The Basketball Fitness Class — 4 Reasons Why Swish House Basketball Workouts Matter

I. We believe our basketball fitness class can change lives, fitness, and games forever. We know, in basketball training, fitness, and athletic performance, the cost of your positive habits are in the present. The costs of your negative training habits are in your future performance on and off the court.

II. Basketball athletes, young or old, that get frustrated about playing time, or accolades, or stats, or weight loss, or the coach, aren’t learning the most important life lesson that basketball can teach us: that if you optimize for one single goal or destination, you only win when you arrive at that destination. If you live, train, and love the process of the best pro athletes in the field and double down on their process for eating, recovery, training, fitness, and skill development, you’ll eventually reap the dividends and will keep winning for eternity. My college coach at Kent State always said, “Love what you do, not what you get.”

III. Often the first 30–100 days of starting a new basketball process or life habit — becoming a better shooter or endurance runner for example, or joining a new startup team or moving to a new city are the hardest. Change brings the most anxiety, difficulty, and internal questioning. Getting a new coach, living with a new partner, moving to a new team or different country, or playing for new management will often always be harder on the front few months. Experiencing struggle and adversity at the beginning of change is common, so don’t overthink it, just keep going. You’ll be proud of what you’ve done a year from now, believe me!
