I mentioned it in a Clay Webb post, but it was serious. Webb mentioned a good weight room as being important to him. Okay, perhaps that is not the determining factor, but Kirby has shown he is no fluke. He is building something real. Let's put some investment into the program now. After ESD 2018, it will be clear that there is enough juice in the pipeline for perhaps 2 maybe 3 years. But you must feed the m-onkey. Keep the pipeline filled. That means having facilities commensurate with the best programs. Can I get a harrumph!?

    we just got a new weight room/gym at work. it is pretty nice. probably not as nice as UGA's but for potential employees it is a sweet incentive.

    I'm not interested in competing with The Gumps for useless square footage bragging rights. Most of their floor space is unneeded. I do want state of the art training though. So let's figure out what we need and make it happen.

    It's interesting how we as a nation just get fatter and fatter while we also keep posturing about fitness. Seriously, most employees would visit a company donut bar more often than a company gym.

    haha that is often true

    our company does a health assessment each year and the generalized results get sent out and it directly impacts our health insurance rates as a whole. overall our score was good as our rates went down for 2019

    the gym is free if you use it, they pay for 5k races, we have standing desks and treadmill desks, plus we can sit anywhere in the building we choose. not tied to a specific desk

    we have our share of folks who prefer the donut bar, for sure, but overall are a fairly fit company compared to many other office job companies

    I mentioned The Gumps, their weight room is always the 21,000 square ft elephant in the room when discussing what we need facility wise.

    I'd like to see a comprehensive assessment of our training facility needs.

    I’d like for you to go away but que the song “we can’t always get what we waanntt...” if an updated weight room keeps bringing in the top level recruits and we obviously have the money, spend it?

    I think having a weight room where you can fit the whole team would be nice. Current one can’t do that. So, time for an upgrade.

    I concur

    This kind of thing--state of the art weight training facility--makes a big difference imo. Having great nutrition experts has to help, too. I would spare no expense on organic food and nutrition counseling. I'm sure most Dawg fans remember how many pulled hamstrings we used to get every season in the CMR years. It had to be something we were or were not doing because other teams weren't getting them. Right now, I think we have a potential weak area with broken bones. The nutrition staff needs to check the blood levels of the bone enhancing vitamins and minerals--Calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K2, etc. We shouldn't be having so many broken bones imho.

    interesting. Not sure how many of those might have been avoided - not sure of the mechanics involved in the various broken bones or even how many of them. Surely it's something that can be looked into by one of the 8,433,876 auxiliary staff we've hired.

    Any time you have a cluster of injuries, I think it needs to be looked at by the 8mm. I read an article one time about the importance of vitamin D (you get it from the sun). It is supposed to be very important for a number of issues, but bone health is one of the most prominent (rickets). One team supplemented to the typical summertime level of lifeguards, and they felt like they did better as a team. Anyway, maybe others can pitch in and clarify, but I think Fromm, Parrish, Cleveland, Marshall?, McGhee, have had broken bones. I could be wrong on a couple, and I might have missed a few.

    for an office environment, it has plenty of resources. can have your family become a member of the gym too. fitness class from HIIT to cycling to yoga, personal training is avail. a lot of people don't take advantage but plenty do

    I just got back from the gym. Did Jacob's ladder,row machine, AMT, and jumped rope

    overall we do seem a much less injured team under CKS than we did under CMR

    if I remember UGA was one of the last Div I programs to hire a full time, dedicated S&C coach

    I am a Packers fan and for the last several years the Packers have consistently been one of the 3-4 most inured teams in the NFL

    when it is happening year in and year out it leads me to believe there is an issue with the program. Since UGA has course-corrected I think it is even more true now than I did before

    ha! I don't do weights. no philosophical reasons why. I am just lazy and I don't enjoy it

    I do bjj a few times a week, run when the weather is nice, and eat entirely too much. I do just enough exercise to avoid being obese basically. I like the jacobs ladder and row machine for impact free cardio

    Nothing that specialized lighting cannot fix. Perhaps a retractable roof if it is an iffy day. 😉

    I highly recommend it for everyone. Leave your ego at the door ha. You will get manhandled by people you would swear could not kick your you know what. And they'll do it over and over again in new and imaginative ways haha

    Lots of fun though. It is a culture of mostly really nice and helpful folks.

    Was a new weight room not incorporated into the IPF? If not, that's just poor planning.

    Seeing how I’ve owned my own landscaping company for 20yrs and never sat at a desk I have to ask. W th is a treadmill desk?

    haha that is often true

    our company does a health assessment each year and the generalized results get sent out and it directly impacts our health insurance rates as a whole. overall our score was good as our rates went down for 2019

    the gym is free if you use it, they pay for 5k races, we have standing desks and treadmill desks, plus we can sit anywhere in the building we choose. not tied to a specific desk

    we have our share of folks who prefer the donut bar, for sure, but overall are a fairly fit company compared to many other office job companies

    Seeing how I’ve owned my own landscaping company for 20yrs and never sat at a desk I have to ask. W th is a treadmill desk?

    Exactly what it sounds like, friend. Imagine a desk you stand at. So higher. But instead there is a treadmill so you have to walk

    Pretty much. The ones we have look different but that's basically it

    we just got a new weight room/gym at work. it is pretty nice. probably not as nice as UGA's but for potential employees it is a sweet incentive.

    It's interesting how we as a nation just get fatter and fatter while we also keep posturing about fitness. Seriously, most employees would visit a company donut bar more often than a company gym.

    I would have never guessed. Thought my leg was being pulled. That someone would think of such, much less someone actually buying one. Boy I’m really lacking in this life.

    Not going to be an Adonis but it's movement instead of sitting for 8+ hours

    Loved when Keith Marshall (DGD) trolled Tech before our game this year. Maybe we can upgrade our weights and sell the old set to GT. They need them.
