    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

TYLER (KYTX) - It wasn't long ago that a Tyler man stepped on the scale and found himself weighing 262 pounds.  After some trial and error, he found his way back to a healthier weight.  Now he has a website to help people in their journey to Fit City Success.

The goal of Justin Hargrove's website is pretty simple.  He and his partners want to inspire everyone they meet to live a more active lifestyle.  The site is called gohardgrove.com.  That's the way Justin approaches his workouts, "Go Hard!"

"Just try your best everyday and the next day you show up and try a little harder and you will get the results that you want," says Justin Hargrove. 

A few years ago and almost 100 pounds heavier, Justin had one of those light bulb moments.  He decided to go to the gym everyday, find something that sparked his interest and stick to it. That's when Justin found running.

It wasn't easy.  At first he lasted only 3 to 4 minutes, but everyday he set a new goal.

"I just started to see how much more athletic I was getting and how much more endurance I was getting," says Justin.  "And running has a way, there is a rhythm to it and I guess a serenity to it.  You have a job, a stressful life, and you can go out on a run and it all just disappears with the pattern of your footsteps," says Justin. 

Running sparked Justin's competitive side.  He also decided to take on CrossFit Tyler and became addicted.  His running schedule and CrossFit workouts also inspired Justin to make healthier choices in the kitchen.  He's now a lean 165 pounds and has more confidence and energy.
