John had been planning a beach day with his family for a couple of weeks. And that day had finally arrived.
Silently he had been dreading taking off his shirt in front of other people. But he figured "ah, what's the big deal, it's just my wife and the kids".
And all was great until they arrive at the beach and suddenly just a few feet away John see's another guy with his family.
But it's very clear that this guy is much different than he.
This dude is built and it's making John feel completely out of shape and broken down.
The dude has got total confidence and women are actually turning their heads as he walks by.
And while John feels very sluggish slumped in his chair, belly fat pouring over the edge of his shorts, this guy is radiating with energy, and shredded down to the abs.
He's running around having a blast with his kids, and as he speaks, they jump to attention. While often times John avoids playing with the kids because he's afraid he might blow his back out.
Even the guy's wife reacts to him differently. Whenever they talk she would gazes at him like it was the first time she has ever laid eyes on him.
John remembers when his wife used to look at him that way. But that look is long gone and the passion that brought them together has faded.
Silently he finds himself obsessing that his wife is taking notice of this guy out of the corner of her eye.
He can't prove this but how could she not? The dude is an adonis...
His chest sinks into his stomach at the thought of his woman finding another man more attractive than he. He thinks to himself, “what is the secret that this guy knows that I don’t?”
How did he manage to keep himself in such great shape all these years while I have become a shell of the man I used to be?
He's completely envious of this guy. Who's kids jump quick to attention, and women’s necks turn wherever he goes (even the younger women).
As he sits and stews to himself, a brief passage of clouds creates an overcast sky. He pulls his shirt back on as to “avoid too much sun.” But deep down he know's that he is completely out of shape and feeling self-conscious.
He can't take it anymore....
He has to ask the guy what his secret is.
The ripped guy tells him that "it is really very simple".
He met this personal trainer named "Frank The Tank" from New York who showed him a 3-second core firing trick that other men had been raving about.
And this trick has been the "secret sauce" that helped him create shredded abs and a rock solid core.
John packs up his family and leaves the beach early this day. He gives the excuse that he’s tired and wanted to get a head start on the next day. But really he hates being at the beach with his shirt off and just wants it to end as fast as possible.
On the ride home he picks a fight with his wife. She had no idea it’s because he's jealous over her "attraction" to another man.
When they get home and his family has settled, John takes a long look at himself in the mirror. He is disgusted with the fat guy staring back at him.
