At the end of the day, injury prevention is basic. We are in the business of building and managing strong, fast, resilient athletes and supporting them to perform at their highest potential for as long as possible. And, in my experience and coaching philosophy, PREVENTION = STOPPING injuries before they can even form or take place, not just limiting them when the first signs show up.
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.
