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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Where Functional Fitness Can Miss the Mark
In functional fitness we love to talk about all the ways we are superior, don’t we? However, we have to be careful not to get too caught up in our own press clippings because there are some ways we can easily miss the mark when it comes to building […]

What is Fitness?

What is Fitness?
There is perhaps not a more subjective term in exercise than “fitness.” The word is going to evoke vastly different meanings for every individual applying it. For some, it may be the specialist version of fitness. Running thirty miles a week, focused on 1 – 5 rep lifts for strength, yoga, or some […]
