with you the secrets (which really are not secrets, just real science) to being fit, healthy, strong, performing better and all of the benefits of a fitness lifestyle, I am constantly seeking out the credible voices that are speaking the truth and using their credibility or even celebrity at times to get the attention of as many as we can reach to help this world become healthier and stronger.  With that here is a fella' we can refer to as the "Other Nate" to share his story and we pray it will help you in your fitness journey. Thanks to our friends at Factor75  for allowing us to share this great story. Take it away Nate! ....er "Other Nate" :)

Nate Boyer is a former Green Beret and NFL long snapper for the Seattle Seahawks. He has served in several overseas tours, walked on to the Texas Longhorn’s football team, and pursues his dreams in the form of philanthropic efforts. He is an advocate for health and wellness, particularly in relation to the veteran populous, and he continues to impact the world through his commendable and progressive endeavors.

“Anything is Possible.”

This is my daily mantra, words of affirmation that I live by. I have committed myself to this belief for quite some time now, and my hope is that others will realize they are not prisoners to their ill perceived “limitations”. You are never too old, too short, or too weak to do anything. I’m living proof of that. We set our own boundaries, but who is to say we should have any? Instead of setting restrictions on ourselves, we should seek limitless growth in the notion that anything is quite possible.

As a former Sergeant in the Special Forces and leader of my college football team, I am constantly asked, “How do you do it?”. “Do what?”, I respond in honest oblivion. When friends, family members, colleagues and fans ask me this, it is usually in reference to my stubborn refusal to quit. The simplified answer to every scenario is that I set a goal for myself, accept the challenge at hand and work hard and diligently every single day until I get to where I want to be. We are all capable of this. We just have to convince ourselves first. In compliments to self-assertion, I believe mental health to be one of the fundamental pieces in living life to the fullest.

Mental health begins with taking care of yourself- mind, body and soul. Many people practice self care heavily in one way and neglect the other components. It’s crucial to balance self care in all three of these categories, especially because they are interconnected. A sound mind elevates your body’s ability to function at optimal speed, with efficiency and sharpened accuracy. In the reverse, a healthy body can aid in mental clarity, comprehension, and improved problem solving skills. As for the soul, I think passion is key. This may be found in the form of loving relationships, a hobby, project or career. Wherever you find passion, hold onto it tightly and don’t lose grip. Having passion will encourage you to fight for your dream even on your darkest days.

For the mind, I wire my thoughts to be only hopeful and positive. Believe it or not though, I like to think of the glass as half empty. This isn’t due to pessimism, as some would assume. Instead, I see the glass as half empty because it allows for more room to fill my cup. I’m continually striving to grow, to change, to challenge myself. I’m motivated by a fear of regret, by life’s untapped potential and the inability to make a difference. I overcome this fear by sacrifice, consistent work, and showing up with the best attitude I possibly can. This in combination with determination is a fail-proof recipe for success, no matter what the outcome.

In regards to the body and fitness, I have always been active. I used to work on a sport fishing boat right after high school in San Diego, briefly as a firefighter in training, conditioned for combat and trained to hike Mount Kilimanjaro. I continue to exercise daily because I find it imperative in keeping my mind and body healthy all while maintaining focus. I don’t have a set routine nor am I committed to certain workout, but I find that various exercises complement one another as cross trainings.

 

Factor 75 delivers healthy fresh chef-prepared meals to your door. 100% organic, never frozen, always healthy. Keto, Paleo and Dairy-free options available!

As most people can relate, I feel my best after a good workout. Sweat releases toxins, endorphins are released, and muscles tear in order to become stronger than before. When you feel strong, you feel healthy, and when you feel healthy, you also feel invincible. Exercise is also a wonderful way to battle mental health afflictions, such as: anxiety, depression, OCD, and PTSD. Many of my brothers and sisters in the forces have struggled with PTSD, myself included, mostly in the form of restless sleep and nightmares. Besides music and art, exercise is one of the top activities recommended to vets who struggle with PTSD, and I’ve witnessed this coping mechanism gift many a second chance at truly living.

Pairing fitness with nutrition, the long awaited subject matter I’m going to connect to mental health awareness. For me, it’s quite difficult to maintain a consistent diet since I travel so often. However, I have found that no matter where I am or what’s around, I can almost always find a healthy selection of food. I’m not perfect when it comes to consumption, but I do monitor what I ingest. Food is fuel, and it doesn’t only serve as a basic form to sustain life. Food is supposed to be an enjoyable experience. It allows us to function to the best of our ability, and it can assist in battling certain physical and mental ailments.

When I am asked specifics on my diet, I can’t give a straight answer. As previously mentioned, I’m extremely inconsistent with my meals. I can tell you that I try my best to eat a lot of protein along with fruits and vegetables. Factor 75’s meals mimic a lot of what tastes good to me and what my macronutrients level out as. Plus, I can take them with me wherever I go. They are healthy, complete and delicious meals that are pre-made. So I don’t even have to think about it. The healthy food is already right in front of me, ready to fuel my body. 

I’m sure you’re thinking, so what does this mean for me? How can I get started in chasing after my dreams and achieving my goals? Start small. Set an attainable and realistic goal for yourself that leads to creating sustainable habits and a regular routine. The rest will fall into place if you hold yourself accountable and follow through. This may be applied to health and fitness, especially health and fitness actually.
