Church Hoppers:Looking for the Best Religion

A good friend of mine and excellent coach, Tom Billups, described the “church hopper” concept to me when we coached together at Cal. Unfortunately, some athletes are always looking for the next best program, similar to people that are always changing churches and/or denominations in search of the next enlightenment only to find anxiety after the first month.

Don’t get me wrong, we should always be conscious of our current training regimen, and searching to add new components that can benefit ourselves. Like most religions and spiritual paths, the journey for physical improvement is not always exciting and requires high levels of commitment and sacrifice in order to grow.
