Mandatory Reading

After days of going back through old posts, we have finally created a page that could be used as a starting point for any newcomers, a reference to see where you stand, or a time capsule for the old kids feeling nostalgic. Updating the website as often as we do, it is easy for a great post, article, or video to get lost in the archives. While we are still working on a solution for this (and are close to having a really good one), here is a quick guide to posts that you need to get familiar with. We would call it "Recommended Reading," but to really appreciate what we have going at the Champions Club and to get the most out of our training, the folowing content is "Mandatory."

The following editorials were instrumental in shaping how we operate. These posts serve as guidelines in our training and the way we act inside the gym and out. They cover justifying the price, creating frames, our approach to training, and our goals. These also contain many quotes that are referenced daily.

This section features content provided by our kids. We caught slack for some of the posts, while others were recognized by the best in the world. Either way, we'll always stand behind these editorials as they prove to be staples in our community. Remember, you are reading the work of teenagers.
