The Cave is definitely NOT for everyone!

I only work with “the dedicated, coachable few”.

  • be humble
  • listen well
  • work hard
  • be consistent

People who miss training for 2 weeks or more without notifying the coach are out for good, except for emergencies, military deployments, etc.

If any of the following apply to you, then the Cave is not for you–

  • you are a wuss
  • you are easily offended
  • you are lazy
  • you are arrogant
  • you are an excuse-maker
  • you are a whiner
  • you are a drama queen
  • you think you are entitled to something
  • you think you should get a better price

It’s just that simple! It’s not rocket science.
