Welcome to Bigtime! Auburn University.... just across the road from Toomer's Drug Store.....where life stands still.....as if it's still 1967 in there. Counter fountain milkshakes and root beer floats along with grilled sandwiches. And, the newly renovated Toomer's Corner, which is bouncing back from some criminal malice that it had a few years ago. Grab some lunch at Zoe's Kitchen right there on Magnolia Avenue and take a walk through the beautiful campus. I did see a couple of huge members of the Auburn Tigers Football team leaving a local establishment called The Hound. These guys raved about the bison burgers there.
If you care to see one of the truly incredible college fitness centers,the Auburn University Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, then take the tour. It's an amazing structure and I would hope that there's a lot of fit college kids hanging out on this campus because this place tops them all! Unreal.
One group of college kids on the campus who are definitely in superb condition is the Auburn Tiger Football team. And of course, the physical training that they encounter is quite different that what's going on over at the fitness center. Led by Head Strength & Conditioning Coach Ryan Russell, the Tigers are able to perform at optimal levels. The comprehensive program that's implemented there ensures that the athletes succeed and meet high expectations. This is a football program steeped in tradition and home to many great players. James Brooks, Takeo Spikes, Tucker Fredrickson, Bo Jackson, Pat Sullivan, Cam Newton to name a few. Oh and then there's this Chris Davis 108 yard field goal attempt return. WOW. So, the players know the deal. Train extremely hard.... contend for an SEC Championship.....or for that matter, a National Championship. Here's a podcast/video that I conducted with Coach Ryan Russell prior to the 2014 season. War Eagle!
