When your fitness training philosophy communicates a clear understanding of your long term “why,” your plan becomes easier to activate and sustain. The human body, mind and spirit are amazing and complex interdependent systems, which respond and, if you're recovering adequately, adapt to training. A well-defined blueprint can deliver benefits, but your progress can be limited if your goals are unclear. Identifying your philosophy to optimize your fitness, performance and health requires a bit of planning and ongoing attention. The mind-body connection is strong. We know that physical training impacts our state of mind and vice versa, and that our intentions influence our results. When the “why” is clear, the “how” becomes easy.

I hope this letter reaches you in relative peace. I am Fritz Sleigher and just retired out of MARSOC after 22 years in our beloved Corps. Thank you for the retirement note. I served as an 02, 0369, 0311, and 0317 with a smattering of other MOS’ at various units. I retired as a Gunny, which will come into play shortly. I watched your video and feel your pain. Although we have never met, I am certain that you feel each loss of life and are just as confused as to why Marines are taking their lives at an alarming rate. I’ll never understand the monumental burden of command you bear, but I am certain we both share the feeling of loss, guilt, and confusion after each suicide. The BLUF on suicide is this: The current culture of the Corps conflicts with itself and creates an environment where those in need feel even more secluded. I re-posted your article on FB, and several peers (recently retired enlisted combat vets) sing the same tune: The Corps let them down.
