Working out with the Pontiac 8th grade basketball team. I always make it an effort to educate the guys and give them real life examples on the WHY on the things we do. If young athletes don’t see the WHY, it just becomes boring work. Just remember, ” Any fool can make another fool tire.” Aka- work them hard and not have an explanation for the reason behind why one is doing the work. Yes, it does take extra time to go the extra mile to educate, but that’s where I put my emphasis at. People mention how important it is to be authentic to the people you work with, so you either have it or you don’t have it, but it will be apparent to the trainee. This is my life and to spend an extra 20 minutes trying to get a general fitness or athlete understand what is going on is what I live for! #Pontiacil #AthleticDevelopment #Centralil #PontiacTownshipHighSchool #PersonalTraining #SpeedDevelopment #StrengthTraining
It’s such a blessing to be in a position to not only inspire, but also mentor such a great group of men. It’s more than just training for me, I try to touch souls with EVERYONE I work with.I’m a mentor, brother, father figure, motivator, friend, family, educator, and then a trainer. It’s not about how many I have, but it’s more about how can I change someone’s life!
