Dissident Spotlight: Kevin Herbert

What made you first get into fitness?

The short answer is sports, specifically ice hockey. My weight was always on the featherweight side and as I advanced in rank, I needed to put on muscle. Once I started lifting, I realized that in the weight room, even though I only have one hand, I was no different.

What motivated you to show up every day?

Wanting to continuously better myself, kept, and still keeps me motivated. When life "hands" you lemons, make lemonade! Now that people are inspired to better themselves by my creativity in the gym, dedication and commitment — helping people is my motivation.

What are your health and fitness goals for the future?

Continue to burn fat, build muscle, continue to create energy, feel good everyday — and know that my investment of time and energy is paying off.

What is your favorite exercise?

Deadlifts and farmers walk with a hex bar.

What made you choose Dissident Gym Wear and how do you relate to the DISSIDENT brand's message?

That's easy. When I found that they are involved with the Challenged Athletes Foundation, I knew Dissident was a company representing more than just themselves. Every person I've communicated with within this organization had the same mission: “Never quit! Stay motivated!”

What is your favorite Dissident piece?

Too many to count, but I'll have to go with my first piece — the black Tune Out "DISSIDENT" hoodie.

What is your proudest fitness achievement?

Losing 50 lbs while increasing strength by 175%.

What is your advice to anyone seeking to improve their health and fitness lifestyle?

"Do not quit at the first sign of struggle. Prove doubt wrong. Do not fear limitations. Thrive on pushing through them."

What is your favorite quote?

“Your body may have limits, but your mind is limitless."

Many people in life entertain many possibilities but not really committed to making any of them a reality. They want the best outcome, but they don’t want to do the work that is needed to achieve this. Most people won't fully commit and therefore achieve poor results and wonder why. The difference between people who achieve great success in the main areas of their lives compared to the people who don’t is the degree to how much they commit to themselves and their dreams.

So many people think they aren't where they want to be, because they don't have the talent to do so, they aren't as "lucky" as others. In all honesty it takes about 10% talent to achieve something great, the other 90% is based on how much heart you have. How much you are willing to work when no one else is watching. Putting all you have into your ambitions, and never cashing out early. This is what separates you from the rest.

Failure is a word that can easily be taken so many different ways. It is a word that can transition from context to content, and in reality; it holds a different meaning to all of us. In many cases and in many instances the word “failure” is perceived with a negative characterization.
