No Short Cuts


Don’t believe the marketing hype, there are no shortcuts to improved performance. Gains that are easily attained are cannot sustained. There are no quick fixes when something is amiss. Crash programs don’t work, they crash. The bottom line is that you must do the appropriate work for your development and ability level as it relates to your sport, nothing more, and nothing less. The basic work must be done consistently with intention and directed effort. Training is about adaptation and adaptation takes time. Take the time, do what is right for you and reap the benefits over time.
