Seahawks Training Camp Looks More Like Adult Summer Camp

There is nothing but good vibes in Seattle as the Seahawks undergo training camp off of a playoff season.  Stemming from head coach Pete Carroll, the team is buying into some unconventional practices that could have the league turning heads, but just as quickly jumping on the bandwagon.  Looks like they are having some fun too, making this year’s training camp seem more like an adult version of summer sleep away camp.

It starts here, at the Virginia Mason Athletic center paced on the banks of scenic Lake Washington.  According to ESPN, the facility includes an on-site barber and top notch chef serving organic and free-range meals.

A training camp DJ?  There’s nothing else to say about that except that it is awesome.

After it being optional last year and seeing a wealth of participants, Pete Carroll decided to make yoga sessions mandatory for this season.  It is all part of the mindset he instilling into his team, building positive players with good “physical and mental well-being.”

The Seahawks seem well-poised to be even more successful this year given their strong chemistry and positive mental attitude.
