The Path of Strength: Manifesto

Physical fitness. Strength of character. Capability. This is what we seek.

The Path of Strength is about developing ourselves and serving others.

We are living in a time of crisis. People are hurting. Physical capability and mental health are at a low point. Polarization is tearing us apart.

We need the physical strength and the strength of character to flourish as individuals and to help others do the same.

The Path of Strength is a way of life. It’s simple but not easy: when faced with a decision, make the better choice. Take the Path of Strength.
