Someone asked me the other day while I was looking out into nothingness before a workout what I was thinking about as I coach. It got me thinking about the things that go through my mind on a daily basis as a business owner and Head Coach here at Radix. So I’m going to give you a day of thoughts at Radix performance. I hope you enjoy!

5:10am “should I gel my hair today?””people wouldn’t recognize me, where’s my hat?”
5:15am “Coach Dan’s morning shake is the best”
5:25am ” your going to hear my ROOOOOAR’ – me singing Katy Perry to myself on the drive in.
