The WAR Classroom

The WAR classroom is where we dig deeper into the WAR lifestyle. We have designed curriculum that the coach will lead the student though for 90 days. After 90 days, and if the student did well, then they will graduate from the program and then move onto phase 2, which is the mentor phase. Remember, we are trying to turn all of our students into WAR life coaches.

Pretty cool…

The WAR Gym and From Student To Life Coach

The WAR Gym & From Student To Life Coach

We got a new rack and platform in the WAR gym. This WAR Gym continues to lead people to positive change and I cannot tell you how thankful I am for it. We have been going for 5 years now and the experiences have been priceless. Our little WAR community is quite special.

Again, people come into WAR being a student, but then move into a mentor, and then onto becoming a WAR life coach. Our coaches grow from within. We feel that in order to become a good life coach you have to first experience what it is like to be a student.

The Daily Experience 10/26/15

Garrick competing in his first weightlifting competition. Snatch 102/#224

This dude has come such a long way; it’s incredible to see what he is now doing with his life. Since coming to WAR he has brought an incredible energy, attitude, and intensity that has helped the program, culture, and WAR community to improve. I’m thankful that I have had the opportunity to work with him and to witness such an incredible transformation take place. He had a major collar bone injury occur even less than a year ago and has bounced back by showing great determination. That’s what life is all about–bouncing back, which Garrick did, now causing him to become a tougher man because of his injury and addiction experiences.

Nice work bro and keep making it all happen. The future looks great for you. The barbell way of life is the best way of life. Stay close to the barbell and you will be safe and successful 🙂

WAR Life Coach Ben Simms, Power Clean #275.

We have so many life coaches at WAR who truly care about helping people to find change. Our philosophy is that if we strive to live the WAR lifestyle each day then our life will improve, as will our character grow brighter. The WAR lifestyle is challenging which is why confidence can be found by living it. If we feel good about ourselves then its easier to stay sober.

I’m thankful for all the wonderful life coaches that we have at WAR. Lets keep creating them 🙂

An old picture WAR LC Client Cj (left) and LC Nick. This is back when CJ just got here from Wyoming to experience WAR. He has since graduated from the program and is back out on the oil fields as a pipe line welder doing good as ever, and still sober. Cj is hands down one of the toughest dudes I’ve ever met.
