I would like to take this time to personally thank you. I realize that you probably get this a lot, but I felt like I should still tell you. I had not played a contact sport in nearly 2 years when I started playing Rugby again last season. I moved from CF to CFFB about 6 months before only because you had us lifting much heavier weight (I like that). Turns out that was the best move I could have done. I live far from my team so I only practiced once a week with them, and I still made the starting squad and had one season with more impressive stats than all my years of High School Rugby. Thanks largely to your training method. On top of that I had a strained MCL and had everyone and their sister telling me how to get it better. After a couple of months of minimal progress, I asked you and got the best advice I had heard. Today, I ran at practice for the first time again and although, I still feel slow I was still one of the faster guys on the field. Thank you so much for the programming, it’s a rare thing when someone of your caliber is willing to help the peons like myself.
Keep up the great work, God bless.
Thanks for updating us on your progress. Reading your email, I was reminded of a quote by Calvin Coolidge.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, ‘press on’ has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race.” – Calvin Coolidge
Hey Kaleb what was the advice for the strain?
Excellent Quote and highly motivational
[…] Persistence and determination […]
I didn’t say that.
That is an awesome quote. I train in jitsu and it’s reminiscent of a lot of what our professor hammers home: show up and train. Bad day? Train. Don’t feel like it? Train. Fight with your wife/husband? Train. Just show up. Persist, do it, work it. Don’t feel like you’re good enough, strong enough? Train. Feel like everyone else is more talented at it than you? Train. I think I keep that at the fore of my thinking more than anything else. Didn’t someone say “the best coaches were the worst athletes?” In other words they earned it through training and persistance.
