How did you get into fitness coaching?
I have five kids of my own. When we got out here to Colorado Springs, they immediately start playing sports at a local recreation center. I would show up to support my kids, and I saw the way coaches were training their players. There was a massive gap in training fundamentals. The coaches were trying to get the kids to do certain things, but they were not able to because they didn’t know how to teach the fundamentals. These kids need to learn the fundamentals to be able to compete at a high level.
I tell the kids to fall in love with the process. There’s not an overnight success type of deal. You have to make sure that you take care of the inside of the body. You can train hard and won’t see a change if you aren’t eating the right foods. You need to eat healthy so you can perform at a high level.
Build quality relationships with the kids. When you have that strong connection with them, they trust you, believe in you and the system that you are bringing in.
Choose a good trainer for your kids, and then trust the trainer. Trust the whole process and the system that they’re bringing in. This allows the trainer to do their assessment, sit back and watch your child develop.
