>2nd Annual Spring Sport Conditioning Program

>

I wanted to let you know of the upcoming spring clinic that I will be running beginning on April 11th.

Game Fit Performance Training, LLC will be holding the 2nd Annual 2010 Spring Sport Conditioning Clinic. This Clinic is designed for any athlete, between the ages of 13 to 16, looking to improve their flexibility, speed, quickness, and conditioning in preparation for their upcoming spring season. At the conclusion of this 4 week clinic all participants will have a better understanding of how to effectively condition for their sport.

For more information please check out my website and to download your registration form.

I hope to see you on the 11th.

Until then…Train HARD!

>Last night I was reading an article in the recent issue of Parenting magazine that was alarming and enlightening at the same time. Did you realize that 17% of kids between the ages of 2 to 19 are obese? Did you realize that 1/3 of that age group is overweight? One in three kids has a weight problem in this country!!
Wait it gets worse…45% of YOUNG TEENS are diagnosed with ADULT ONSET diabetes.

YOUNG TEENS?…ADULT ONSET?…That’s not right!

A study cited in this article from the journal Young Children found that kids get only 10 to 15 minutes of outdoor playtime each day. Also, if a kid isn’t getting enough exercise by the age of 3, then the chances of them becoming fat or obese is increased.

The rate of childhood obesity has more than tripled over the past decade. Now it is time to focus on the issue and get active. Turn off the tv…turn off the video games and get moving. It can save you and your kids.

Originally planned to begin on this coming Sunday, March 28th, the clinic will now kick off on Sunday, April 11th.

>Who moved my cheese?

>It is a book that I have read before and yesterday I re-read it.  It is one of those books that I feel you can re-read many times to help put things in perspective.  Who Moved My Cheese?: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life is one of those books with a simple story that can help you embrace change with a positive outlook.
Whether you are Sniff, Scurry, Hem, or Haw, this story is about being able to adjust to change.  As the author, Spencer Johnson, writes, change is going to happen to all of us.  We all have to be able to do that at some point in our lives.  Be it at work…at home…on our team…change is something that happens.  How you deal with that change is what will determine how successful you can be.
If you have an hour to spend, sit down and read this book.  It will be well worth it.

>Loosen up those hips in your warm-up

BD and I got together for another video session.  This episode features the hurdle warm-up that I have my athletes perform prior to their workout. 

>Believe in what you do

>

Take a minute to check out this You Tube clip.  It is a compilation of Will Smith interviews.  It helps shed some light on why he is successful at what he does.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

And as he says, “Being realistic is the path to mediocrity.”  You have to stay focused on what you do in order to achieve success.

Train HARD!
