Campers will wake up early in the morning for a conditioning workout. We use early wake-ups to help the campers develop discipline, which we define as ‘doing what you don’t want to do when you don’t want to do it.’ On any given day, campers can expect to take part in a workout that may include long distance runs, sprints, circuit lifts, or other cross-training exercises. On the first day of camp, each camper is put into a running group with campers of a similar running level. Campers will be with their running group for every morning workout. Each morning, campers will be evaluated on the amount of effort they put into their training.

Every day at the intensive camp, there is a practice session that is dedicated to learning a variety of different wrestling techniques. During these technique practices, campers are put into their wrestling groups based on their weight. Our staff teaches moves ranging from basic fundamentals to advanced techniques. We make sure to cover a variety of situations in the bottom, top, and neutral positions. Each camper will have an opportunity to learn techniques from our entire staff at various points throughout the camp. With our camper to staff ratio of 10 to 1, campers will have access to one-on-one attention with our coaching staff and a vast amount of knowledge.

The hard wrestling practices are designed to push the wrestlers to their limits to understand the true definition of hard work. These hard practices include live wrestling, hard drilling, and conditioning exercises. Campers will have multiple practice partners within their wrestling group so they can wrestle against different styles and levels of competition. During hard practice, campers are being evaluated by our coaches for the amount of effort and intensity they are putting into their wrestling training. Hard practices provide the campers a great opportunity to use new techniques in live situations, build mental toughness and develop endurance.

Every evening, campers have a workout that changes daily. During this session, the campers are split into their running groups. Each group will take part in a different cross-training workout that may include running, sprinting, and lifting weights. During the cross-training portion of the workout, campers are evaluated on their effort. Reviewing moves from the day’s technique practice is also a large part of this session. It is important to review the new techniques and give campers the opportunity to continually progress their skills. This practice is another great chance for campers to ask questions and work with our coaching staff one-on-one.

He is also a I DID IT shirt-earning graduate of the 1999 and 2000 J Robinson 28-Day Intensive Camps. Rohan is now a full-time motivational speaker, and we look forward to him telling his amazing story to the campers.
