What's the secret? .
You probably won't want to hear this but it's simple. Patience, consistency, being honest with yourself and hard work. .
Having worked with hundreds of athletes over the years I can safely say a big issue is the lack of patience. People want it NOW. They look at their favourite athlete and decide that 12 months of hard work should be enough to get to where they are. .
WRONG. You need to accept that to reach the top it takes time. Stop rushing. Pick a coach, stick with your coach and tick the boxes every single day. The reason I say stick with your coach isn't from a business viewpoint.. it's from a common sense viewpoint. If you chop and change every 12 months you just increase the duration it takes to reach your goal. .
Why? It's simple there will always be a phase where a coach needs to learn your body, this applies to both offseason and prep. Your best look will take time to be hit with your new coach as they would be prepping you for the first time. Building a new relationship will take time. Developing trust and understanding will take time. So yes be patient.. but stop creating even more hurdles for yourself in the process. .
With a good coach you will always reach your goal. Give them time. - 1 hour ago
