On my second day of training, Ron asked me to do off-the-knee push-ups and I thought, this guy must be crazy. I hadn’t done a push-up in years. I struggled and did two. I sat there, disappointed, but Ron was pumped up. He knew at that moment where we were starting and had a clear vision for my training going forward. Three months later when I did 65 off-the-toe push-ups I was truly amazed. Was Ron surprised? No, he wasn’t. That’s because the training routine we did week after week was building up my muscles – at the same time my mental roadblocks were getting knocked down with every session. Having him on the sideline, knowing I would succeed was so great, it really made the experience wonderful.
