Chapter One begins with Minsoo Go's journey into fitness and details on her back story. It gets into values and perceptions of fitness, growth through fitness, and the importance of consistency. Reda's story provides inspiration on how being active gave him a new lease on life and changed his mindset. The chapter ends with thoughts on how to overcome fears and how to push yourself to keep going back to fitness day by day and week by week to see its benefits. Chapter Two explains that fitness is different for everyone in how it works for them in mind and body. Everyone is different, and there is no 'cookie cutter' solution for anyone. You have to stick with a program, try a few, and see what works for you. You can automate fitness and eventually, it becomes a lifestyle. This chapter also includes a personal story featuring Minsoo's brother Beyong-Hun and his struggles until finding fitness, making positive changes in his life and those around him. Chapter Three explains that fitness has a base in fundamental moves and focus. You learn about your body and how it works first, so you can proceed to more advanced workouts and see results over time. It explains that numbers are important, but they are metrics, not goals themselves. Lose weight, have a thinner waistline, but ultimately your goal is to see positive change in your life and to maintain a healthy, balanced lifestyle. This is what puts you on a successful path. The next chapter covers adjustments that you must make to your standards of living. This is the toughest part to understand. If you can't find time for fitness or don't see it's value, or convince yourself not to do it, it isn't going to work. Fitness must take priority, and you have to believe that you can do it - achieve fitness goals and goals in your life. Chapter Four includes Tim Caldwell's story, and the message that you never have to give up on yourself. You can achieve anything if you surround yourself with the right people and believe that you can live a good life no matter what the circumstances. The final chapter looks at success, not giving up, and ways to keep yourself on-track. First, Minsoo talks about her 'dark' year after her break-up. She doesn't give up on fitness, and argues that it was the best decision she made to train, and it became her center. She shares Wayne DeMilia's story and his battle with cancer. He was given only a few months to live, but he didn't shut down. He ate clean, trained, and does everything he can to keep the cancer from coming back. He's survived many years longer than any doctor thought he could. Minsoo also introduces her Vision Card and how anyone can use it when they feel like they want to give up, or start to think they aren't good enough. Overall, the book provides insight into Minsoo's life, and those she is inspired by to send a message to you that you can find The Go Standard in yourself. In doing so, you can find value in fitness, believe in yourself and your own beauty, and put yourself on a path to success.
