Here’s Real-Life Lesson #5,776 that I’ve taught football players for 40 years and college law enforcement students for 2 decades: #WeFit because #WeLift together. And vice-versa. No team will ever fit or become fit without lifting together – both kinds, souls and weights.

‘Team chemistry’ is the most overused, overrated phrase relating to team-building. I never have and never will use the phrase ‘team chemistry’ to students and athletes because ‘team chemistry’ is an abstract concept that lacks a concrete process of how it occurs and ‘team chemistry’ implies that team-building just happens mysteriously and randomly.

Our team-building philosophy always has and always will center on lifting – souls and weights. We don’t search for ‘team chemistry.’ We seek to fit – dual meaning. To fit together by getting fit together. The strongest bonding agent is team-lifting – building strength together in mind, body, and soul. Strong teams win, weak teams lose. Weak teams get hurt physically and psychologically. Strong teams don’t. The number-one priority in our player-safety program is unconditional committed to the working out. Not half-assed casual commitment. Full unconditional commitment works out – dual meaning. In the gym and on the field.
