It is an Enrollment for The Strenuous life.

“Wealth, notoriety, place and power are no measure of success whatever,” H.G. Wells said. “The only true measure of success is the ratio between what we might have been and what we might have done, on the one hand, and the thing we have made, and the thing we have made of ourselves, on the other.” 

In other words, success = fulfilling your potential; failure = not. 

If you’re looking for a catalyst towards making your life a success, and want to become all you can in body, mind, and spirit, then join us in The Strenuous Life. Summer enrollment in now open!

What Members Are Saying About The Strenuous Life

The Strenuous Life is an online/offline program designed to help men turn their intentions into actions, do hard things, and become stronger in body, mind, and spirit. We’ve had nearly 9,000 people of all ages and from all walks of life sign up and the feedback has been incredible. 

Here are just a few testimonials from members of the latest cohort of TSL Classes; you can read 400+ more testimonials here.  

I would say to anyone who is considering signing up for The Strenuous Life, don’t hesitate. This has been one of the best things I have done for myself in a long time. As a 40-year-old guy I found the whole program to be fantastic. This 12-week journey really makes you take pause and self evaluate on a regular basis. The structure of the program allows you to take this journey without judgement, but also provides a community that you can check in with and be supportive. I would often find myself inspired by the accomplishments of my classmates on their daily and weekly check-ins. Destitutus ventis, remos adhibe [If the wind does not serve, take to the oars].”

“I initially joined TSL as a way to grow in strength and character, lose weight, and become more useful as a man. During the 12-week boot-camp I was able to complete two badges, both causing me to grow mentally and spiritually as a man. The Agons pushed me in ways I didn’t even realize I needed challenges in, and some have continued as part of my normal routine. The support and friendships I have gained will continue on with me as I now move towards the 52/52 challenge. TSL is the real deal and has been a life changer for me

—Camron F., Class 062

“In the spirit of always seeking to improve myself in mind, body, and soul, I found TSL to be hugely helpful and I am deeply grateful for the experience. As a 55-year-old father of four with an incredible bride by my side, I’ve always tried to instill and teach my brood to work on three fundamental characteristics as they grow: 1) Be a contributor, 2) be a producer, 3) Be accountable for your own actions. TSL helped fortify and show as example, what this looks like and what it takes to continue to improve on these characteristics for me. The daily check-ins have been a monster help to remind me to stay physically active and to be mindful to continue to help others where and when needed. The weekly Agons were of genuine importance to me as it reminded me to work on hard things, things that perhaps a person may not challenge themselves to do. What a feeling of accomplishment and production completing the “challenges” on a weekly basis [gives]. For anyone who is in the frame of mind to better themselves for their own well-being and for others, I would strongly recommend signing up and joining TSL as soon as they can!”

—Brian W., Class 062

“I’ve been a follower and avid reader of The Art of Manliness for some time but was always looking for something a little more. I wanted something that would help me translate those words into real action and a sustained lifestyle change. I found what I was looking for in The Strenuous Life. A group of likeminded people who have held me accountable and helped me in becoming the man I truly want to be.”

—Sam B., Class 062

“I had just turned 51 and life was going well, you know fat and happy. I faced very little challenge in my day-to-day life, and really felt something was missing. It was motivation. I had missed a couple of TSL classes and jumped on Class 064 as soon as I got the email! The motivation to get up and move has helped me lose weight and get back to being physically active. Chasing the Agons and badges have moved me out of my comfort zone to learn new things and have new experiences. One example I can give is the journaling badge; I never
