“Come on Ken! Stay up! You’ve got this! Just a few more seconds!” were the encouraging words coming my way from Coach B, as I lay stretched out on the floor early Tuesday morning, arms and chest raised, head tucked, in full Superman mode.
With effort dripping from my brow, it seemed only fitting that my initial evaluation/workout would include the Superman near its conclusion. After all, the man that is Coach B, Bryan Meyer, is the performance coach behind probably the best physical specimen in any sport, Superman, aka Dwight Howard!
Will You Help Me Get Better?
“Will you help me get better?” was the humble request I sent Coach B’s (@CoachBMeyer) way a couple of weeks ago through Twitter.
I wasn’t sure if he would even respond, due to his schedule and the fact that he didn’t know me, but he did!
Over the next couple of days we exchanged a few messages and then this past Monday afternoon I was at his B Meyer Training facility, in Altamonte Springs, Florida, discussing my goal of playing Michael Jordan and what this site is all about.
More Than A Game of 1-on-1
For those of you that have been with me since the beginning here at mevsMJ.com, you understand that this journey is much more than a game of 1-on-1 vs. Michael Jordan.
While MJ is the end goal, this site is about pushing the limits of what is viewed as possible by the majority and maximizing the potential we all have in whatever venue you choose to do so.
Me + B Meyer Training
I’ve written in the past about preparing for WHEN, not if, your goal will happen and that’s what working with Coach B Meyer and his staff is all about!
I’m preparing for WHEN I check the ball in to Michael Jordan!
While I may never be able to do the things that Dwight Howard can do, I do want to maximize every bit of Kenny Eller! (Note: I didn’t say that I wouldn’t be able to do what Howard can do! Always gotta think positive!)
So over the coming weeks, I will wake up at 5am, drive some 50 minutes a couple of times a week, to work with Coach B and his staff to become the best me that I can be.
I must tell you that after my first three sessions I already feel stronger and more prepared! (Don’t be afraid Mr. Jordan! ;-))
My initial commitment is to train for a minimum of three months and to give every bit of myself in each session.
I sincerely want to get BETTER and I know that working with Coach B will get me there!
I may not be where I’d like to be currently, but I can already see where I will end up and that is beyond exciting!
Session number four is early Monday morning and I CAN’T WAIT!!!
me vs. MJ…the soon to be in NBA shape journey continues! As always, thank you following along!
