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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Under Commit, Over Deliver?

By |2019-09-18T03:20:50-07:00November 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 [...]

How to Be Successful in the Gym Long-Term Here's a few thoughts I've compiled over the years through observation of highly successful members long-term. 1. Be Shortsighted. Long to-do lists don't get completed. Short ones do. It doesn't make much sense to write down seven different goals that you want to achieve since you can't [...]

How to Land Properly

How to Land Properly "I'm learning to fly, but I ain't got wings Coming down, is the hardest thing." -Tom Petty Not only is that my favorite Tom Petty song, but it doubles as a nice metaphor for leaving our feet in fitness, because coming down really is the hardest thing in the world of [...]
