I first met Bud Jeffries as a result of getting his  first book, that I knew of, back in 2004.

I recommend all of his books!

As I studied I was very impressed with his both his strength and his spiritual outlook, so I called him and talked for a good while. Needless to say, he has been a huge influence on my training and coaching ever since.

He has been to my gym several times, he did a Strongman Seminar with Scott Weech, Jr., then he came back for Jeff Martone’s  Kettlebell seminar, and once again for John Brookfield’s Battling Ropes seminar.

I trained with him twice at his Super Human Workshops in Tallahassee, Florida. Most of the time, his son Noah was there too.

He was incredibly strong even from a very young age.

In fact, Noah did a seminar at the Cave himself back in 2014.

Noah left this life as a very accomplished young man. Bud and Heather Jeffries set up a foundation to honor him called Noah’s Army

The upcoming Strongman Workshop Bud will do at my gym will be a fundraiser for this foundation. The date will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.

On November 4-5, in Miami, and unprecedented training event will take place.

Dual certifications in steel clubs and maces!

Coaches & athletes who “get it” about where fitness is headed next are flocking to these certifications. From Sydney, Australia to Rome, Italy people are learning from the best.

Now we have the best coming to Miami next month!

Are you one of the coaches & athletes who “get it”, and take action,  or are you a bystander and satisfied with the status quo?

Once you stop learning, you are done.

When you think you have arrived, you are fooling yourself.

Any time you think you can’t be knocked out of first place, you are doomed.

You get the point, I hope.

One thing I find to be very prevalent in the fitness world is a refusal to venture beyond what is commonly done in  most gyms.

While I definitely believe in the importance of basic exercises with barbells, dumbbells, etc.

There is a small percentage of coaches/trainers who will seek out and experiment “hands on” with things most people aren’t even aware of. These are the ones that are not handcuffed by what others think is cool or effective. They go find out for themselves.

This young man came all the way from Lighthouse Point (near Fort Lauderdale) to learn today, while people 10 minutes from our gym did not.

Why?

Because he is hungry to learn!

People with very demanding schedules, like this Firefighter and others, made the time to come and learn.

If you have shackled yourself with the immunity to learn, remember you hold the key to unlock them.

Don’t limit your self to the status quo, the familiar, or the comfort zone!

 

 

Anyone who missed Ed Coan’s Powerlifting seminar on June 4 right here

“in our own backyard” will probably regret it for a long time.

The heat index was 112 degrees today in southwest Florida, and nobody cared if there was no air conditioning. We were there to learn from the incredible Ed Coan. Most of the people who came were extremely strong already, but they knew the value of expert coaching, they knew they could get even stronger.

I was very humbled to learning alongside some very accomplished Powerlifters, like Billy “The Tank” Tutko,  at this event.

The cool thing was, no one came across as rude or arrogant today. I was the oldest one there and one the smallest. Everyone was supportive and encouraging.

I learned a lot there and added over ten pounds to my deadlift PR. It was a very productive day!

PRs were being broken all over then place as Coach Coan worked one-on-one with each person there. His vast experience and knowledge let him pinpoint problem areas rapidly and teach how to fix each one.

Coach Coan really focused on the mental side of lifting as well as getting your whole body as strong as possible.

This very cool training event was held in a place that many would think was very unusual for Powerlifting, a CrossFit gym. However, this is no ordinary Crossfit gym.

CrossFit Havoc is run by Jim Denofa, and his lovely wife, Natasha.  Jim was a Powerlifter before he started CrossFit and he is good at both.

The take-home points are

  • never stop learning
  • never put limits on what you can do
  • train with Ed Coan if you ever get the chance
