The Mind of the Athlete

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

While meeting with Jason C. Brown and Zach Even Esh at the Hammer Strength Clinic, I also sat in on several other lectures, one of which was Sports Psychologist Dr. Jarrod Spencer’s lecture on the mind of an athlete.

Not long after my drive to Columbus for the XPC Semi-finals I heard that Hammer Strength was having a Wrestling Clinic at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.

Good Morning, Boston!! I rolled out of bed with as much grace as I could muster, put myself together and headed to the B&B’s dining room where Daryl had prepared an amazing homemade breakfast.

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Yes, I realize that this is an absurdly long title; however I wanted to emphasize my excitement in going to Boston for the first time.

Shaping Minds and Bodies

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Following a riveting conversation at Subway with Ken Stabler of TFW Ropestone, I jumped in my Outlander and headed to Mahopac, New York, the hardest city for me to pronounce since Mississauga!
