What is Faster Stronger Wiser?

Faster Stronger Wiser is a concept that I came up with to describe my style of fitness training. I always strive to be better than I was the day before, and that applies to my physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The term Faster Stronger Wiser originates from the order in how my body developed. I was always fast, but not strong. When I developed my strength, I didn’t know how to use it.  As a result, I had to acquire wisdom. This concept was applied to all my training routines. Before becoming a certified personal trainer, I was rehabilitating my knee back to 100 percent due to a bad injury during at a basketball game. My primary concern was getting back my speed. In the process, I started to lift weights and focus on full body strengthening exercises. This allowed me to develop unknown strength levels within myself. The wisdom portion comes from me learning how to work out. Throughout the course of getting my first two fitness certifications, I took multiple fitness classes from Cycling to Pilates. I studied all types of workout techniques and spent my time at work learning multiple exercises for all muscle groups. This process led me to becoming a successful personal trainer. I had serviced a little over 8,000 private sessions between three gyms, and taught over a hundred group classes. My first two clients went on to become personal trainers themselves and I even took part in the creation of my own classes. I began to apply the faster stronger wiser mindset to my day to day life outside of fitness. In relation to school, I would focus on finishing my assignments faster so they would never be late. I focused on reading more of? to be a stronger learner, and I took time out to understand the material that the courses provided to become a wiser student. Before I applied this methodology, I was on the verge of quitting school.   However, I finished with my Bachelors of Science in Business and went on to pursue my MBA in Business the following year. After seeing the success of this method in my career and school life, I applied this method to my spiritual life. My belief in God is what kept me strong for the two years I spent recovering from a knee injury with no insurance and no professional assistance. I relied on several healing scriptures such as "Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled." (Psalms 6:2 NKJV), and "He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction." (Psalms 107:20 NKJV) I applied the methodology that God blessed me to know as "Faster Stronger Wiser", and I was fast to read the word. I was strong willed in avoiding temptations to give up, and turn my back on God, and I was wiser by taking time to understand the message in the scriptures I was reading. The methodology of Faster Stronger Wiser helped me get through so much in my life that I started to design workout routines with that concept in mind.

Biography:

My name is Glenn Payne Jr. I’m a certified personal trainer and the creator of the training concept Faster Stronger Wiser. The concept faster Stronger Wiser is to have a “faster mind”, a “stronger body”, and a “wiser spirit”. I was born in Washington D.C. and raised in Pasadena, California. As a child I was very athletic, so I strived towards a career in sports. My dreams of playing professional basketball led me to Dallas, Texas where I played three years for the United Basketball League. In 2009 I dislocated my knee midway into my first semi pro basketball season. I spent 2 years rehabilitating myself back to playing shape and my faith grew stronger through the process. With no insurance I was forced to rehabilitate myself. Instead of giving up I spent months studying kinesiology and rehabilitative exercises.  After my rehab I noticed I was a faster and stronger player than I was before I was injured. I was also a lot wiser due to me studying the human body to speed up my recovery. That's where the concept Faster Stronger Wiser came from. People noticed a major change in my performance and physique and wanted to know how I got that way so I decided to pursue a career in personal training.
