Telling a journey through life about health, fitness, mental toughness, building businesses, raising three kids, and personal growth.

Episode number 4 of The Dillon Burns Method is live! Being that this was recorded on July 3rd, I thought it fitting to get some thoughts out there on my individual freedoms and how I view freedom in general.

SPOILER: It’s not what you think. Yes, there are some of…


Challenge: Run 1 mile every hour for 24 hours without sleeping. On the 24th hour, run 3.2 miles to finish at full marathon distance.

THIS. WAS. TOUGH.

Imagine not going to sleep and having to run every single hour for 24 hours; ya, that thought you just had was exactly…


Before//After

IT ALL STARTED IN OCTOBER

October 2020 I decided I needed to commit to the 75HARD Challenge by Andy Frisella. If you don’t already know what this is, it’s a “mental toughness” challenge designed to take control of your inner-bitch voice and take back control of your life.

Here are the specifics — Every day…


DO HARD SHIT: EVERY DAY

THE TIME HAS COME TO PLAN THE NEXT YEAR!

Are you onboard or are you already falling behind? …


DO HARD SHIT: EVERY DAY

I think we all take things for granted in life, meaning that the things we expect to happen and be “there” for us daily, the things that happen automatically or on auto-pilot, are just baked into our lives.

For myself, I try to be hyper-aware…


DO HARD SHIT: EVERY DAY

The year is coming to an end, but I am not finished yet. Like I said before, this has been a year of MASSIVE ACTION & tremendous growth in my life in all areas. To wrap the year up, I’ll still be putting in work…

DO HARD SHIT: EVERY DAY

As I wrap up my year and put everything into perspective, I’ll try to capture the raw emotions that have come along with the past 365 days.

Life is a cycle of ups and downs, highs and lows, positives and negatives, and everything else in between. All I can do is FIGHT to keep my head above water; FIGHT to stay alive; FIGHT to stay positive; FIGHT to keep the love in my heart; FIGHT to make them proud; FIGHT to lead a life worth living; FIGHT to make every chapter of my life something worth reading about.

This year has been so much more than just a list of bullet points or checks in boxes…


DO HARD SHIT: EVERY DAY

I have a confession to make: I’M NOT FUCKING PERFECT. No one is.

Having said that, I fucked up and I need to come clean (not that I lied to anyone about this). Quarter III challenge was a body composition challenge and I botched it…


DO HARD SHIT: EVERY DAY

The journey to rowing 50,000m for my quarter 2 mental/physical challenge was hard fought and definitely warranted; warranted because I had put it off for the longest time. You see, a few years back the CrossFit Games athletes rowed a marathon which is 42,197m in…
