Craig’s List

  • “Burned Out at Work? Here’s how to find your passion – or get it back” – Wall Street Journal, Elizabeth Bernstein. It happens to all of us – me included. For me, getting back to the basics and falling in love with the process (classfit!) reignited my passion. Elizabeth has a few more ideas.
  • The Cost of Getting Lean: Is it worth it? – Precision Nutrition, Dr. John Berardi- Coach Jennifer shared this in our Diablo Community Group and it’s a fantastic and real analysis of what it takes to be “ripped” and the importance of a balanced sensible approach to nutrition and fitness. Avoid the “obsessive quest to be ‘hot’ and ‘lean’.” Watch!
  • Tiger Wins the Masters! It’s been 14 years since his last Masters win and 11 years since his last Major win. He’s had devastating injuries, resulting in 4 back surgeries. And, at the peak of his career, his personal life weaknesses were publicly exposed and his family torn apart. Somehow, Tiger stayed the course, put the work in, and at 43 years old, returned to the top of the podium in the biggest championship of the sport of Golf – with his mother and children on site to witness. It was an epic and emotional moment in sports history.

Make it an awesome week!
