The Molding of a Leader – By Chiderah Ozbogah

The workout program that I
 plan every Tuesday morning is a way that I can assist in promoting a healthier and enriched lifestyle for many individuals. It is designed to be challenging to some extent. I think it is important to have challenges schemed in a team workout, not only to build character, but to also continuously improve. In any scenario where you are part of a team who has goals to attain; great accomplishments will almost always face controversy. What differentiates great teams from the others is that great teams always find ways to overcome conflict. Henry Kissenger stated that “A diamond is a chunk of coal that did well under pressure”.

I believe that having hardship through teamwork is essential in becoming a great team because you gain honesty, respect and loyalty within each other. Once individuals in a team are able to acquire these traits and are willing to sacrifice for each other, anything is achievable.
        Physical effort was and still is the primary type of character building. As a kid, development was simply the underlying way we figured out how to test ourselves. Our physical conduct was the main window to recognize what sort of character we had. Fitness can be used as an indication of your character. Your body is the physical representation of who you are and the type of life you live. For example, we can simply think that the people who have calloused hands and a solid neck are engaged in genuine, arduous work.These are symbols of your virtue. Roman gladiators and Greek athletes exemplified the energy of their nations. Within their chiseled body, was a much more prominent soul that was incomprehensible. Exercising should not only be a task, but a way of life.
        Workouts go hand in hand with community. The workouts, don’t simply test the people that are in my team on their physical strength, or their end goals. The workouts that I set forth are designed to bring my group closer; they make it feel more like a community. When you watch people struggle, and see the effort that they put in place, it reinforces the bond of friendship and community through just that: struggle and effort.
