Together We are Stronger

Jimmi pushing hard through 14.5!

Jimmi pushing hard through 14.5!

This was taken from a recent Facebook post by Mobility WOD. It really touched a chord in me and I find it both inspiring and humbling. This will speak to you more if you are a coach than an athlete, but I think all will benefit from reading this. To all of the athletes out there, take this to heart your coach wants what is best for you and wants you to reach your full potential. Take every advantage you can of the vast amount of resources available. COMPLETELY IMMERSE YOURSELF! This level of commitment will pay dividends that you can’t possibly fathom. Please read, enjoy, and implement.

“We are living in an epoch.

For the the first time in human history, disparate sports, coaches, and athletes are able to share information and best practices. There has been no single larger influence on the field of human performance than the internet. You may think that the best coaches on earth would fight to protect and guard their accumulated knowledge, but reality is far from it. Coaches around the planet are feeding forward their best thinking and concepts to be rigorously tested by literally millions of users. The risk of remaining anonymous is the risk of being irrelevant. The risk of hoarding best practices is the risk of not contributing to the greatest era of human performance ever.

We believe that all good coaches and athletes are working at the limits of their understanding to solve a similar set of problems. To discount new thinking or modifications in technique is a significant error. As coaches we should not be quick to reject out of hand people’s considerable experience and due diligence. We should strive to understand how and why a coach or athlete thinks the way they do. We should evaluate their models and incorporate what we think is valuable.

Show me a better way. I’m in.”

DAILY FEATURE: Wrapping Up the 2014 Open

20140403-155625.jpgFor someone who has been heavily into the world of fitness for years now, I have to say that successfully completing the 2014 CF Open is one of my biggest accomplishments to date. Going in, I had no idea what was going to happen and, to be honest, my expectations as far as my performance was concerned were not all that high. However, I was determined to at a minimum complete all of the WODs. Every week, I set a goal for myself as far as results in each workout. I kept these goals realistic, but certainly not easy to reach. No that its all said and done, I can happily report that I surpassed the goal I set for myself in all five of the WODs! Next year I set my sights a bit higher and will prepare as such. Progression, progression, progression!
