The expression “No pain, no gain” is widely used in pop culture. The gist of the expression is in order to see any advancement (whether it be in a physical or mental skill), there has to be a period of discomfort a person must endure.

The filmmakers as well as the cast endured brutal conditions and injuries (including broken vertebrae) to complete the film about hiking up Mount Denali in Alaska in order to ski/board down it. Let us take a lesson from them and shred through the pain!
