Training Economy: At What Expense?


Private vs public sector comparisons are not apples and oranges. While the economic structures are different, the physiology and practical side is very similar. Usually time is the enemy for both parties, meaning the public sector coach who is usually on salary focuses on results and wants more time, while the private sector coach has to compromise results as time limits his or her profits. Being efficient in training by eliminating rest periods and doing too many paired exercises will eventually render programs less effective. What looks good on paper may not look good on the field or stop watch weeks later. Everyone has a right to send their kids to college as I don’t believe in socialism style business models, but honesty on what is compromised must be transparent. Training by it’s very nature is a poor investment, as everyone puts in a pound and gets an ounce, but like precious stones, it’s worth every penny.
