There are so many aspects to why coaching is fulfilling. I had always wanted to be a coach and pursue a training career and potentially a football career but eventually realized that my passion was training others to succeed. Over the last ten years coaching and training, I’ve experienced virtually every type of personality and athlete you can think of, beginners, funny people, complex thinkers, laid back students, committed players, frustrated athletes, high expectations, low expectations, and many more. The greatest asset a coach requires is the patience and ability to communicate effectively with all of these personality types. Coaching and Personal training, in some instances, is essential to an individual and often a critical piece of someone’s life, and while it’s meant to be fun, it can also provide stress.
