Sometimes there is a schism between what people say and what people do. There’s no doubt in my mind that a great coach does not have to be a great athlete. But for the average trainer working with the average client this simply cannot be the case.

We are all walking laborotories, our own experiment in human potential. We can rise to the challenge or simply be “voyuers”.
