Gene Tunney told how concentrating on the wrong “facts” almost caused him to lose his first fight with Jack Dempsey. He awoke one night from a nightmare. “The vision was of myself, bleeding, mauled and helpless, sinking to the canvas and being counted out. I couldn’t stop trembling. Right there I had already lost that ring match which meant everything to me—the championship. . . . What could I do about this terror? I could guess the cause. I had been thinking about the fight in the wrong way. I had been reading the newspapers, and all they had said was how Tunney would lose. Through the newspapers I was losing the battle in my own mind. “Part of the solution was obvious. Stop reading the papers. Stop thinking of the Dempsey menace, Jack’s killing punch and ferocity of attack. I simply had to close the doors of my mind to destructive thoughts—and divert my thinking to other things.” follow @ffbcgreenford for more!
Passing by this marker today, I thought back to last year.
It was my first marathon. It was horrible but people were shouting “Beyoncé is waiting for you at the finish”
I can’t shout tomorrow, so I am gonna do I now. Sooo many people running tomorrow that I love but I need to give just a few shout outs.

My favorite thing about working with new clients is seeing how their prior experience influences the way the move and strike. Baseball players have a hell of a right hand but tend to stand too bladed with their feet. Football player have agility like no one else. Swimmers drive from their shoulders and never seem to get tired. @hatseeew is a unique case- she’s been a dedicated power lifter for some time, has a straight right that could stop a city bus, but isn’t muscle bound like a lot of serious lifters I’ve worked with. She has a long background in a variety of sports and dance that give her agility and a complete body awareness which translates into boxing seamlessly. She’s a quick study and always ready with a laugh and a smile and puts up with my high energy morning sessions without skipping a beat. Cheers Hattie, always a pleasure.
Working a few drills with my man Bryan "The Savage" Torres...blocking and slipping to get inside and do work and then blocking, rolling and returning fire🔥
This dude is as motivated and hard working as anyone I have worked with and has come along way since his first day with Denis and I at @invincible_ark fitness. If anyone ever questions or doubts what they are able to accomplish this Man is always my go to example of hard work and dedication!
