Make Your Momentum at BattleBorn

Local company who makes some BAD ASS shirts are now carried at BattleBorn.  Help spread the word of this local company to those around you, sport some great clothes and help a number of LOCAL non-profits.

MAKE YOUR MOMENTUM is not a motto; it’s a lifestyle attitude that will transform your life as it’s transformed ours.  It’s a conscious decision one makes in the race to redefine one’s self-worth and authenticity.  This phrase not only promotes self-awareness but sparks the idea that anything’s possible if you fully put your mind to it.  We know this much because we’re proof of that.

We started out as an idea only supported by a message which struck a chord and inspired us.  We gave this idea a firm foundation for growth and the idea grew wings.  Without generating momentum this thought wouldn’t stand a chance to take flight and soar as it was so destined to do.  We started this business the best way we knew how, though a t-shirt doesn’t completely justify the philosophy.
 
It’s your DESIRE and how badly you want it.  It’s your DRIVE and how far you’ll go to get it.  It’s those characteristics that inspire perseverance and gratification, the means to a conceptually limitless life.
 
Not only does MAKE YOUR MOMENTUM inspire from within; but, our goals as a company are to give back to our communities and the folks unable to make their own momentum and a portion of each sale will be donated to local non-profit organizations (in Reno, NV).  With a message we proudly stand behind and the help from you, we will continue to make great impacts in the lives of others and the lives of ourselves.

5 Habits Of Effective Coaches

By Greg Robins | In Sports Training | on April 29, 2015 
                                                                                                
Unfortunately, I have found that many professionals in the sports performance industry separate themselves far too distantly from the last word in most of their titles: COACH.

While JTS has become a forum largely filled with information on strength sports and the close approximations, I do not consider myself a lifter or an athlete. I am, and will always be, a coach.  While you may not find yourself in a similar role, I do believe you will find the following information pertinent to your role as a contributing member of society. There is a shortage of quality leaders, and I challenge you to think about how you might apply the following to your day-to-day relationships.
Greg Robins is a competitive lifter, but a coach first and foremost.
Greg Robins is a competitive lifter, but a coach first and foremost.
Lastly, I find this information timely given that JTS will soon welcome their inaugural class of interns.

Recently, we hired a terrific individual to coach at our facility. Oddly enough, I found myself writing a letter of recommendation for this person a few weeks prior.  Our coaching staff made it a point to sway our facility owners to hire this individual, even though at the time we probably didn’t need another coach on the floor.  I would like to begin this article with a glimpse into this letter. The character traits described must be present before any talk of effective coaching habits can ensue.
I have changed the audience to be more general.

I am fortunate that my role at Cressey Sports Performance has allowed me to mentor over 70 interns in three years; people whom I view to be the potential leaders of the strength and conditioning world in years to come. This, coupled with my nearly 10 years of experience in the industry, and five years in a military leadership role, has given me a unique perspective in assessing the quality of both an individual at a personal, as well as professional, level. It speaks highly that upon requesting my recommendation I didn’t even have to bat an eye before willingly agreeing to give him my highest accolades. Here’s why.

Having had the experience of working in both the college sector and private sector of performance enhancement, I know that the right person for this position must be: a talented coach, eager student, and quality person.

A talented coach is a great mind, a great teacher, and a willing subject.

A coach must first be an excellent teacher. It is fair to say that the greatest amount of knowledge is rather useless if it cannot be applied effectively to the athlete. The quality in which the exercise is carried out is far more important than the quality of the plan or program laid out. The best can supply both an intelligent plan and the means in which to carry it out correctly; this is a rare combination.
A quality coach has a vast amount of his or her own ‘in the gym’ experience. I cannot stress enough how important this is to the success of a program, and to a coach in this industry. Too often I see coaches who do not walk the walk. Hiring anyone short of someone who has put his or her own time in learning first hand how to move, and perform better, is a grave mistake. One can coach and teach because they continually apply lessons learned for themselves first. Helping people learn anything is about knowing how to create context. If you as a coach can create context, that alone makes you a stand-out candidate.

I’ve already commented on this in depth here at JTS, but it bears repeating: Great coaches operate with a growth mindset. This is crucial to being successful in rapidly changing, and improving industry. You must be a student of strength and conditioning, willing to go the extra mile to better your understanding of human performance. The college and professional sector in particular is inundated with coaches who do not challenge the status quo, both within the system they are in, and in the field itself. No program should want to hire a follower; they should want leaders. Leaders put in the time to learn, and to find solutions for how to make a system better. Coaches are leaders.

More than anything a true coach is a quality person. They are genuine, honest, and driven. I ultimately evaluate our interns not on my perception of their character, but our athlete’s perspective. A coach approaches each athlete with a smile, and personable tone, genuinely engaging them with interest and warmth.

The qualities described above lay the foundation for being a coach. These items must be addressed first, and in many cases they cannot be taught. Rather, they are a question of an individual’s motivation, make-up, and concern for improving the performance and lives of the athletes they are fortunate enough to work with.

31 HEROES - 5th annual registration open

OUR MISSION


Established to honor the 30 Americans and one working dog killed in action on August 6, 2011, The 31Heroes Project assists athletes and event organizers who want to make a difference in the lives of our nation’s warriors and their families.
 

OUR STORY

On August 6, 2011, a tragedy shook the military community and Americans everywhere. In a single instance, America lost 30 military service members, many of whom were members of the Navy SEAL community—and one military K9– when an Extortion 17 helicopter was downed in Afghanistan.
In the wake of the unimaginable tragedy, a mission was born. Following the downing of Extortion 17, a fundraising WOD—hosted at more than 430 gyms around the country with more than 10,000 participants—raised $300,000 over a four-week period to support the 30 families affected. This prompted the organizers to create The 31Heroes Project to remember our fallen heroes and take care of their loved ones.
Humbled by the massive response and inspired by the impact on the families of these heroes, 31Heroes recognized an opportunity to reach even more families. Soon, new events and WODs were organized with the help of a growing network of passionate volunteers.
Today, we assist athletes and event organizers around the country with tools and resources to continue the legacy of selflessness and comradery of August 6, 2011.
Through partnerships with organizations including the Navy SEAL Foundation and Travis Manion Foundation we can ensure that all proceeds directly fund programs that support service members and their families.
Since our first events in 2011, more than $1.5 million has been given back to our nation’s heroes and their families through these partnership programs.
They’ve left behind more than just memories. They’ve given us a legacy to honor. Together, we can ensure the mission to honor the fallen lives on.

WHAT IS THE 31HEROES WOD?


The 31Heroes WOD (workout of the day) was specifically designed to remember the fallen heroes of August 6, 2011 and honor their legacy of sacrifice.
For the athletic community, this is our moment of silence.
This is how we remember. This is how we come together to support those who’ve fought for us.
The 31Heroes WOD is more than a workout.
This is a mission to give back to those who’ve given their all.
Grab a partner, and join the team.
