​Head Coach and Next Level founder Christian Matyi – a/k/a "XN" – gives notoriously complex answers to even the most simple of questions.  He'd always rather you "think more" than "know more." So you can only imagine what'll happen when there wasn't any question even asked . . . 

You never know what his many years of coaching will inspire him to claim as "relevant" to your progress. 


First meeting of the new Next Level Spring '13 Team

There's something exciting, disorienting and enlivening about the first team meeting.  Could be the excitement for finding the next great physique hero.  Could be the pressure of trying to be a solid coach.  Or could just be the million paper cuts I get from collating all the basic materials for the athlete notebooks.  

It's a snowy, wintry day in Boston as this next team in a long line starts it's journey.  There are a few who have to bail out because of the snow, but as with all team start-ups, we don't sweat the early attendances.  The final roster for the Spring '13 team is a few weeks from being solidified.  A little snow won't stop our progress.

I'm eager to share what happens with this new batch.  A tighter team, our first run on Northeastern University's campus, and the first time in years that another team mentors a new team (Advancement Team '13 will be helping the stability, growth and progress of the new Spring '13 team).  

Off into the snow I go, paper cuts and all, to meet with the next batch of leaders reaching their own Next Level.
