Training…

“We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training.” Archilochus, Greek soilder, 650 B.C.

“Under pressure, you don’t rise to the occasion, you sink to the level of your training.” Unknown Navy SEAL

“It comes down to what you value. If you value winning and gold medals then the thing you’re going to most fear is losing. I’m strict in the way I think about sport. I do it because I can love it. I can be the best at it. If I were not to win another one of these because people are better than me, then people are better than me.”  Kyle Snyder 2016 Olympic Gold medalist.

We have the privilege, at BTL, to train elite performers, like Kyle. Kyle and his roommate, Nate, outwork their teammates at OSU. These two never stop training. OSU wrestling, just like your team, only has a few willing to keep working after they win. Fact. Most humans stop working once they’ve won a little gold. These two never stop. We begin season three with this team tomorrow. Grappy and I don’t plan to ever stop. Why would we? We will never arrive regardless how many champions his coaching produces. We will keep training. Good.

We practice with kman, Durp, Joeylamb, dub, slo, Timmyd, Tommyc, young Kenny, and a few other teams, toward our purpose of becoming ONE, distinct and deeply connected. We will practice toward this aim from the moment you hire us. We have discovered that training individuals, teams, and leaders toward the aim of becoming one is the heart of high performance. We will train you, first. We will train you and your team next. We will train you and your next generation of leaders too. We will never stop training you until you fire us. Our aim is to train. Under pressure you will be transformed. Your performance will level up. Your performance gains will force BTL training gains. Your performance in your work/life will reflect your training gains. Together we improve. And, the gains will NOT be linear and will come in fits and starts. We will fall in love with the idea of training.

The virtuous cycle will continue till we slide sideways into the grave. Good. BTL Builders, revised 2016.
