You know what Mens Health say you should look like? How they make you feel the need to look like someone who spends all day in the gym? Well yeah, you can look like that, but it won’t necessarily make you happy.
Just do what you want to do. Go for a run. Ride your bike around. Run around playing on the beach. Surf. Kite board. You don’t need to be at the gym. And you don’t need to have a Mens Health body. Here are 4 men who are proof that you don’t need to look like a Mens Health cover model to enjoy life:

And you’ll notice a trend amongst the worlds most successful people, none of them care about the gym. Sure, they may still exercise for health reasons, but they certainly don’t care about sculpting the perfect body.
Drop gym if it doesn’t excite you.
Just do what you want to do.

It’s those advertisments, those marketing people, who have you wanting all this stuff. These supplements. Stuff you don’t need. Stuff they want you to ‘need’

Open your eyes man, there is a whole world out there beyond the gym bubble.

Find it. Experience it.

3 Comments Pharrell Williams Keeping It Low Key With Red Boat Shoes

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 19 Jan 2011 , in the Fashion & Grooming category

I’m not going to lie to you, I’m a huge Pharrell Williams fan, just purely for the way he lives his life. He is just cool. Never in the press for the wrong reasons, in fact, never really in the press. Just doing what he loves. Keeping at it. Keeping inspired. And I was at Country Road about two weeks ago, and there were some boat shoes there. Now I’m a Sebago Docksides fan, but there were a pair from Country Road for R399 on sale. They were red. A little crazy, but with so few pairs left I had to make a quick decision. I hate impulse buys, and it’s not unusual for me to spend two months planning my next purchase. So this was unusual for me, and I bought them. As I walked out, I was thinking ‘Crisis Sean, you now own a pair of red boat shoes. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?’ But then I thought, hell, I like red in small doses. They’ll look cool with the slim cut Nudie jeans. And a white v-neck t shirt, which I’m known to wear most of the time.

Now I’ll admit, the cut and quality isn’t Docksides, but for R400 you can’t even get a decent pair of canvas shoes. At some places you can’t even get a t-shirt for that price, so I’ll take them. These photos above were the photos I was going to post to ‘Change Room Superhero’ (A new addition to SLXS that I will be adding soon)

Those are the Docksides in the photo with the Country Road.

But my doubts have gone away, now that I see Pharrell Williams is kicking back in the same look as me.
