Athletes Notes

Daily Mindset

“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible to your approach.” - Tony Robbins

We can’t always see what is ahead on the windy road.
We don’t know if there will be a lightning storm, a massive oak tree blocking us, or maybe it’s road construction pushing a lengthy detour. All of which can cause a change in our planned arrival time.

Direction without flexibility is a recipe for disaster, trying to force a path that may not be possible. Yet flexibility without direction is just as harmful, living like a leaf blowing in the wind.

It’s not a matter of if, but when, we hit the roadblock and will need to adjust our route. But the destination does not change. Dedicated to the “what” we’re after, but flexible in the how.

The prescription is the stimulus, not necessarily what is written on the board.

Workout [36:00 - 51:00]

It is the coach's responsibility to bring the energy in the room for the workout. This may be the most important job of the coach, to make the class fun. There should be a big loud countdown to start the class, and every member should hear their name loud by the coach. This lets the member know the coach is watching them, and also creates a good feeling by hearing their own name. The coach should work the room and there should be no doubt, if someone walks in the room in the middle of the workout, who the coach is.

Community Building [51:00 - 60:00]

Use this time to give the class a talk on how we should eat, move, think, connect, or sleep.

Or this could be a time for the coach to make 1-on-1 connections on a deeper level.

This may be some of the most important minutes of the entire class. Build your community here.
