Why Coaching Is The Secret To Long-Term Fitness Success

In the world of health, fitness, and sports, coaching isn’t a “nice to have” benefit. To succeed and reach your greatest potential, it is an absolute necessity. It’s the difference between going from good to insanely great.

The fundamental question is this:

How do people get better at what they do? How do they become great?

Traditionally, there are two views about this:

One is the teaching view. You go to school, you study, you practice, you learn, you graduate, you go out into the world. People help you along the way, but you learn to manage your own improvement. That’s how doctors train, that’s how lawyers train, accountants, scientists, the list goes on.

And the thing is, it works.

The second view is the coaching view. In sports, from rookie levels to the pros, players are never on their own. Everybody needs and everybody has a coach. Everyone. Even the greatest players in the world have a coach. Sometimes, more than one.

In my opinion, and experience, the coaching view works better.

 

How Does This Apply To Your Own Health & Fitness Success?

Personal coaching can take you to a whole other level of awareness. Great coaches are your external eyes and ears. They provide a more accurate picture of your reality.

Personal coaching can take you to a whole other level of awareness. Great coaches are your external eyes and ears. They provide a more accurate picture of your reality. They recognize the fundamentals. They break your actions down and help you build them back up again.

Being coached can be painful. Nobody likes being observed, or “judged.” There are times when you don’t want to have to work. There will be periods where you will get worse before you get better.

Without a coach, you won’t recognize the issues that are standing in your way or, if you do, you won’t know how to fix them. And, somewhere along the way, you stop improving.

I now realize that was exactly what had happened to me as an everyday athlete. This is why the “sports” model of coaching in health and fitness is so important.

If you feel frustrated or helpless, hiring the right coach might be the most important step you ever make. It could be the one thing that’s holding you back from making real, meaningful progress and change.

Whatever you decide to do, please don’t wait.

It’ll be one of the single, greatest regrets of your life.
