    "I can't" or "I won't"

This phrase is used for all kinds of reasons whether it is an actual exercise or not attending workouts.

It requires sacrifice, difficult decisions, the ability to get uncomfortable and prioritizing ....

  • One Percent Better

    The journey of reaching your potential is a slow and tedious process that takes place over many days and years of commitment. This journey never ends but changes as goals are met and new goals are set.

This approach takes the focus off of the end game and places it on the process of improvement. Athletes who appreciate and understand the process of improvement will make the daily deposits of improvement that will lead to their long term success in their sport.

These athletes were driven to outwork their competition every day. Traits such as waking up earlier, practicing longer or training harder are all part of what made these athletes who they were. Most importantly the great ones have the ability to keep this work ethic even when No one is watching them. Most of us NEED a coach. Someone who pushes us to be the best version of ourselves that we can possibly ....
