“Get Woke” And Reach Your Athletic Potential

Imagine having it all figured out. Your weaknesses are not your proverbial weaknesses anymore. Your strengths are always strong and primed.

Imagine if you knew your training mistakes before you made them ... so you didn't have to make them! I know that's wishful thinking ... And it's not how "adulting" or life works. You learn hard lessons the hard way, the old fashioned way. It costs you time. Money. Maybe a bit of sanity.
