12/20/17 - DEUCE Employees to Receive Full Medical

Full time DEUCE Gym employees will now receive one hundred percent coverage of the highest caliber medical benefits possible, thus completing a long time goal for the organization. The lengthy process didn’t disappoint in the fantastic levels of time, money, and bureaucratic gateways to make it a reality. Nonetheless, we’ve done it.

These benefits include Blue Shield of California’s Platinum PPO coverage with zero deductible and the freedom to choose any provider regardless of network. As one who is gleefully ignorant to the intricacies of the minutia of these bureaucratic wastelands, I’d like to translate the aforementioned this way:

We got the best goddamn insurance on the market. 

We are working diligently to ensure that the best team in the world is treated like it and this is a step in that direction.

Hold the standard.

What has happened to our discernment? It's our ability to be discerning that nurtures the evolution of our friend circles, communities, and ultimately our world. When you're discerning you say, "No." Discernment is principled and honest. We all have opinions but, surely, if these opinions are quite we cannot be discerning.T ...

The outlier that proves the rule wron ...

Thank goodness for the judge and jury here. We're governed by performance. How lucky are we to have such an objective measurement for progress? You see, when the criteria for evaluating an effort is flimsy things can get off kilter. Processes and methods can stay in place that are dysfunctional. Incentive to evolve can mel ...

There’s a sweet spot in every training day for every athlete. The closer you can walk the line of your own relative intensity, the more you can extract in ...
