Flash & Dash


Good coaching and subsequently good training is not about flash and dash. Good training is actually somewhat mundane, day to day it is not very exciting. You must repeatedly do the basic things well and keep refining and fine-tuning. Good training has substance, with the focus clearly on the need to do activities and methods that will get the athlete better. Don’t get caught up in hype and marketing so characteristic of the Internet training porn that so common today. There are no secret training methods or quick fixes, don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. To achieve success at any level you must do the work and do it consistently well.
