Over a year has passed since my initial contact with athletes from Dominican High School, a private Catholic school on the north side of Milwaukee, WI. It's been a great experience working with the high school athletes from several sports and I'm excited to be kicking off the start of the school year as their Head Strength and Conditioning Coordinator. Since starting my personal training career (back in 2005 as the 11th CrossFit affiliate), I learned very quickly from my mentors at the time the motivational power of the blog. It recognizes results, gets people talking and helps to generate excitement over the hard work being done and the achievements being made. Since there are certain issues in displaying pictures of scholarship bound athletes on the website of a private business, I took the route of creating a Facebook fan page dedicated solely to the students at the high school. This way I could provide good informational links, share some motivational material, post their pictures of their workouts, etc. without any conflict of interest. The fan page went live in August of 2011.
It only took a little over one month before it happened. One of my pet peeves. A person became a fan of the page and immediately made a post in regards to a service that he wanted to promote to the parents, coaches
