A coach is navigation system, albeit an extremely advanced one, and the client is the driver. In other words, no plan in the world will work, if you don’t. You need to do the driving.
My role as your coach is to consider your circumstances, provide you with the relevant tools, knowledge and pathway, appropriate to your goal. You are the driver. It is your responsibility to follow the pathway to the best of your ability, provide feedback and communicate with your coach along the way if and when circumstances change.
Training is a building tool. Use it to help you grow and develop towards your goal.
Often people workout hard for the sake of working out hard. Each workout or session should be for the sake of developing you and making you better. Relative but different. We often need a hard workout to make you better, but that doesn’t make working out hard the goal.
Have a plan that considers your abilities, lifestyle, interests and individual ultimate goal. Execute the plan.
Albeit important, there is more to nutrition than macro-nutrient and calorie targets.
Nutrition should not be complicated or unnecessarily restrictive. Effective nutritional guidance considers individual goals, lifestyle, experience level, personal preferences and eating behaviours.
We will focus on the things that will make the biggest difference to the individual and not lose ourselves in the unnecessary details. People often fall into a state of paralysis by analysis when it comes to nutrition. Understand the important concepts relevant to your goals and block out all the other noise.
