MON: “Ass to Grass”…Stop Saying That

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

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

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 […]

Career vs. Hobby Coaching. Just, Stop. 

By |June 12th, 2018|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, FCC, Home Page|0 Comments

Career vs. Hobby Coaching. Just, Stop. 
Today is a bit of a follow-up to the video caption I posted yesterday in preparation for our upcoming Coaches Academy. It strikes a major nerve with me when coaching hardos get high and mighty about the fabricated classism gap between career coach and a part-time “hobby” coach. It’s not the […]

My New Role at Performance360

My New Role at Performance360

Confession.

Over the past two years, I have struggled greatly at establishing consistency for myself professionally at Performance360, and it would be a bold faced lie if I said I’ve enjoyed my work this year relative to years passed.

There are some days where I wake up and actually find myself in professional […]

Go On, Take Yourself Too Seriously

Go On, Take Yourself Too Seriously
At the end of the day, we can skew one of two ways when it comes to fitness behavior. We can exercise. Or we can train. I’ve previously written many times about the difference in focus you automatically apply to your routine when you stop viewing it as exercise and start […]

Under Commit, Over Deliver?

By |November 28th, 2017|All Articles, Coach Dave Thomas, Home Page, Tips for Beginners, Training|0 Comments

Under Commit, Over Deliver?
I have never been one for mushy ra-ra type goal chatter. Perhaps it’s the overly, sometimes faulty pragmatic side of me, but I believe that blanket cheerleading for goals does very little help, because the most influential denominator is left out.

The emotional drivers of the individual.

Anyone who has ever worked in customer […]
