Wingman Weeked Retreat- Team Building (w/video)

By on August 26, 2008

TSB Magazine’s first annual Mansformation Wingman Weekend has come and gone. We will be discussing the many different aspects of the retreat over the next week. The trip far exceeded all expectations and words can barely do the trip justice.

Lance, an author for Honeyandlance.com, attended the retreat and posted a review of it on his blog today…

Check out his Mantransformation review of the trip…

Take a look!

Team Building and Accomplishments

The retreat consisted of many different facets… one of the most grueling and inspiring portions of the trip was our long trek up into the mountains of the Dominican Republic for a white water rafting trip.

A bus picked us up at 6am… most of us went without sleep as we had partied hard the entire night before…well into dawn. Thankfully we were able to catch up on some sleep during the 3 hour bus ride into the mountain.

There were seven of us crammed onto a raft along with a guide. Right from the beginning it was clear that this was not a lazy river ride… this was the REAL DEAL! As you’ll be able to see in the video, it took every ounce of strength, endurance, and drive to successfully make it down the river.

During different portions of the journey… we lost a crew member and had to make the emergency rescue… at another point our raft over turned and all of us were scooped into different rafts.

But when it was all said and done… WE MADE IT!!! And we all were filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment that only comes after pushing yourself past your comfort zone.

Inner game doesn’t come from reading books…. it comes from experiencing life and overcoming challenges!

    I’m guessing there is no chance on another trip by January. The rafting looked cool.

    Lost ROCKS!

    Second, I wouldn’t say no chance.. I had the time of my life. Maybe we can do something sooner. Bobby and I are already talking about it.

    It’s funny because the BEST stuff wasn’t even caught on camera during the rafting. Just about everyone was thrown from the raft at one point down the river.

    Then there was a point where we were stuck on a rock right in the middle of one of the rapids. We actually had to jump out of the raft and float past it in out wetsuits. As one of the guys jumped in his leg was jammed between a rock and something and got stuck. Another boat is approaching the same rapid and our guide jumps out of our boat and dives in the water to save our buddy from getting run over.
    Adrenalin through the roof!!!

    With 3 of us left on the boat myself and 2 attendees, we managed to free the raft by jumping up and down on it till we were free, continued on and then proceeded to scoop up the rest of the team.

    Another time, an attendee sitting next to me was falling out cause we were stuck on an angle so I grabbed him, gravity kept pulling so another one grabbed me and finally the guide grabbed him. Too late though, the entire boat capsized and we were off floating down the river aimlessly grabbing onto anything to get back in.

    It wasn’t just us and our boat as a team; it was the entire tour of strangers working together as a unit.

    This part of the trip ranks up with one of the coolest things I have ever done extreme sports wise in a team environment.

    Just sick!!

    The retreat was awesome! It is the best vacation I had in a long time. Props to Bobby and Mike for organizing this amazing trip!

    I had a really good time hanging out and having some good conversations with the super cool guys. I learned a lot about attraction, business, and self-improvement from them. The villa that we stayed was unbelievable. It’s like one of the mansions where celebrities live. And indeed we were celebrities in DR. We were having so much fun that we attracted so much attention everywhere we went.

    More important though, is that the retreat did what it promised – man transformation. I feel like a new man after coming back. People around me can tell that I am more confident and alpha, and women are responding positively. I am looking forward to the next trip!
