Daily Mindset

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence of the future” – Seneca

How often do we rush to the finish line… only to rush to find the next?

It is in our nature to crave progress. It is also in our nature to be wary of complacency. This is where a misconception can form, leading to dark times. We live for the “future”, a finish line that we’ll never reach.

The aim is absolutely not to ignore the future… but to instead embrace the present. Let’s move past the logic of the “pursuit of happiness”, and embrace the breath in our lungs at this moment. Wherever we go today, let’s go with everything we got.

How to Run a Practice Round

Bathroom, Water, Questions [17:00 - 20:00]

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 [20:00 - 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 [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.
