Maximize every second you can by purposefully including as much benefit as you can into the warm-ups. But, at the end of the day, keep it simple and realistic. Make it useful and easy to come back to. Preparation is everything. Treat warm-ups accordingly.
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.
Networking is really about conversations, not about getting the job.
Constantly seek to experience your strengths in new ways. We are never finished growing or developing.
Don’t shrink down to fit someone else’s expectations.
Find you, be you, and always keep making steps forward.
And help people along their journey where you can, too.
