Eleiko Equipment

Coach Poliquin makes some excellent points here. First,
the importance of surrounding ourselves with quality and motivated people.He states that we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with. While I can't vouch for the specifics of that statement, I certainly concur with the concept that we tend to reflect our enviroment. Surround yourself with quality people and you'll see your own effectiveness improve. Athletes know that great teamates and great competition bring out the best and cause us reach higher.
He also defines the difference between price and cost, making the point that the cheapest bar may end up costing more in the long run when it has to be replaced after limited use. That is also a great life lesson applicable to training as well. Quality training is more valuable than just plain hard work anyday. Often quality training and hard work go togather, but one can work hard at the wrong things or with poor technique and accomplish nothing of value. Work hard and more importantly, work smart. Below is another clip put out by Eleiko that is interesting. We have 13 Eleiko sets in our weight room and I can fully endorse their claim of being the best in the world.
