In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

What’s up Power Athlete, Mike here. Again. I’m calling in reference to the Methodology Block One course. My wife has given me the okay to sign up after many years. I’m facing knee surgery here shortly. So I figured this would be a perfect way to spend my time recovering and I had a question for y’all.

She’s not unaware of the Block One test. What would be the speech that I could give my wife to convince her to let me come from Fort Lauderdale, Florida all the way to the Power Athlete Ranch? Cuz, I don’t know if she’s going to go for it. Anyways, appreciate you guys. I hope that you guys are having a good new year, and I’ll talk to you later. Bye.

Are You Not Entertained?!

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…” – T. Roosevelt

Is there an absence of courage in the modern day or lack of opportunity to challenge oneself to become a better version of themselves?

John and Tex discuss the importance of identifying personal limitations, aiming for improvement, and finding activities that pull out your very best. These self-imposed mountains to climb exist in the form of knowledge, physicality, and character. Fortunately for all of our listeners out there, these three feats make up the path to becoming a Power Athlete Block One Coach.
