Daily Mindset

“The only thing that is different about me, is that I'm not afraid to die on a treadmill.” - Will Smith

It’s not about the treadmill. It’s what the treadmill stands for.

Will Smith is not a competitive athlete. If he runs 2, 3, 10 miles… he’s still probably going to be highly successful in his career.

Probably.

But that’s not why he is who he is. He’s not defined by what he’s doing, but how he is doing it.

Full heart, full commitment, full effort. Wherever we go.

How to Run a Practice Round

Bathroom, Water, Questions [23:00 - 25:00]

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 [25:00 - 52:00]

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.
