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

* Beginner to intermediate mountain biking
* Scenic paddling but not too long (rental including with 5 hour race)

* Tech shirt and Silver Lake Pizza Factory pizza
