We're Not Worried About Talent

temp-post-image

I’d like to take an official position on talent: we’re not particularly concerned with it here.
Sure, talent is fun, and we definitely don’t have a problem with it, but we’re not interested in worshipping it or using it as a yardstick. When someone walks through our doors for the first time, their talent is irrelevant; however, their will, their motivation, their grit, commitment, fervor, gusto -- whatever you want to call it -- is held in high esteem.

Talent tells us very little about a person. Whether you can squat 5lbs or 500lbs on day one doesn’t tell us a thing about your commitment to improvement, how you’ll face challenges, what you’ll do when you fail or when things get hard. Talent is a shiny bow, but we’re more concerned about what’s inside.

We praise and admire the motivated individual working on getting their first pull-up equally with the motivated individual working on getting 50 pull-ups in a row.

Our standards are high, but they’re simple.

Motivated? Come on in.
