What “fitness feat” have you always wanted to accomplish? I think we all have something in mind, a seemingly insurmountable task that we just wish, for whatever reason, we could do. You see other people accomplish it with ease, and you secretly wish that you were them—even just for a minute—to know what it feels like.

I remember, as an overweight kid, when it was time to do pull ups for the President's Fitness Challenge in gym class. Oh no! The embarrassment of not being able to perform one repetition! I even had a hard time with the bent arm hang, which was supposed to be easier than the actual pull ups. How I wished I were like the “skinny” kids who could proudly perform several pull ups without struggling.
