Coach Jerome reflects on the history of Small Group Training, its merits, different varieties and setting YOUR intention with training.
We’ve been making progress, training regularly, getting stronger, getting leaner, getting faster and then…injury, workload increases, other responsibilities or commitments creep into our lives and our training takes a holiday. Sometimes is can just be a few days. Sometimes it can be a fortnight. And sometimes it can last for months or years and all those awesome results we started to see from healthy habits and regular exercise start to fade.
Head Coach James Maskey speaks candidly on finding his way, values and training philosophy.
I am a textbook over-thinker. I get in my own way every single day.
I’m frequently told by my family and friends to “relax” and “get out of my own head!” I overthink details, conversations, situations and decisions.
Strength and Conditioning Coach Jerome shares his insights into the importance of tracking your training.
I want to start with a pretty simple statement that should set the tone for the rest of this post:
If you are not keeping some sort of written account of your training, you are NOT maximising the potential benefit of said training.
It’s disheartening hearing people say they don’t have the time to train. Usually what they really mean is they don’t prioritise their training. And fair enough, maybe. We don’t all need to be super-athletes, we don’t even need to love our training, but if you’re reading this, you’ve probably realised the benefits of exercise, either directly or indirectly. So, rather than highlight those benefits, I want to talk about the ‘why’ and ‘how’ to prioritise training for the sake of dealing with the uncertainties in the rest of our lives.
