Strength & Conditioning Coach. Performance Coach. Athletics Coach. Fitness Coach. Physical Preparation Coach. Speed Coach. Performance Specialist. The name doesn’t matter; we all have the same goal (helping athletes) with many paths to get there (and yes, some are better than others).
Development is actually not at all about the seminars, the schooling, the amount of alphabet soup on the back of your name when you send an email. It’s not about the number of years you’ve coached, at which level, and which CEUs you last took. It’s how we communicate with athletes, work to earn their trust, adapt to their needs, and care about them.
