I am a highly motivated Coach. I feel this is a fault, perhaps not though? You can comment below and drop your thoughts as my mind wanders too much. I find myself louder, more aggressive and more intense than 99.9% of my athletes. I want them to train harder, rest less, move heavier weights.
I sometimes wonder why I am so loud and excited and they seem so quiet. I try to calm down and let them take the wheel. I wait to see if they will have intrinsic motivation. A few are animals and show the eye of the tiger, others seem to be searching for that inner animal. Perhaps it just isn't there?
Here and there a parent tells me they will no longer have little Johnny continue training at The Underground Strength Gym due to finances yet little Johnny has a Lexus or an Infiniti at the age of 17. He doesn't have a job either. Finances? Naaaaaa. Different priorities? Yes.
If finances are a problem and you're a young lad go get a job and help Mom and Dad, NOT for gym membership, but because it's the RIGHT thing to do. If you don't want to be a kick ass athlete and don't enjoy a brutally challenging workout we don't want you here anyway.
Other times they say Little Johnny is too busy. Too busy to train 1 or 2 hours each week? I am confused. What does Little Johnny do after school? Is there really 6 hours of homework every day?
At The Underground Strength Gym, we are not training to fit in with others and to become part of Team Average. Sorry, we're here to be front and center of Team Ass Kicker. Period. Need I explain any further?
The world has enough lazy excuse makers but The Underground doesn't have room for ONE such athlete who doesn't demand excellence of himself.
Watch the video below and ask yourself if you too have such desire.
Notice the Coach did NOT make any special treatments for the aspiring boxer. The boxer had to pay for his coaching as do all other students. The boxer had to work for his money. The boxer was clearly comfortable being UNcomfortable.
And, let me tell you a little secret. You need to learn how to get comfortable being uncomfortable. If you wanna succeed in this world, let me cut through the hype and BS of everything happening fast and easy. Sorry, the things worth anything nowadays require some serious gut busting work. That's THE truth.
And that's your Monday Motivation.
