First Steps | Origin Story | Episode 1
It's like an anime montage, but slowed down! Allow me to introduce John Duffy, my newest, and possibly most difficult student. Starting at 425 pounds of weight and a metric ton of fear, Duffy has a long way to go, but a great motivation driving him forwards.
In this first episode, I wanted to start by testing Duffy's ability - or lack thereof - with a metcon.

A Talk About Groceries
Stephen takes Duffy on a trip through the grocery store and explains the fundamentals about food and shopping. There is no understating the importance of these fundamentals. This the reason for granting this discussion the prominence of "Day Two."
How To Throw A Punch Someone In The Face
A hero who cannot fight is severely limited and inefficient. This is why Stephen wants to put Duffy through some combat training. Knowing how to punch someone in the face is an incredibly useful skill.
Today, Duffy learned the jab. Being able to throw a straight jab is just as important as being able to snap the fist back towards yourself instantly. This isn't something Duffy is particularly good at, but with practice he - just like you - can master it.
