The Grit Life

/ / All, Motivation


What’s up and welcome to the KP Strength Blog! I’m Kyle Paraggua – head strength coach, certified personal trainer, casual weightlifter, student, dad, husband, and the main dude around here.

On this blog, you’ll see a lot of research-based strength and conditioning, weightlifting, fitness, and lifestyle posts. I’m planning on throwing in some of my training routines, personal progress, and weekly favorites too!

To start off, I wanted to share one of my favorite terms that I apply to all areas of my life – from training to business to fatherhood… and that’s GRIT.

Grit is my word to live by. I’m not talking about grits for breakfast; I’m talking about the passion and perseverance to accomplish a long-term goal even when you experience failure and adversity. It’s the nonstop drive to pursuing something meaningful to you. For myself, I’d say it’s a lifestyle and the reason behind this blog! Hopefully, I can inspire you with my posts and help you stay gritty!
