AT SEMPER PORRO OUR PHILOSOPHY IS OUR NAME: ALWAYS FORWARD

THE AIM IS SIMPLE


 

Our guiding principle is our name – Semper Porro, which is Latin for Always Forward.  Every day, we aim to be better than the day before. When there are setbacks, we look at them as opportunities to learn about what we did wrong and how we can be better.  When we succeed, we celebrate knowing the work we’ve put in to achieve that success.

Anyone can benefit from the philosophy of Always Forward.  Whether you are a beginner or an elite athlete, when you focus on steady improvement it’s amazing how far you can go.

FOCUS ON THE PROCESS


 

At Semper Porro, the process is simple – improve every day, work on fundamentals, emphasize long-term progress.   There’s nothing revolutionary about the concept of moving forward, or being disciplined. But, knowing and doing are two different things. Because of that, we focus on explaining the ‘why’ behind things and work to instill good behaviors in our athletes.

A good process will carry you forward.

One of the most valuable and important parts of execution is consistency. You have to be steady. Wild swings in volume and intensity will throw you off track and lead you nowhere. Real progress is accomplished little by little. Every day you have to do the work, whether that's training hard or resting hard. If you have a training journal, look back at the last several months. How have you been? Good? All over the place? Now look at your results. How do those compare? In the long run, the consistent performer will win out.

My number #1 Fan !!!!!

Semper Porro is all about development. It's who we are, it's what we do. We develop people. Not just as athletes, but as people. It's not always easy, or straightforward, but we believe in the unchecked possibility of human potential. All you have to do is be committed to forward movement. Growth. Development. Today at the San Luis Rey Road Race, Travis Longfellow took another step forward in his development. The result wasn't what we were aiming for (2nd in the Cat. 3s), but he executed well. He stayed safe, managed the race, put himself in position to win, and then tried his best to play his cards. He's still learning, but he'll get there. He just has to keep going. Keep pushing, keep improving, keep developing. Always forward.

I’ve got serious respect for actively working to develop racers throughout the ranks like you do! It’s the piece that’s missing from a lot of teams.
