If you read this blog you know I’m a big Joseph Mercola fan. Call him an alarmist if you want but, I happen to agree a lot more than I disagree. Please take a minute and read this.

Quoting Ashton Kutcher?

Posted in Guest Authors, Random Thoughts, Training Females, Youth Training on August 27, 2013 by mboyle1959

It’s not very often I get the urge to quote someone like Ashton Kutcher but I’ll make an exception:

“the sexiest thing in the world is being really smart. And being thoughtful and really generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell you to make you feel like less, so don’t buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, be generous.”

Greg Rose on Long Term Athletic Development

Posted in Guest Authors, MBSC News, Media, Seminars, Strength Coach Podcast, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Training Females, Uncategorized, Youth Training with tags , , on August 6, 2013 by mboyle1959

This is a great presentation by my friend Greg Rose on Long Term Athletic Development. The presentation is based on golf but this could be baseball, hockey or any other sport. Listen to this and you will realize that most “experts” are wrong  and aren’t really experts at all, just entrepreneurs who want your money.

Must Read for All Hockey Parents

Posted in Guest Authors, Hockey, Random Thoughts, Training, Uncategorized, Youth Training with tags , , on June 29, 2013 by mboyle1959

This article is a must read for all hockey parents. It’s scary that parents may try to undermine USA Hockey’s initiative by going to AAU. The biggest obstacle we have to over come in youth sports are parents who think they know something.

Starting Your Own Sports Performance Company?

Posted in Guest Authors, Random Thoughts, StrengthCoach.com Updates, Training, Uncategorized with tags on June 28, 2013 by mboyle1959

I receive this question a few times per year:

Q- I want to know where I need to start if I want to start my own fitness and sports performance company. What type of things do I need to do?

My answers came in the form of a series of questions

1- Would you consider yourself the best trainer/ coach where you work?

2- Do you have a full weeks schedule of paying clients with a waiting list?

3- Do you need to consider hiring or training someone else to help with your overload

4- Do you regularly save 10-20% of your gross earnings every week in an interest bearing account

5- Do you have three months of living expense in this account?

 

Bottom line, if the answer to any of these is no, you might not be ready to be in business for yourself.

Here’s a great read from Alwyn Cosgrove and Jason Ferrugia called The Business
