WED: “Behind the Whiteboard” – Phase 1
About four years ago, we made a dramatic course correction that’s been the single largest driver of improvement we’ve ever made.

A dedicated novice onboarding program.

I’m not talking about a two week foundations course. I am talking about a developmental multi-month program that runs parallel to the rest of training. […]

TUES: The Goal Setting Path to Sanity
We are maddening creatures.

We want to achieve certain outcomes in life, only, there are habits we all have that we aren’t willing to give up. So what ends up happening to a lot of us is a cycle of trying hard to get the thing, without ever actually getting […]

FRI: “By and Large”

FRI: “By and Large”
Dalio has a concept in his book Principles that clarified the way we attempt to educate here at this gym in a way that few have.

He stakes the claim that in general, starting with our education system, we are all way too hung up on precise quantifications, when it is that exact obsessive way […]

TUE: “Garbage Volume”
I saw Jason Archibald talking about the concept of garbage volume the other day, and that term stood out to me as exceptional. In two words, it conveyed exactly what mindless, careless high reps equate to be for us: garbage.

It’s very easy to see days with lots of reps on the board and […]

TUES: Healing in the Gym
I’ve had this conversation about emotional drive in the gym with a lot of members over the years. In my most recent continuing education outing at the StrongFit seminar last month, it was something that quite simply was the underlying focus.

Anxiety is something that a LOT of us deal with on […]

WED: “One In, One Out”

WED: “One In, One Out”
There are club people and there are bar people.

Bar people find little gratification in waiting half an hour in line, in clothes they don’t want to wear, only to pay a cover and enter a place where drinks cost $17 and they can’t hear themselves talk.

Sorry club friends, but give me […]

WED: My Paradigm Shift as a Woman
I recently had my 4 year coaching anniversary a couple months ago, and then passed my 5 year member anniversary last week. Right in between those two points fell my 34th birthday, and the mark of a decade here in San Diego. Yes. 34. I’m sure you’re all extremely […]
