Pay It Forward

Posted in Uncategorized on July 6, 2010 by mboyle1959

I just got an email from a former intern thanking me for a favor I did.  The favor is not important but, the concept is. He mentioned that he hoped to be able to pay me back. I asked him to pay it forward. I know I have mentioned Pay it Forward in the past but, it is a policy I believe in. I always hope that the young coaches I help will continue the process and help other young coaches. In this way we can have an exponential growth in the number of quality coaches who realize that it is not what you get, but what you give to others.

Today I received a check for $2000 from one of my former athletes who has done well in the finance business. This brings our total this year to about $10,000. This is paying it forward.  I am so proud of my former athletes who give this way. I have clients who do the same. These guys pay forward by providing an opportunity to a young athlete that might not otherwise be available. Keep reminding yourself to pay it forward every day. One of the greatest feelings in the world is the act of anonymous giving.

The Past Week on

It’s Thursday again. I keep saying that hopefully I can consistently get these emails out on Monday but with summer training and weekends with the family these might be false promises.  We are week 2 at the new MBSC. You can go to and see the video tour of the new facility if you want to.

First up last week was: Questions About Brawn. This was an article I wrote in response to one of Brad Kazmarski’s forum questions. This might get you thinking

Next up, check:  Free Webinar “Functional Strength for Triathletes”

Also, Check out: More on The Importance of Strength and Conditioning Coach. This is a great article that Coach Dos sent me. Please take a second, click the link and read the article.

If you haven’t been on the site this week, make sure you log on and check out another excellent week of articles.

Video of the Week

Video of the week is the TRX Leg Curl. This is another TRX exercise that I think I “disrespected” a bit the first time I saw it. Make sure you try the exercise, don’t just watch the video.
