The athlete/coach relationship is built upon mutual trust. My job is to train clients through motivation, inspiration, and sincerity. A client will always work harder when they know their coach has their best interests at heart. Workouts build character and help to bring out the best in people. There is no fast track to success through training. Only through metered and measured effort can you see gains – slow and steady is the key. One application of this is in speed training. Speed is unlocked through relaxation, which is counter-intuitive. The harder you try to run, the slower you will go. This relates to life in that working toward a goal takes persistence and patience. The most rewarding thing I impart to clients is confidence. Oftentimes, people limit themselves by their own perceptions. As a coach, I help them to see through these imagined barriers to achieve levels of success they may not have even known were possible.
