As I gear up to head out to what looks like a fun Team Competition (Team SuperFit, this coming weekend) I wanted to just share with all you readers what i got going on. The main thing is that I am moving back out to California (if you didn't already know that). I will be leaving the DC area in two weeks and am so excited for everything the future holds. I will be taking over the old CrossFit San Mateo building to run Courage Performance while CrossFit San Mateo moves a couple buildings down to a little bigger spot. I have a house already, and a ton of great contacts to get things rolling the second I get out there! Additionally, I will be programming for CrossFit San Mateo, as well as my gym and for a group of pretty serious CrossFitters, and I will be looking to take my programming skills to a new level. That means I'll be programming for gyms, while also helping coaches to get a little more involved with getting their members and athletes that much better at life! There are a lot of great things I'm prepping for over the next year or so out there so I'll save the details for another post. Needless to say, I'm pretty amped up to get out there and really settle down with the life I dream of. I feel badly leaving all the great people I've become so close with in the DC area, but I know that most of you know how important being out West is for me, so I'm sure we'll all be in a good place very quickly.
Directly in line with my move, I am excited to announce the creation of Courage Performance East. A long time client and friend of mine who became an employee this summer is taking over the East Coast branch of the company and I could not be happier. Andrew Whitener knows my training style inside and out, understands how I tick and will represent the brand wonderfully. And he himself has a pretty cool background, Graduate from Wilson High School here in the district, then went off to get his degree at Princeton University where he played some damn competitive baseball. Know he's pursuing a life in the fitness industry and I trust he'll just take off with Courage performance East. So, if you're a DC area resident, and you want to train under my programming and style, make sure to get in touch with Whitey and get to training! And, in addition, we are unofficially going to be running out of a really cool place very, very soon. I won;t announce that until things get more official, but we are so stoked to be asked to be a apart of what's about to happen.
And speaking of programming: Whitey and I are starting up the second phase of The Courage Strength Program and it just continues to blow my mind at the gains people are having on this! On my 3 rep max week I PR'd the squat at 445# and the bench at 300. With all my other lifts getting better and better, I can see a very bright future for this program for anyone who just wants to get straight up strong and athletic. I have mentioned it before, I mention it here, and I am sure I'll be writing about this thing is some crazy detail sometime over the winter.
Ok, so on to the blog. As I know all of you are aware of, I have been pretty sparse in posting. So, I am recommitting myself to the blog! Starting October 1st I will be posting on a very regular basis. I have planned that it will be mostly my streams of consciousness, along with some of the old training posts and videos that i have gotten away from in the past year. You may see a return of some of the "Courageous Meals", "best Of's", and a few more things as well. I just miss getting on this site almost every day and sharing my life with people.
So, with the move out to California comes a new beginning to my life. A great training program, a Courage Performance gym, a new house, a re-assessed and focused blog, and probably a good deal of other things. A I explained to a couple friends: I see a light at the end of the tunnel. It's a incredibly bright light, and the tunnel is very short. I see good things in my very near future and that is a good thing. I hope the end of summer brought some good to everyone out there, and you all have some good, positive things planned for the fall. I hope all of you will enjoy my getting back into regular blogging, and can find some inspiration in my words. Please share them with your friends and family if you do! I have some small aspirations to get some more writing published on some other sites and blogs.
Courage Bars!! (you'll be seeing a come-back of these wonderful treats very soon after I move)
