So which is it? I know we all love comfort and I know that luxury can be very intoxicating. I have had the opportunity to train at both state-of-the-art facilities and hole-in-the-wall facilities. Which was best? I chose Spartan facilities any day. I find that I tend to relax too much when I workout in luxury and my effort is not the same. Luxury can be very distracting. This may be a personal thing but, think about it and let me know your thoughts.
The photo approve is a firearms range training facility in the country of Jordan. I would say it could be considered very Spartan. The training conducted there was very intense and the practice that occurred was deep-seated because there were obviously no distractions.
Please do not misunderstand me! I love modern range facilities with moving and turning targets and all the other cool stuff. However, when it is time for some serious combat training, nothing beats a simple range, where you must use your creativity to make the training beneficial.
In the “Little Book of Talent”, by Daniel Coyle, it is stated that “Simple, humble spaces help focus attention on the deep-practice task at hand: reaching and repeating and struggling”.
So what do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts on this issue. While you are thinking about it, I am going to get some dry-fire practice in. All the best.
