Another night in sanctuary

There's been a lot going on the past week, and several things I'm pretty excited about. Things are looking really good business wise, and I feel like my clients are doing well. I can do 6 hours straight of training and it feels like I've just been having a ball.
People that I look up to or consider to be peers are also doing great and that makes me happy because I know they really put out and are trying to do the best they can. Will Williams has relocated to California and it looks like he's doing great. Every time I read his blog it's like driving by my childhood home, because he speaks in Marine Corps Infantry-ese. If you haven't read his blog yet it's in the links to the right of this blog you're reading. If you live in SoCal you should run, not walk, to train with this cat. Before too long you won't be able to get a slot anymore.
The thing about personal training is that it's real easy to be worthless and still make a bunch of cash. I'll tell you straight up, I could do totally worthless training, charge $100 an hour, and be booked solid through 2023. I could sell ketchup ice cream pops to an Eskimo in white gloves. I am an incredible salesmen. However, I have morals. Plus, it just makes me feel good to know I'm helping people do something they might not be able to do on their own.
I think it is very true, that if you wouldn't do this for free (training), you're in the wrong business.
Below is some video I just put together of a few core exercises I do.

BTW, I've started up a training log at Battles I have fought


  1. great video Jordan, so cool to see Girya on the tube!What camera do you use? I'm in the market for a real camcorder.

  2. Thanks Rif. Actually right now I just use my macbook. There's a video recorder built into the screen, so I just open it up and take off. I'm looking for one as well and have been considering one of the models that work off their own hard drive as opposed to recording on a tape or DVD.

  3. Brother, are you teaching/assisting in San Jose this weekend?


  4. I will be there for a bit, but just kind of hanging around. If you're going to be there I'll probably run into you. I think I'm going to be there sunday.
