TUES: Now is Better Than Perfect
General Patton once said that a good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.

So many of you out there have great intentions that are slowed by self doubt, and great ideas that are crippled by the false idea that for an idea to be […]

THUR: Can Introverts Lead?

THUR: Can Introverts Lead?
Aside from my former baseball dugouts, I’ve never been comfortable in a room full of people in my entire life.

Those who are energized by interacting with people will never understand the experience of discomfort for those who aren’t. They often think that we are aloof, shy, unfriendly, and don’t like people, when […]

WED: Welcoming Doesn’t Mean Tolerant of Apathy
Over the seven years we’ve existed, we’ve been told countless times that we’re the most welcoming gym someone has attended.

We are welcoming, yes. We spend time as a staff on this and to be honest, probably allocate as many resources towards our execution of this than any fitness principle […]

TUES: Study for the Test

TUES: Study for the Test
There’s a saying that we impress upon coaches at our Academy and that is, “Study for the test.”

What we mean is, put people in a position to succeed.

We all went through the arbitrary nature of pop quizzes throughout school, and most of the time, we didn’t do so well. However, that […]

MON: “Ass to Grass”…Stop Saying That

By |September 9th, 2018|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, Daily Workout Blog, FCC, Home Page, Today's Workout|0 Comments

MON: “Ass to Grass”…Stop Saying That
“Ass to grass” is the single most dangerous colloquialism to ever hit the functional fitness landscape.

I will repeat that.

Single most dangerous..to ever hit the functional fitness landscape.

While I have no doubts that the idea was born in the right place, that more range of motion is better than less, it […]

MON: “First…Then.”

By |August 26th, 2018|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, Daily Workout Blog, Home Page, Today's Workout|0 Comments

MON: “First…Then.”
First, eat. Then, drink tequila shots.

First, have a short list. Then, ask your significant other where they want to eat.

First, strength. Then, conditioning.

There’s a reason that what’s associated with “first” always exists above “then” in the hierarchy of importance, and in the case of fitness, the careful terminology that we use at the gym […]

WED: Great Expectations

WED: Great Expectations
Ridiculously common if you coach people or own a gym, the “fitness rut” is one of the most mistreated ailments in all of fitness mentality. We far too often examine the solution, and ignore the cause. We prescribe a number of strategies in attempt to re-configure behavior that will lead to habit. We […]

TUES: Be #Basic
There’s typical a cycle to any form of result, regardless of the pursuit. Throw out the fact we’re a gym and you can likely transfer this cycle to your career, or any other personal endeavor.

At first, you follow the basics to very real success. You follow 101 course material and you get straight […]

6 Leadership Lessons I’ve Learned
Going from just the two of us (cue Will Smith) in a single boathouse to a team of sixteen and three gyms over the last seven years has provided me a crash course in leadership. Along the way, I’ve learned some very valuable lessons.

Here’s a short list of six that stand […]
