From Coach Pete: Imagine its summertime and you’re home for the summer on break. You don’t have a whole lot to do as a 14 year old and you have to decide how you want to spend your summer. Would you decide to wake up at 5:30 in the morning to start training at 6:15am? Nolan did exactly that this summer and his dedication to self-improvement is going to help his athletic career tremendously. Not only did Nolan make significant gains in the gym, he also learned the value of hard work and accountability. Nolan’s progress over the past couple years has been the direct result of making a decision, and following through to the best of his ability! The future is bright for this young athlete. We are proud of you, Nolan!

My training goals are to get strong and conditioned for sports!
3 – What keeps you coming back for more?
My passion for being the best I can be keeps me coming back.
4 – What is your favorite part of the Roaster Barbell experience?
My favorite experiences are when the whole gym gets together for events and cookouts.
5 – How has training improved your life outside of the gym?
Training in the gym has really improved my work ethic outside in the real world, because you’re never going to get better in the gym if you don’t work hard and it’s the same in the real world.
6 – What have you accomplished that you never thought you would ever do?
I have accomplished several things but the thing I thought I would never be able to do is the assault bike. I never thought I would be good at the assault bike but the more I did it the more tolerant I got to it and the better I got at it.
7 – What has training taught you about yourself?
It has taught me that I can do things that I may thought I would never be able to do.

My favorite gym activities are back squatting and power cleaning.
9 – What is your least favorite gym activity?
My least favorite gym activities are rowing and jump roping.
10 – What advice would you have for someone who is looking to get started?
Just go as hard as you can during the workouts because you feel really good after you worked hard. Keep working on the movements you are having trouble with.
11 – Is there anything else you would like to add?
All I would like to add is to never think you can’t do something in the gym because with hard work you can!
