The “Lion and Wreath” is the symbol behind our great company and did you know every part of its design has a meaning. Keep reading to find out what our symbol stands for…
We started with the wreath. Not including the olive branch, this wreath has ten leaves on each side. Each leaf stands for one of the ten general physical skills that we teach and want our athletes to master. They are:
Cardiovascular/Respiratory Endurance- The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.
Stamina- The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.
Strength- The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.
Flexibility- The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.
Speed- The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.
Power- The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.
Agility- The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.
Accuracy- The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.
Coordination- The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.
Balance- The ability to control the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its support base.
Next we have the Lion’s head. Uniquely designed for us this is where the bulk of the meaning of our symbol lies hidden.
If you look at the mane, the lion has seven strands of hair not including the ear. These seven strands represent the seven key steps we have found in all great achievers and successful people inside our training facility and outside in the real world.
The first strand and first key principle in achievement to set a GOAL.
The second strand and second key principle in achievement is to set a definite TIME to achieve your GOAL.
The third strand and third key principle in achievement is to WRITE your GOAL. A written GOAL is exponentially more powerful than a written one.
The fourth strand and fourth key principle in achievement is to PLAN accordingly. Remember, if you fail to PLAN, you PLAN to fail.
The fifth strand and fifth key principle in achievement is to ask yourself what PRICE are you willing to pay to get to your GOAL.
The sixth strand and sixth key principle in achievement is THINK of your GOAL in the present tense as if it has already been achieved.
The seventh strand and final key principle in achievement is to ACHIEVE your GOAL.
Lastly, we have the teeth of the Lion. Each tooth represents one aspect of nutrition that we focus on.
