If I could give only one piece of advice to any athlete, of any sport, it would be to find a coach who’s passionate.
- 🙏🏿Passionate about the sport.
- 🙏🏿Passionate about the process.
- 🙏🏿Passionate about YOU.
Nothing in life ever comes easy, and that definitely rings true with gymnastics. It doesn’t take much to get frustrated & pissy because skills aren’t “clicking” the way you want them to.
That’s where having the right coach comes in.
Arguably, my most favorite parts of seminars are when athletes get stressed out & frustrated. Seems like a weird thing to like, right?
Let me explain.
These are the moments that I get to step in, and make a real, purposeful difference (at least that’s my goal).
These times allow me to put things in perspective: “Hey. This is gymnastics. This is a recreational activity. This is FUN.”
If I’m working with you, there will be a few things happening to calm the situation:
👉🏾 1) I’m going to stare you down with some intense eye contact so you know I’m being honest, and we’re going first look at the fact that gymnastics is HARD.
If it weren’t, everyone would be able to do it, and I wouldn’t have a job (😜).
👉🏾 2) We’re going to emphasize the progress that you’ve already made in our short time together, to put your work into perspective.
Small miracles happen, but long-term progress takes time.
👉🏾 3) We’re going to work 1-1 and break your skill down into simpler parts that YOU can best understand and grasp, so you feel confident with a training plan moving forward.
When you can learn to take a step back, put your situation in perspective, and change your mindset, you are capable of anything.
This isn’t about gymnastics, it’s about dealing with life’s problems & stress in a healthy way.
I love these moments because I’ve been there. I’ve been frustrated, I’ve been pissed off & about to quit. I know what you feel.
And, I’m also eternally grateful that I have these opportunities to turn your outlook around, and help you realize that your hard work is noticed, appreciated, and WORTH IT.
