John Madsen Performance
This is the first official post for the new John Madsen Performance Blog. It is a little late being that I changed the name and logo a couple months ago, but I was waiting to write it until the new website was up and running (www.teamjmp.com). As many of you know, I was previously known as FLEX Athletic Performance. The name and old facility is no longer in use and the new and improved Team JMP is here to stay!
Like many other things in life things don’t always turn out the way you envision them. When I created FLEX Athletic Performance I thought there was no way in the world I could fail. I cared about the people I trained, they were getting great results, I was doing what I was passionate about, and I was doing it for the right reasons. It was a recipe for success according to me. Plus, I somehow convinced myself that I was simply immune to failure.
I was dead wrong. Looking back there are a million things that I would have done differently. By the time I had realized what was happening it was too late and the doors had to shut. Failure is a painful feeling but in my case I view it as a temporary set back. I’ve learned that the earth does not stop for any of us feeling sorry for ourselves. The sun goes down. The sun comes up. Repeat. You have a choice: Be defeated or get your ass up and do something to change your circumstances.
Enter Team JMP.
John Madsen Performance is my next attempt at doing something great. It is all of the lessons I learned from failing the first time. It’s me not letting a temporary setback defeat me for good. I am extremely proud of this because there was a time in which I had no Idea what I should do next. So I did the only thing I could. Kept moving forward.
I just want to thank all of the people who support me and trust me training their young athletes. John Madsen Performance is not just about training athletes. There are alot of trainers out there that can put an athlete through a workout. Team JMP is about athletes believing in their dreams. Its about athletes working their asses off to reach their goals. Its about athletes not letting anybody tell them they can’t do something. Thank you again for your support. We have some big time ballers working hard and I’m excited to see it pay off for all of them.
