Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Travis Wallace and I am currently the Men’s Basketball Strength Coach at the University of South Florida. I have been extremely fortunate to coach and mentor student-athletes over the past 6 years. In 2015, I spent two years as a basketball strength and conditioning graduate assistant at Virginia Commonwealth University. Following my stint at VCU, I was very blessed to be selected as a sports performance intern at the University of Central Florida. During my time at UCF, I had the opportunity to work with every sport besides football. This internship allowed me to gain confidence in my ability to train different sports besides basketball. After the UCF internship, I became the Personal Strength Coach for NBA Champion, Kyle Lowry. A year later, I returned to the collegiate level to leave an everlasting impact on young adults at Florida Gulf Coast University. When you travel and train with an NBA All-Star for an entire season, you gain knowledge of what it takes to maintain success. You begin to understand how important the extra hours are when nobody’s watching.
I am a former Division 1 basketball player at the University of North Florida, whom fell in love with the hard work and commitment that it takes to renovate the human body by testing its limits. Throughout my post athletic career, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have witnessed success in my field of work. However, I decided to share a secret with the world that I know has helped me and millions of people when referring to striving for goals. Throughout my two years as a Strength and Conditioning Graduate Assistant at VCU, I spent the majority of my time in the weight room coaching athletes or lifting weights. If I wasn’t in the gym, I was in the library studying for my certification to become a Head Strength Coach or writing introduction letters to coaches around the country. The hours that I would spend “working on my craft” eventually paid off and laid a path for my success.
The mentality of putting extra hours in regardless of what I was trying to do became something that I realized was extremely useful and necessary. There are so many people in this world that have the same dreams as you. So, the question is, what will you do to separate yourself. Everyone is working Monday through Friday due to the normal hours of work. However, what are you willing to sacrifice on the days that everyone else may feel the need to relax. If you are truly ready to invest in yourself, adopt the “Treat Saturday Like A Tuesday” mentality.
