GPP Fitness

I've always enjoyed a variety of sports and other active passtimes. As part of Coach Chip's training regiment he had a variety of triathlon workouts and also incorporated daily fitness workouts from several days a week. Since I finished the Florida IM in November of 2011 I started doing the GPP workouts nearly every day of the week. Short, intense, and varied... I usually do these at the gym just before work every morning. One of the first things I do in the morning is check out my workout for the day on

Overall I like the philosopy of GPP. From the GPP Website:

"GPP stands for GENERAL PHYSICAL PREPAREDNESS! GPP is about getting you healthy. Period.

We believe the only worthy reason to exercise and eat right is so that we can lead richer, fuller lives. Lives not limited by capacity and/or self-induced disease.

At GPP we realize that health isn't about who the fittest person in the world is. It isn't about who can lift the most weight, run the fastest, or obtain the highest work capacity imaginable. These things are silly, wasteful pursuits. They have no meaning. They serve no purpose.

Instead, get your workout in and go home. Go be a human. Do things that interest/edify you. Contribute to your family, your community and/or society."

GPP opened up a facility in NWA in 2013!
