It's back to school time around the DMV. For bus riders, here are some safety tips from the NHTSA:
At the bus stop: Stay at least 6 feet away from the curb. Do not run around while waiting.
Getting on and off the bus: Wait for the bus to stop completely and for the door to open. Only get on or off the bus once the driver says it is OK. Once seated, always face forward. Use seat belts when they are available, says the NSC.
Near the bus: Do not cross behind a school bus. If you need to cross in front of the bus, make sure you are at least 10 feet in front of the bus before crossing. Tell the driver if you drop something near the bus. Do not lean down to pick it up, as the bus driver may not be able to see you.
Where are you mentally when you train? Are you able to use life as fuel? Able to focus on the task at hand? What are your intentions? Where is your attention?
Are you saying to yourself, "I am going to do 5 reps on this squat as crisp and as technical as I can?" Or "Man I am sore" - "I don't like this music" - "Work sucked today" - "I forgot to pay that bill..." When you are running, prowling or rucking are you wallowing in the despair that it's 95 degrees outside and you're not even half way done or are you running with intent? Do you focus every ounce of your physical and mental being on the task at hand making sure you are maximizing that day's session?
Do you fret about future training, future sessions, or a future outcome, be it a goal or competition?
Trust that the ends will be there. Trust the system. Your coach. Your program. Trust your training partners. Improve the now...tomorrow will be here soon enough.
As your training session continues do you mentally wander? Do you chat a little too much? Or do you treat excess chatter during your deadlift like someone interfering your Netflix binge? Do you check your phone one last time? Or during burpees do you treat your cell with the same disgust you do when you fervently support not texting and driving?
Do you zone out and catch yourself staring at the wall? Or do you zone in with a 100 yard stare, ready to attack the session, movement, activity, set or even rep at hand?
Stay in the moment. If you lose it, come back to the moment. The more you practice this the easier it will get. Before long a moment will come where you are able to harvest the fruits of your labor and it will feel like just another day because you practice like you play.
We believe that every detail matters. From the first phone call, to the first time you set foot into our space - everything plays a role in your experience. That includes our updated and friendly office spaces to help you feel right at home.

The Monday Morning Quarterback. This doesn't just exist in football. It exists everywhere. Training hard and grinding only to hear someone telling you that squats will hurt your knees while they are quarter repping a leg press. That keto has been proven to be an inferior weight loss strategy while they are destroying a Wendy's triple. Or telling you running that much will beat you up, from the comfort of their recumbent bike. Make no mistake, technique is paramount, but all to often people look upon hard work, and they equate it to danger. Squatting doesn't injure you, squatting the way you are squatting injures you. Athletics are slightly harder then playing Madden on expert level. Find a quality gym, good training partners, educated/certified/experienced trainers and coaches, find a passion. Train hard and train smart. All other criticism take with a grain of salt. Take solace in the fact you're willing to make a change, set and execute a goal and not settle for the status quo. Take comfort in your disapline and work ethic.

I ❤️ side-lying footwork on #reformer . Works both abductors (top leg) and adductors (bottom leg 🦵in one setting. Stack the hips properly so pelvis is neutral throughout then obliques and many other things work hard as well. I show only a few reps per move; but I like to do and teach 10 reps each, 3 sets of each, switch between parallel and lateral leg positions with bottom leg lift/lower then circle ⭕️. I especially like to put both top and bottom legs on 🔥 by adding the open and close both legs at the end of the series 😉
#OTD 1911, President William Howard Taft traveled to Manassas, Virginia, for a jubilee event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first Battle of Bull Run, the first major battle of the Civil War.
President Taft’s speech focused on the importance of reconciliation and his hopes for lasting peace. “Who is in a better position to appreciate the value of peace than those who have been through the inferno of war?” he asked the cheering veterans.
The Bull Run event was the first major reunion for the 50th anniversary of the Civil War and was followed two years later by a much larger reunion at Gettysburg. It also sparked the public’s interest in preserving the land where the battle had been fought, which at that time was still privately owned.
