My good friends and fellow standard holders, Menotti’s Coffee Stop, have been open everyday since the day they opened more than three years ago. Not a single day of closure including Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, death days, and even construction days seems like an arduous streak to maintain. Surely, it’s more dif ...

With great pride, I can safely report that we’re in the midst of an era unlike any other. A movement, most commonly referred to as Quantified Self, is changing the way men and women understand themselves and get feedback about their lives. We know the old adage, “If you can measure it, you can improve it.” Now, more t ...

**After the noon class we close until Monday 11/28 – Happy Thanksgiving**My mom always made it a point to make us stop for a photo growing up. In fact, she still does to this day. While it was often met with frustration from my brother and I, she would always retort that “you’ll be grateful one day wh ...

During my writing practice (which I proudly do at Menotti's Coffee Stop) yesterday, a young woman sat next to me. She was studying for a test to earn an accreditation from a major governing body in fitness. Her moments reading this introductory text would, in some respect, mark the beginning of a hopeful career successfully ...

Having goals is a natural phenomenon. Some would argue that specifically setting aside time to make them and a plan to attack them is a critical key to success. I've got some goals myself. Accomplishing them is a finicky practice, though.Another practical joke on humanity, in fact, is that (like happiness) we can't achieve ...

Performance is only part skill and talent acquisition. Your attributes, per se, are only part of the equation, regardless of the sport. A wakeboarder, baseball player, CrossFit athlete, or a trail runner's performance is just partially decided by his or her, speed, strength, athleticism, or sport specific skill. The other c ...

I want you to think about the Super Bowl. Think about the journey of each of those players. Think about the first time as a kid, when they picked up a football. Think about them watching football on TV on Sundays eating popcorn. Think about when they started to play pee-wee football, then they played in high school on Frida ...

There's a distinct problem with being a victim. While such status doesn't come with many perks, identifying as a victim can actually feel good. I'd argue it's why we do it so often. Of course, we'd all like positive outcomes from the get go but as we (should) know by now, life doesn't work that way. When we don't get a pos ...

I get it, we just met. I can't assume to borrow your car, twenty bucks, or crash on your couch. I'm the new coach on the block, I have my own way of coaching things, a handful of bad jokes, and a complete lack of volume. This is gonna be a process; I spelt your name wrong, I forgot that overhead is a little tougher for yo ...
