Anyone can get you tired, that’s if it’s the whole purpose of the workout session.

Example:   “I want you to run up these stairs until I stay STOP”

But wait, what’s the transference of the example to your daily life activities or occupation?

 Will STOP—could be infinite or immediate-- have served the purpose?

Training plans should aim to answer questions put across by the athlete client.  What are their goals, timelines, weaknesses, fears, etc.?

Armed with this information a coach or trainer fills in the puzzle with the respective athlete’s individual qualities. These aspects become the beacon that enlightens trainer plans:  what, when, why, how long, and how much of the prescribed activity.

Individual attributes that need to be addressed include:

  • Chronological Age v Training age
  • Level of Technical Development
  • Injury History
  • Speed -Strength/Power
  • Stamina
  • Suppleness
  • Skill

Modern training has been invaded by many fads that ignore these quality assessments resulting in depressed athletes/clients. The industry is ideally in the business of selling results and not promises.

Serious practitioners will give you a money-back guarantee should you fail to hit your goals, after all, don't you demand the best quality cloth from your tailor based on the money you've put down?

Go ahead and put the same targets on your coach/trainer, after all, you're investing in your health.
