    Your Workout Is Missing These Two Elements

    Your Workout Is Missing These Two Elements

    Since creating the Instagram blog @respectthetempo, where I document my current workout routine (Tempo Training), my thoughts on fitness and programming, and other fuckery I see in the gym world - I've had a lot of time to think about what we are missing in traditional functional fitness workouts.

    These are two of the elements you're probably missing.

    Stop Being A Cheap F**k

    Stop Being A Cheap F**k

    When I encounter microgym owners who are constantly concerned with saving money on every professional service, product, etc - I know they are in immediate trouble.

    You opened a business.  

    Businesses need money.

    And you're trying to grow your business, which needs cash to grow, without spending any cash.

    This is backwards-as-f**k.

    Open Letter To Competitive Coaches

    Open Letter To Competitive Coaches

    One of the largest vulnerabilities of a CrossFit affiliate exists when a competitive/sports culture becomes toxic within the staff and/or membership.  

    The owners are left trying to encourage their members to pursue a better version of themselves, but a few of their coaching staff or members have decided to turn this commercial, group fitness business into their own athlete compound for their pursuit of sports greatness.  

    This podcast is to the coaches who are not helping the owners by pushing this competitive culture within the business.
