You’re Not Normal, And That’s Why I Like You

If you’re reading this, you’re my kind of person.

The people who come to this site aren’t just normal humans. They’re the people who are pushing our industry forward.

They challenge their thinking, asking…

Which of my long-held beliefs are no longer serving me?

They push to improve on failures, asking…

Why was I unable to solve this problem?

They even force themselves to re-evaluate things that are working, asking…

How can I make this better?

I just want to say thanks. You’re an inspiration.

What are you working on improving these days? There are a couple of prompts above to get you going. Maybe you want to learn more about movement or get ideas from some new books.

And hey, it’s okay to sit back and enjoy what you’ve done thus far.

Cheers to the future.

Getting Huge While Moving Well

I just saw a comment on one of my daily YouTube videos that shook me.

It’s not that it was particularly scary or outrageous… it just reminded me so much of me.

How do you get huge while nursing your body? Is it even possible?

How do you treat that nagging shoulder/elbow/hip/back/etc but still have fun in the gym?

How do you sweat and make your muscles burn when you feel indefinitely injured?

My Biggest Programming Pivot Since Moving to the Bay

It’s important to identify what you cannot do.

This post is NOT a comparison of private sector coaching and collegiate coaching. I have not worked in a collegiate setting.

This post is NOT a comparison of training athletes general population clients.

What’s the biggest change I’ve had to make? How has my career shifting after leaving the private sector (and Indianapolis) and moving into corporate wellness (mostly).

You’re a Trip, Man

Have you ever gone on a cross-country road trip? Just you, a bag of clothes, and a car?

Have you ever spent extended time alone? On purpose?

A few years ago, I got in my car and started driving west. I’m a creature of comfort. My family is easy to be around. My friends and I have great discussion. I was coaching in a gym that meant so much to me and was a HUGE piece of my development… both as a human, and a coach.

But I needed to break the cycle. I needed to get more UNcomfortable. If I didn’t, I would never grow… at least as much as I expected from myself.

I drove out to Denver, CO from Indy in two days. I stayed at a sketchy hotel on the way out there (there was a sign that said, “Best Western is not responsible if your things are stolen”). I met some Airbnb people and finally saw what mountains look like (this just in: they’re gorgeous). I even went HIKING.

Now that trip… THAT was an experience.

What is the single most important goal of the site? Do you want this to supplement a physical location? Or is this more of an online-only project? Do you have a compelling offer for new customers? Do you have testimonials to show people? Do you have pictures you can use without violating copyright? Do you have someone to write compelling sales text? I can help you work through these questions if we do end up working together.
