High School Strength Certification will be released tomorrow.
And today, I wanted to hit you with a few key points for your consideration…
Barrington High School
3 of the numerous high schools I either worked at or consulted for from 2001 – 2009.
Without question the most fulfilling time of my career.
In those 8 years and with those 6,000+ high school athletes, I experienced more in the way of learning than at any other point in my 15 years inside this industry.
I learned that the situation (for multiple reasons) was never going to be ideal and that a practical system was necessary to optimally train these teenagers.

High School Athletes on Steroids?
? Should all high school athletes be subject to mandatory drug tests
Because they are ‘role models’ for the student body at large and should therefore be held to higher standards with respect to drugs and alcohol…
Because steroid use is potentially dangerous and something that must be lessened in all sports, including the high school level…
Because creatine use is considered ‘unethical’ in amateur sports by many people and users need to be ‘uncovered’…
Your thoughts are critical to me… Please leave them below:

“Integrity is what we do, what we say, and what we say we do.” -Don Galer
It is a difficult time for anyone, particularly entrepreneurial newcomers, to be in business given the corporate climate in our nation and our world. With one time “blue chip,” can’t miss stocks selling for pennies on the dollar, 401k’s evaporating before our very eyes, and staggering job losses the world over, it is tempting to consider means by which to trim excesses and help the bottom line.
