M.E.B.B. CONDITIONING SUCCESS


Discussing the original Max Effort Black Box template from the SECRETS OF THE M.E.B.B. DVD. The tracking system is essential to a successful program. People will respect what you inspect!

Coach Rut,

I am an 8man football coach here in Sharon Springs Ks in the northwest corner of the state. My fellow coach and workout partner from Weskan, Marc just told me that you will possibly be speaking at our Coaches Clinic. Can\'t tell you how excited I am that you will be sharing your expertise. I have been crossfitting for about 5 years and recently following your MEBB protocol. I have also implemented this program with my athletes in the strength training classes I teach and am seeing tremendous results. Thank you for your willingness to speak at our clinic. Looking forward to meeting you.

Coach Ayers
p.s. I used to coach at Jetmore which is not far from your old stomping grounds.

.....those stomping grounds would be L.A. or Larned America
