There are people who have played an enormous role in my development as both an athlete and a coach. Without this man I wouldn’t be the person I am today. He helped me to believe in myself, taught me how to access the talent I have within me, and he taught me how to be humble. His teachings and philosophies have helped form the basis of the things I’ve taught over the years and that I still teach today. It was an honour and privilege to work with Shah Franco today.  After all this time it’s like nothing has changed. I’m forever grateful to him

Note about the training: Day to day entries will change. Some entires will be workouts I have done that day, some entries will be workouts that people I train did that day. Some entries will be my favorite all time workouts or something I saw on the internet that I thought would be good for you to experience. Remember that because of the changing nature of the entries these workouts are not meant to be prescriptive. For example they aren’t necessarily written down with the intention of you following them precisely. Rather, they are meant to collectively build a resource that you can learn from. Hopefully you can implement some of these ideas and workouts into your own training in order to better your fitness.

Also note that I won’t be posting at the same time every day. If I workout early then it might get posted early. If I workout late then it might get posted late. If I am in  different time zone then hell, I don’t know what time it will show up. Just a head’s up. That said, I will do my best to get them to you in a timely fashion. You have my word on that but remember I don’t have an army of internet monkeys at my beck and call. I am doing this on my own…
