I sat in my car, still in the parking lot of Impact Basketball. I sat in silence, reflecting.
I had just finished my final Impact Basketball workout on Saturday morning.
I thought about where I was just eleven months ago. How I didn’t exercise. How I had basically given up the game of hoops. How I too often found myself searching for something more.
I couldn’t help but smile thinking about how far I’ve come. How I’ve run over 500 miles this year. How I’m in the best shape of my life. How I began this journey on me vs. MJ. How I just completed a week of the most intense and revitalizing basketball training of my life at Impact Basketball.
Life can be so unbelievably amazing if you allow it to be.
My time at Impact was truly one of the best weeks of my life.
Every day, every session, was a new adventure that I couldn’t wait to tackle.
Even following Friday evening’s workout, where I stood on the court wondering if my last meal would soon be all over the hardwood floor (will have video soon), I couldn’t wait to come back Saturday morning.
I absolutely LOVED every single moment of the experience.
A VERY BIG Thank You!
I can’t thank Matt Hiller of Impact Basketball enough for believing in my mevsMJ dream of playing Michael Jordan and for making all of this happen. On top of the World class training he provided me, he is one of the kindest people I’ve ever known. He didn’t treat me like a client, he treated me like a brother.
It was so refreshing to be around someone that is so passionate about what they do. He is without a doubt doing what he is called to do.
I half jokingly told him that when I play MJ, he has to be there! Without a second thought he responded, “I’m there! You tell me when, and I’m there!”
I feel so extremely blessed!
The Players and the Rest of the Crew
Gotta give a shout out to all the post grad and high school players at Impact! Thanks for being supportive as well and for inspiring me to get better! I pray that each of you make the most of your great opportunity and push forward each day with every ounce of your ability.
I can’t wait to see you guys play again when you come to Orlando!
Also wanna thank everyone else at Impact who helped me stretch, train, rebounded balls for me or filmed me during practice. Much appreciated!!
So what’s next for me?
Well, I’m happy to let everyone know that I plan on going BACK to Impact Basketball sometime in December for more training!!!
In the meantime, I will continue to work on my game and my conditioning.
Matt has been generous enough to offer to put together a nutrition plan and training program for me to continue while I’m training on my own.
All of this means one thing! I’m getting better Mr. Jordan! A lot better!!! 😀
me vs. MJ…it’s getting clooooooooser 😉
