Back to the blog, and in the words of the newly popular CT Fletcher, I command you to GROW! Real quick, if you're not a fan of vulgar language, don't click on that link, Fletcher doesn't hold back in the least!
But in light of the concept of growing, I want to talk about all the ways I am, and my wonderful world of Courage Performance is growing. First, the training program. I have been hard at work designing a program that will help me reach all my goals. As of now, I'm not 100% on exactly what the end goal is, but I'm pretty sure I'll be making a run at the CrossFit Regionals yet again next year. In the meantime, I want to get stronger, build on my Olympic Weightlifting, get outside way more, and get to gymnastics 1-3 times per week. Yep, I am headed to a gymnastics center and getting some work down with a coach and it is freaking AWESOME! I just want to have fun, keep getting better on a regular basis, and learn how to never get burned out; and that's the hardest part. I think having specific short term goals to work towards decreases the amount of stress focusing on long term ones generally has on me. So, I make small goals and attack them. I'll be posting up my and the rest of my Teams goals in a week or so.
This leads me to Team Courage. I've started up a small group of awesome athletes who are really serious about their training. We've all hit it off and have been working hard to get stronger and stronger each and every day. There is nothing quite like having a group of hard working athletes to push and to push you. While I love my alone time and will always find ways to get out on my own to workout, I hope to always have some sort of support system around me throughout all the ups and downs of training. You'll all be hearing plenty about this Team as we grow, do some damn cool things in the gym, and have some adventures in the fitness world.
As for the gym, or should I say gymS! Well, they are growing! Back East we are pumped to be in such a perfect place for the summer influx of athletes and we've been getting emails left and right from athletes and teams looking to see how they too can use Courage Performance to get better and better. We've set up a standard for training in the DC area for athletes that has proven to be the best. While it's tough to be all the way across the country during all this, it's awesome to have a sort of objective view on all the hard work I've put into the East Coast program over the past 9 years. Turns out my ideas of what works for athletes seems to be working, and well! And out here with me, in wonderful California, the gym is growing every day. I have already expanded the class schedule, officially brought in 20 athletes for summer training (and am expecting 20+ more in the next month), have a growing kids program, am spreading the word on the Courage Barbell Club, and have been adding to the look and supplies of the big Orange and Black awesomeness that is the gym! Next week I'll be at the Olympic training Center getting my USAW (USA Weightlifting) certification, and in September I'll be getting my Catalyst Athletics Weightlifting certification (the first ever course for this cert). While my number one goal is to bring athletes and clients in, I will always find time to continue to educate myself to offer the absolute best to everyone who looks to Courage Performance for help.
Finally, in light of all this growth, I am re-focusing my efforts on streamlining everything in the Courage Performance nation. Committing to keeping the website updated and fun, blogging on a regular basis, sharing videos and pics of all my adventures, and officially marketing the concept of Courage performance to the world. I am excited for all this growth
