Love this video because it asks, "Do you want to go by life doing things the easy way out?" Report

I have issues with this - for all of the same reasons mentioned before, but also with representation. Mostly men, mostly white. When the narrator said "devil on your shoulder" it was a black man reaching out to touch the shoulder of the white man who was passing him on the track. Did you know that African-Americans were called the devil throughout early and recent American history? The editorial staff either made a huge faux paus, or knowingly did this. Hmmm??? Report

I'm so glad this video motivates a lot of people. I found it hard to take seriously - way over the top and hitting all the fighting, gritty, manly man competition metaphors. Seemed like I was in boot camp and I just wanted it to stop.

But hey: yay to SparkPeople for always having a variety of tools and approaches for our diverse membership! Report

All I saw in this video is that everyone had quite possibly lifelong athletes, not striving for fitness. Not very helpful. Report

This is way over the top ... do not like. I can motivate myself without chiding myself or making it seem like I'm the enemy. Report

I love morning exercise but I ease into my day, so this is my not thing, my AM exercise is more therapeutic and calming than most of this. I tend to work out issues and deep think in the early AM rather than excite, more of a late afternoon, early evening activity for me. Everybody is different. Report
