    Sweet RunnerB, didn’t realize you were in. Looking fwd to attending the Capoot Challenge and cheering folks on, we’ll be there. Might want to consider closing shop on Saturday, Coach….you have my vote.

    Great job Brian and Heather on your performance in the rain for crying out loud!!
    The article on sustaining motivation through 3 key elements: autonomy, value and competence is a great and refreshing way to start the day, it makes me want to “bring it to the red zone” at the box. Thank you Elijah for posting positive articles, sure beats waking up to things like CNN (Constant Negative News), but I wouldn’t know that anyway because I haven’t had cable TV for several years now.

    Great job Heather and Brian, way to fight through that miserable weather. I agree with Steve that I enjoy reading the articles every morning so much more than watching the depressing news.

    Today’s was fun. I believe I hit 3 pr’s since I didn’t have anything written down. 155# strict, 200# push press, 215# jerk. Shoulders are done. Noon is starting to become the happening time and place!

    The best book I read on motivation is “Drive” by Daniel Pink.

    gotta love daniel pink! you can get the gist of his book from this TED talk:

    another great TED talk along these same lines suggests that natural talent doesn’t always equal achievement, bu that the key to success is grit:

    the topic of motivation is of special interest to me as a homeschooling mom. i’m always looking for ways to promote independence and self direction with my kids, and i can definitely see the benefit of applying these principles to my own pursuits.

    i love how people at the gym study various topics, from weight lifting to retirement packages for government employees, and share their findings at the gym. we’re all getting smarter and stronger!

    Heather and Brian great times in the Monsoon! 🙂

    FireSteve and IntenseSteve you both killed it today… The real question is wether any of us will be able to lift our arms above our heads tomorrow?!

    AFC has become such a huge part of my life. The social aspect has become just as equally as important as the workout. See you all tomorrow. Come check out the noon class if you haven’t already, we have a BLAST.
