Hiking is one of the best fitness activities any athlete or person can do. The more challenging the hike is, the more accomplishment and gratitude you will feel once you reach the top. Not only is a hike, such as Camelback mountain, rigorous and physically challenging, it is an opportunity to be in nature and appreciate the outdoors. Reaching the top never gets old…remember though, its not how you start! Its how you finish!
Build your championship routine
Being a champion starts with having a championship routine. You day-to-day routine from the time that you wake up until the time that you go to sleep will dicate who you are as an athlete and as a person.

Paper Doesn’t Forget
We like to say that paper doesn’t forget. This helps us to remember to write things down often, and its especially beneficial to keep track of the things you are doing EVEryday in a journal to improve yourself. This is not just for physical workouts like push-ups, pull-ups and your throwing sessions and bullpens, it is also for one’s mental self development, ie: writing down something kind you did that day or writing down your next genius thought or idea. It is very gratifying to string together a long period of time of consistently improving yourself and keeping track of what you’ve done to do so. When things may not be going so good in the future, you will always have your journal of gold that helps you remember what you are capable and it will be there to help you get back on track and continue refining your work ethic and championship routine.
