🤔 great coach or great “workout-er”?
For years, I’ve posted many days which looked like this on Facebook. The point is simple: real coaches learn more in one day than most influencers do in the course of a week, month, quarter, year, or career. I’ve been at this 15 years. Do the math.
I have a curiosity about fitness celebrities, the ones who’ve never directly managed or coached hundreds of people. If they’ve never paid their dues, never logged valuable experience, never been mentored in a full time professional setting, but are just great “workout-ERs”, why do we care? I was a hobbiest like them too, in the 15 years before I became a professional.
Was Michael Jordan the all-time greatest coach? Did Arnold produce every winningest bodybuilder since his day? Over the years, different people in my network have held up the brag that they hired some elite athlete to train them. My response: 😬. The best teachers I ever had weren’t concurrently taking a full time block of college classes.
