Energy in the gym.  Where does it come from?  This is something I spend a great deal of time thinking about.  I like high energy and to have fun.  Rose Mini once told me I am like a puppy when people walk into the gym.  All excited.  Positive energy is something everyone enjoys.  Let me start this post with this.  Every individual person at NSCF is responsible for the energy they bring to the building.  When you walk in to NSCF do whatever you need to bring positive energy.  Negative energy is forbidden!  NSCF is whatever you make out of it.  It is not just the coaches responsibility. Every coach has a different personality.  Some are loud, funny, quiet, etc.  Each coach is not responsible for trying to copy the energy of another coach or class.  The energy of any class is the sum of the collective.  Everyone together, not an individual.  When I teach it is a great break from work and I think everyone just hangs on and goes along for the ride with me.  A game, high fives, bad dancing, cho cho train noises and a little coaching.  That is the environment I like to be in so I create it.  When you come in create the environment you want, have fun, high five and cheer.  Don’t get caught in the corner talking about how quiet a certain class is.  That will just tell me who is responsible for the low energy.  It is quiet because the collective group has low energy.  If you find yourself in that situation snap out of it quickly and let out a high energy howl.  Every time into NSCF bring your A game.  Bring some great music, interact with your fellow athletes, cheer each other on, train hard and smile.    There are 24 hours in day, make your NSCF hour head and shoulders above the rest.  Coach Dave

This weeks schedule additions and subtractions

Tuesday – closed early for New Years!

Wednesday – 12 noon class only

Friday night 6:30pm Competition development!  Friday nights are back permanently.  We will have 3 weeks of mini comps and high skill development and one week either inviting another gym to us or visiting another gym for a friendly throw down!  We have a few coaches on board and committed.  The cost for the Competition development is $10 per class at the door.   This is a great way to get more advanced coaching outside of your private training.   There will be no cost for the monthly throw downs but we will appreciate any help making visiting gyms feel welcome.

  1. 1st of all, that picture is CLASSIC, George! 😉

    BACK! Woohoo! Checked out a few boxes back in WNY last week and did a bit o’ skiing in northern NH this past weekend. 🙂

    Where was everyone at the 6AM today?

    Went a bit lighter than usual on the KBs today. Everyone made it through their 2 mins of KB Jerks-woot!
    Got 2-3 more rounds on “The Chief” RX from the last time we did it. Yippee!

    Look forward to some rowing WODs this week!

    Back at it tomorrow AM. 🙂
