Ok so week after week we all religiously read T-mag and try to apply anything that look neat to us. Some times it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
We all probably have our favorite authors and programs. But I wonder how many of us have gone the next step and tried to either contact(email, phone, smoke signal) the t-mag crew? Or how about attending a seminar? Or…gasp…getting some personalized training attention from them?
No matter how much they do seem like rockstars, they are people too. So drop them an email or go and work out with them.
I am writing this because while I was in LA this weekend I had the chance to go and workout with T-mag’s own Mike Mahler. I have attended one of his K-bell seminars in the fall and had a palm bleeding good time. I have kept in touch with Mike since then and when I told him I was going to be in his area, he was cool enough not only to let me workout with him but also to come pick me up and let me play with his dog.
We did some sort of K-bell EDT blur(If I am not wrong I believe that an article is forth coming) that had me out of breath and sweating.
While working out on a cliff over looking the Santa Monica pier we were able to get a great workout in, shoot the shit and even attract a crowd of LA onlookers.
So, the moral of the story is to take that next step. It might take you some time, or even some money but it will be well worth it in the end. Eventhough T-mag is the coolest site possible, with the coolest staff and writers out there…words and pics can only take you so far.
Go get some individualized attention. We all deserve it and need it.
fighting the good fight,
