Athletes Notes

Daily Mindset

“Water the flowers, not the weeds.”

Imagine your vision being a water hose.
And wherever your attention goes, you water.
Whatever we water… grows.

There is truth behind this. Every day, we are going to spend our water (our thoughts) on something. There is a finite amount. If we choose to spend it on the weeds, the negatives in life, those thoughts will grow into reality.

But the opposite is also true.
Check in with ourselves today.
Are we watering the flowers, or the weeds?

Bathroom, Water, Questions [27:00 - 30:00]

Break for members to use the rest room as well as ask any final questions. This is also an opportunity for the coach to go around the room and chat with athletes regarding volume, loading, and modifications.

Workout [30:00 - 50:00]

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 [50:00 - 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.
