The ability to determine whether or not athletes have improved their performance (and which aspects need improvement) and are healthy should never be regulated by the “we have no money” line. Here’s how to Test & Retest on a budget, on schedule, and as sport-specific and realistic as possible!
If you are considering hitting on your female coach, please consider the following: we are likely just doing our jobs. Don’t distract, annoy, or demean us. Keep it professional. We will too! Make sure there is clear, explicit interest and consent! Don’t assume she is interested. Nobody likes a creep! Speak up for women and make room for us where you can. Nobody owes you anything!
If you can start operating out of a “my performance doesn’t impact my worth as a human AT ALL” mindset, you’ll see, feel, and embody a change in your confidence.
Again, it’s okay if you don’t always feel confident, satisfied, or worthy.
Sometimes we’re a bit too gloomy to see the positives and the lights within ourselves.
Yes, the world is complicated.
Yes, science is very complex.
Yes, technology has many intricacies.
Ultimately, they were created to make our life, jobs, and information in general easier to upkeep, easier to access, and …. easier.
But, if we can’t communicate complex information effectively, it really doesn’t matter.
We have to stop making complicated sh*t more inaccessible. If a 15-year-old athlete really wants to learn about physics, they can read a text book. Just teach them how to jump!
