starting

I have been listening to a wonderful speaker lately, by the name of Graham Cooke.  A lot of his teachings have to do with our reframing ourselves.  Rather than seeing ourselves as starting from a place of weakness, defeat, sin,

OK, so I was going to have the title of this post be “Ice, Ice, Baby,” so that those of us who are of a certain age would have the song by that same title be stuck in our heads

release

Many of the athletes I work with are at or near the elite level.  They have spent years developing their craft, so that they can be world-class.  Because of this, many of them do not need me to set their expectations.

2016

There have been quite a few social media posts about 2016, and how bad of a year it was.  Phrases such as, “2016! Worst year ever!”  and “2016!  Be done already!” pretty popular right now. Part of me gets it.

team

This summer, we took some athletes to the US Poomsae Team Trials.  The event was at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO.  Most people on the planet will never even visit the OTC, let alone compete at it.

why

I train.  I exercise.  I work out.  All pretty much mean the same thing. I train because when I do, I am a better version of me.  I am a better husband, a better father, and a better son.  I

go

Jim Collin’s calls it “The 20-mile march.”  Seth Godin urges us to ship.  Nike says “Just do it.”  Many others have said it in as many ways: We need to do the hard work, despite it being hard. I have

Resistance band training! Ms Lily and Mr Daniel showing some foam roll drills they learned from Master Wissbroecker.  Great leaders! #team Thank you, Ms Hommer!  It's a pen!  And, it lights up!  Whoo-Hoo! Took a couple hours to read Peak Poomsae's training reflections.  A lot of good feedback from them, and I'm impressed (and not surprised) how articulate they are regarding their training needs and performance. 
Gonna be somethin' this year... Look at these fantastic benches made by Mr Ben Klement!  Thank you, sir! Peak Poomsae writing reflections after training.  Engaging the brain and the body!
