Coaching like a GPS system

I get in trouble with my wife frequently for bringing my coaching philosophy into our home. The feedback we provide at Sparta is like a GPS system. It is short, efficiently relaying to the athlete what to do, how to do it, and when the movement needs to be intensified.

There is very little give/take and subjective comments (good job vs. bad job) because there isn’t time during a workout or a specific set of an exercise. By setting up a solid relationship with the athlete, they know we have their best interests in mind, which saves us so much time during workouts and allows more frequent, direct guidance.
