Yay Burpees!

Why you need a coach:

Let’s get honest. You lie to yourself. You cheat yourself. You make excuses. You half-ass it. You quit on yourself all the time.

Its just reality. The sooner you just step up to the plate and take responsibility for the choices you make and the results you have in your life. The sooner we can start some real progress.

That’s why you need a coach and it’s the same reason I need to coach. The first step to taking control of your life and to drive in the direction you want is get someone around you who will call you on your BS. Someone who will support you in the direction you want to go. But, it’s not just about accountability. Coaches are great sources of that but we have other avenues that can provide that in our lives as well. CrossFit also uses community to hold people accountable.

Coaches need to know how to get you from Point A to Point B. So in addition to a coach holding you accountable, they need knowledge and insight.

They also need passion and the ability to encourage and uplift their athletes when they fall. It’s a tough balance. They need to be hardliners who call out their athlete’s shenanigans but at the same time, encourage and support them to reach their objectives. You can’t be too harsh and cause division and alienation, but not too squishy that they let someone coast by on their own BS. They need to be able to encourage you to lift that bar when you think you can’t.

So, are you clear? You and I both need a coach. No brainer.
