Do It Anyway - an inspirational story from Scott H
Photo: Oscar Bravo
Many of you will recognize the man in the photo above. Scott Harlow has been a member of Vic City since 2014 and is well known for his energy systems and ability to grind through any tough long workout. It wasn't always this way though, and Scott has grown in so many ways over the past 8 years or so. After two runs through both the infamous SealFit Kokoro and the brutal GoRuck Selection, Scott has gone through physical and mental challenges that most of us would certainly back away from.
Scott is on a mission to help others break through plateaus in their lives and to this end, he has written a book about his own journey. "Do It Anyway" is part autobiography and part manifesto about how to move towards a limitless view on life, its possibilities, and your own internal power. You may think you know Scott, but most likely you don't know how he was forged into the individual he is today.
If you're looking for some inspiration to move forwards in your life, and want to check out a roadmap of how to break out of perceived limits, check out "Do It Anyway", it will be well worth your time!
You can grab it directly from Scott's website (scottharlow.ca), chat to him in the gym, pick it up at Bolen books or order it through online retailers like Amazon.
