    Don’t Retrospect & Replicate

     Don’t retrospect & replicate, what does that even mean? All too often, in the years that I’ve been involved in the Health & Fitness industry, there seems to be a common modus operandi that pops up, or let me rephrase, a statement that is commonly heard by coaches, trainers and any sort of fitness/movement experts...

    Coaching or Over-Coaching?

    I would like to think that all coaches/trainers pride themselves as being technical or hailed as perfectionists when it comes to movement mechanics, but this type of approach to training can also have its downside, This is known as over-coaching.   This is something that I personally have battled with over the years in the...

    Transitions in Training

    I’m sure you’ve sat down after completing the open and reverted back to the proverbial “Drawing board” to regroup, restructure and re-strategize? (I most certainly more than just after the open) It’s a natural thing to look for ways to improve on past performances. I get that finding the ideal training program, nutrition, rest and...

    Don’t Give Yourself The Benefit Of The Doubt

    What Does That Have To Do With Training? I joke about it all the time when I’m coaching particularly with the 07:30am crew. “Don’t give yourself the benefit of the doubt when working out” Scenario: halfway through a spicy chipper and you’re 30 reps deep into set of 50 wall balls which you planned to do...

    Coaches & Competitors Following Their Own Programming

    The issue of coaches and competitors following their own programming as opposed to following the programming done for the box,  is one that I feel boxes are a bit too blase about.
