Random Friday Thoughts: 10/2/09

Written on October 2, 2009 at 7:28 am, by Eric Cressey

1. You may recall that last Friday, I mentioned that my staff and I had Chris Frankel from TRX come in to do a mini-seminar at Cressey Performance.  This week, I’m just here to tell you that it was fantastic!  We picked up some excellent new exercises and techniques that’ll definitely help out our athletes.  If you haven’t picked up a TRX already, I’d highly recommend you check them out: TRX Suspension Training.


2. As a follow-up to my interview with Alwyn Cosgrove on the business of personal training earlier this week, you absolutely HAVE to check out this blog post from Thomas Plummer, widely regarded as the authority on the business of fitness.  It’s not only spot-on, but also absolutely hilarious:

The Medical Community Doesn’t Get What We Do

(if you haven’t read any of Thomas Plummer’s stuff, I highly recommend The Business of Fitness)

3. I never realized that left-handed pants were such a life-changer.

4. The other day, I promised A’s pitching prospect Shawn Haviland that I could get him above the 60 hits per day mark with a single link to his blog.  So, check him out; there is actually some excellent stuff in there if you’re a baseball fan: Ivy League to MLB.

5. Enjoy the weekend; this kid’s got a feeling it’s going to be a good one.
