The Weekly Dose of Awesome

This week I want to talk about having attention for detail. Our awesome is a man of precision.  He appreciates the difference between good and great is in the minutia of movement. He spends his time asking questions and working movements to work his strength and efficiency to the max. His efforts have shown up particularly in his oly work, since he diligently spends Tuesday mornings in oly class honing his skills. Icing on the cake? This man is humble and smiles all class long. Simply put, I appreciate Jeremy M. speaking both as a coach and community member... the man is 100% awesome!
