The media week

Hello, dears!

Have you missed me? I´ve missed you a lot!

Since I got the honor to be included in the Top 100 fitness blogs, things have gone crazy. I’ve been interviewed on TV and the radio this week and messages and emails keep coming. So, I want to apologize for being missing in action this week. Hopefully, everything will go back to normal next week, or i will adjust to the new «normal» next week, and I will be able to read your post as I was used to. 

Also, I want to thank you for your patience and support, none of this would be possible without you!

I know you probably won´t understand a word of Galician (it´s similar to Portuguese), but I want to share the TV interview anyway, haha! 

Have a great weekend!

I´m going to enjoy some rest…

well deserved rest, I think.

Yes, it happened: The interview

Hello, dears!

Finally, I had the interview with the Jordan Marketing Director. She is a charming woman who even showed me the snow, melting,  in Portland.

Only 30 minutes were scheduled but I felt comfortable speaking English, and we were talking more than an hour.  I know I earned the extra time, she didn´t stop typing and asking, digging in my answers. She opened my brain, dissecting my experience inside the Breakfast Club, training habits, expectations, goals, results… but also, personal info, clothing, equipment, purchasing habits, and so on. I had extra questions because I´m Spanish and they focused (and expected) on US athletes.

The Breakfast Club delivers workouts through Facebook Messenger, and I told her  I had used it years ago to train people, geographically remote. She was pretty interested.

 

 

 

 

 

Like 15 questions later, she asked: «How would you improve the program?»

«Hiring me», I said.

«So, you would hire yourself to improve it?», ensuring there was no mistake in translations.

«Yes!»

«OK, actually, that´s a good idea».  Nodded and typed.

What she wrote intrigues me.

I also suggested:

how to turn the workouts a little more interactive, allowing each trainee to turn them harder or easier. The next version of the Jordan Breakfast Club is expected next fall. If you find this feature there, you´ve read it here first, ha!

Of course, if they call me offering a job, I will tell it!!

The conference call

Hello, wonderful people!

Yesterday, I had this interview with Jordan´s Marketing Senior Director. It didn´t go as any of us would expect.

 

I tried to connect to the conference call platform multiple times but I was unable to connect. I spent the whole time of the interview introducing codes and pin numbers, and enjoying the typical waiting music. Quickly, I send her an email apologizing for wasting her time, and that was all.

This morning she sent me another email, setting up a new conference call on Monday. Please, cross your fingers :)

Santa Claus in my inbox

Hello, beautiful people!

While I was sleeping, Santa visited my inbox and dropped an email, look:

mail-jordan

I haven´t spoken about this because the whole thing looked quite secret. The «club» was limited to 300 trainees, I still don´t know how, but I made the cut :)

It seemed to me that Jordan wanted to launch a new training app, and I didn´t want to share the workouts and ruin the surprise. Maybe I´m right, maybe I´m not. Anyway, I did the workouts religiously and I was brutally honest completing the feedback survey.

As I´ve been a good boy, my gift this Christmas is an interview with the Senior Director of Global Brand Marketing.

Merry Christmas!!!
