Training for Success

Prior to designing a Personalized Training Program, I meet with my clients to assess their current technique level. This technique assessment is followed by a session where we discuss program expectations, define clear goals and set a specific achievement timeframe. A positive mental attitude and a willingness to overcome challenges is a crucial element to reaching goals. My job as a coach is to provide creative solutions and positive feedback and to ensure my clients achieve their goals in a timely manner.
