ATHLETE: CGP Ep354 Refining Athleticism

Slow it down, speed it up, change direction, add complexity, add resistance, over speed, increase neural load and then do it again! If you want to refine athleticism you need to challenge yourself in as many ways as possible. Do it in the gym and see the results on the field of battle. I always […]

CGP Ep345 The Starting Point

Fat Face Rick, “He Ain’t Weak, Thats The Starting Point!” That line in the Wire changed the way I approached coaching from that day forward. It all made sense when my young student Cliff sat up and looked me right in the eye and said, “It’s this gym Coach! It’s changed my life! I have […]

CGP Ep343 Go To WORK!

The great philosopher Kool Moe D once said,”I go to work like a doctahhh!” In these times of uncertainty and change the one thing that has kept me sane is work.

CGP Ep341 Zoom Calls and Instagram Live? Enough Already!

I am done with Zoom calls and poorly made Instagram content. Its time for everyone to step it up and get your shit together! I know you aren’t going to take the time to watch a “How To Zoom” video made by someone who is more boring than reading the Zoom manual. So I created […]

CGP Ep414 Comedy of Errors Leads to Success

CGP Ep 413 Getting Cut from Peleton

Getting cut can be the best thing that ever happens to you. Making the team may feel good but in the long run it teaches you nothing. If you have never been cut you have never pushed your potential. The lessons I have learnt from losing have made me the winner I am today. And […]

CGP Ep412 Im Back Baby #TourLife

18 months of coaching my athletes over Zoom came to an end last week and I finally got to see my players again in person! Man ohhh man I needed it. The US/Canada border finally opened (if you were willing to jump a few obstacles) and I flew down to help my athletes prepare for […]
