The Process


Training to improve performance in the athletic arena is a process. Here are the steps in the process as I see them:

  • Define the process- Lay out your goals and objects. Be clear on the ultimate destination
  • Trust the process- Get started, a journey of 10,000 miles starts with the first step. Proceed step by step with the destination clearly in mind.
  • Refine the process- Constantly fine tune and prototype.
  • Assess the process – Make adjustments and corrections based on the assessment and continue the process.

It is a process not a model because the body is complex, self organizing and highly adaptable. Focus on the process will help guide the athletic body toward the ultimate destination – optimum performance in the competition arena.
