one-point-twenty-one-gigga watts!

One of our favorites is back.  Mark Watts joins us for the second time to talk about a myriad of coaching topics like the misconceptions that revolve around our traditional definition of “experience”.  Mark is amazing because he draws from his many years of being around so many levels of athletes and finds value in each stage of his career.  We also talk about how to get athletes to buy in to the training, programming, or coaching and why a transactional coach is ineffective compared to a transformational coach.  He discusses why strength and conditioning is such fantastic field to be a part of because ultimate subjectivity.  This is why he has been known to regularly rank his athletes.

Mark is an all around great guy, endless source of knowledge, and a resource that we will continue to take advantage of for as long as he’ll allow.  A big thank you to him for indulging us time and time again.

With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.

    I was curious if anyone else was having the issue of not being able to download it…

  5. CALI on January 20, 2015 at 12:01 pm

    Guys- I’m looking into these issues. The internet is being a huge B – cranky without any hint of what is actually wrong.

    I’ll keep you posted.

    Have you tried telling it how fine it looks on those jeans?

  7. Adam Campbell on January 21, 2015 at 10:36 am

    Or just being there? Sometimes you don’t even need to say anything. Just listen.

    @ingob & @seymourbutts – both really great suggestions. Last night the internet asked me if it “had no arms and legs would I still love it”.

    It’s more serious than we all thought.
