Ben Bergeron quote.jpg

The third day of wise words from great coaches comes from Ben Bergeron. 

“You don’t have to go to the gym. You don’t have to pick up the kids. You don’t have to go to work. You get to.”

He is somewhat of a fitness philosopher who talks a lot about the mental side of training. The athletes that are coached by him are some of the most mentally tough around. He seems to reframe what might be seen as negatives into strengths. Ben is always great for a little perspective and this one is a great reminder that not everyone has the luxury of a gorgeous gym on the waterfront, supportive coaches and a fun atmosphere.
