Milo and the Calf

Posted: May 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 8.30.48 PMTo become the greatest wrestler in Greece, to win six Olympic laurels, Milo had to train like the rest of us.  His method?  Borrow a new born calf and carry it around Croton day after day, week after week, and month after month.  As the calf grew, so did Milo’s strength, until he was the strongest wrestler in Greece and could carry the now full grown bull upon his back.

What did he do once the bull was grown? He ate it.

That’s what we’re about here, carrying the weight, getting in the miles, doing the work, day in and day out, making small gains, occasionally dropping the calf, but always picking it back up.  It’s a simple enterprise – do the work, get better.  At sport, at life, at everything.


Begins 5/23/17


This program has been designed for the competitive High School athlete to specifically utilize the training methods and principles of RAW Training during our 75-minute training sessions.

Athletes will be expected to train in the manner it takes to perform at a high level. In sports, ALL Athletes will be asked to jump higher, run faster and be more EXPLOSIVE. To do so, athletes must become strong er, move throughout full range of motion and learn how to move correctly!

Hi Coach Amy! I Just wanted to share some good news – I ran the half marathon Sunday and finished in 1:58! My goal was under 2 hours! I dropped 12 minutes from last year. I’m super proud of my time and wanted to thank you!! I don’t run much, most of my training is at the gym 🙂
