Who’da Thunk?

February 5, 2014

That the Super Bowl would look the way it did and end with the Seattle Seahawks annihilating the Denver Broncos? It was one of the most fascinating games I have ever watched. I say fascinating because there was something unique and special about the Seahawks and the way they executed their game. It was flawless. They knew who they were, what they wanted, and how they were going to get it.  Every player on the team was focused, confident, relaxed, and playing at their best. They were all in sync individually and as a team. They were having fun competing and enjoyed every minute of the game.

He calls it a kinder, gentler approach to football. He has implemented what he calls the whole person approach for his players. He provides support on and off the field. He cares about how they are coping with their life, their relationships, their emotions, and their success. He has also implemented a mind body approach to his player preparation. Sure there is weight training and sprints, but there is also meditation and yoga. There are no more in your face swearing and put downs on the field, only more positive coaching corrections. His basic philosophy is happy players make better players! The best part…it’s working! And working big!

Remind you of any other Change your Approach, Change your Life type programs out there?

Yea, me too. It’s REAL with our Skinny no question. It’s the whole person, not just the calories. Can’t do the body without the mind or the mind without the body. Own your power. Find your good.
