People of Fenton: senior Andrew Fox

“Throughout my time here at Fenton and before then, I always looked forward and wanted to take every opportunity that could be afforded to me. I have dreams of playing college baseball and so many others, so whatever I thought provided a route, I took. Concerning weights and all the benefits it offers: I credit most, if not all, of my successes and opportunities from the work I put in through it. The benefits of it have improved every aspect of my life, from my personality and mindset, to my physical ability & aesthetic. I have stuck with it for years because there is no negative to it. The weight room will give to you what you give to it. However, there have been times where I could not always get into FHS’s weight room. Without a job, it has been hard to find a good gym that keeps the costs down, so much of my work was calisthenics related to. Nonetheless, I put in great work and also managed to find body awareness and be able to maneuver greatly with this type of work. Having no access to a weight room should not deter one from working. A quote from Socrates, one of the greatest philosophers known, ‘no citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever the strength and beauty of which his body is capable,’ has helped me to begin and stay with it. It has set me apart from my peers, I believe. It has taught me gumption, and given me a desire to win and be the best at what I do. There is much more I can say, but the feeling of working and knowing that you are doing well for yourself is the greatest feeling. I believe my story is just one of the many from people who work for everything. The journey is more than the reward.”
