Style vs Substance


I am at University of North Carolina doing some beta testing on the TrainTrak system with Men’s soccer, working with Greg Gatz, the Head of Olympic Sports Strength and Conditioning here. I have known Greg for over ten years and worked with him on several projects over the years. It is so cool to see a professional like this work. I could not help but think about all the internet gurus and self promoters who can’t hold a candle to Greg while we were monitoring the training session yesterday. Looking at the championship banners hanging in the weight room I could not help but notice all the national championship teams he has worked during his tenure at UNC, very impressive. But possibly more impressive to me is that despite all this success he is always trying to improve and get better. He is not into self promotion and hype he is true professional who understands and relishes his role as a key member of the support team. I am looking forward to the next two days with Greg.
