Unspectacular, understated, undeniably cool.
I have come here to train with a mentor of mine for the past 7 years, and tomorrow I get to meet him for the first time…
I owe Kelly Starrett a lot.
When I first started following his educational material, I was utterly bewildered.
He was speaking English, but yet talking this whole other language.
Here I was, a CrossFit coach, and there he was, a CrossFit coach. Yet, we were not the same thing at all.
He understood movement and communicated on a level I had never encountered.
Honestly, I couldn’t help but hate the dude. Genuinely, my comparative lack of knowledge drove me crazy.
So…I went down the rabbit hole.
I immersed myself in positional archetypes, joint rotation, torque, capsule distraction…..
Eating up knowledge wherever I could find it, deepening my understanding.
I had witnessed a master, a coaching archetype to aim for.
Ever since then, Kelly’s framework for analysing and improving movement has helped me further my career, build a business.
As I said, I owe him a lot. In a many ways, the guy educated me for free.
And tomorrow, I get to chat with the 2017 version.
Needless to say, I pretty excited.
