So, I sat in my chair for a solid 10 minutes trying to think of a topic for today’s blog post when I realized, “Crap…I’m getting dumb. I can’t figure out a good topic to post to the website!”
THEN, I realized I should ask you guys for one. So…....
What kind of posts do you like to read about most here on the CFIB blog?
Informational? About what? Nutrition; technique/form; physiology?
Opinion? Mental toughness; fitness industry; business and training practices?
Humor? C’mon…I’m sure I’ve posted SOME funny things in the past?
Let me know. And while typing this out…a thought came to me…
Your Relationship with Your Coach
One of the major contributing factors to our gym and community’s success is the fact that every Coach knows and trains every athlete. If we don’t know you, we will find you and learn you. It’s how we operate.
But what is the significance of that relationship? A Coach’s job is to educate and inspire you. Every coach has a different teaching style – the way he/she talks, the words they use, their presence in the class, the way they demo, etc. Undoubtedly, certain athletes gravitate towards certain coaches due to compatibility.
This can also have some drawbacks. Mainly, the inability to communicate with a coach when something isn’t going well or working the right way. Your goal to becoming fit is a two-way street here at CFIB. I need YOU to TALK with your coach and give them FEEDBACK on how they lead you.
Remember: Coaches are people too.
We need love and attention in the form of feedback on our performance and ability to serve you as athletes. If you feel, AT ANY TIME, that a coach would benefit from something you have to say…please…tell them (privately).
Scott T. has already got his son, Owen, training for the 2046 CrossFit Games. Look at the form on these push-ups, the boy has TALENT!!!!
