Watters Performance training schedule for the week of 1/25

“Holding a grudge is like letting someone live in your head rent free”
MCB (soon to just be Watters Performance) notes
- starting on Monday, you may notice that all pages and correspondence will be titled Watters Performance and not Motor City Bootcamp. Don’t fret. Through a natural progression of things, I’d rather the name reflect what we’re doing now more so than how what we were doing when we started out, way back in 1995 as one of the first “bootcamp” programs in the Midwest. Though we stay true to our roots with various outdoor sessions, we’ve evolved to focus more on performance result oriented training. And I wanted the name to reflect that. I’m also sick of getting lumped into so many other “bootcamp” program hacks that seem to be everywhere. Just saying…  We’ll have some sweet new gear popping up soon too. I’ll keep you posted.
- This week’s schedule is posted at jeffwatters.com. Note Tuesday am’s location update

Watters Performance training schedule / Frozen Watters session

“If you’re not where you want to be in life, it has nothing to do with the world. It has everything to do with the fact that you’ve not made the sacrifices or put in the work required to get there”
Frozen Watters notes

You don’t need a piece of paper to write shit on so that you can remind yourself to do the things in 2015 that you neglected to do in 2014 even though you wrote THOSE down on a piece of paper too. Do the things every day that make you a better version of yourself. Not for anyone else, fuck everyone else. Do it for you. If you make yourself better for you, you’ll be better for them too. Make 2015 your bitch.
