"You look at some of the top athletes, they've gone beyond controlling every single lifestyle factor - sleep, what passes their lips and goes into their bellies.

I'm assisting the USA Wrestling's National Coaches Education Program by providing some feedback on their coaching certification content.
Parents and athletes, here's a good take home statistic I learned during this process.
There are 2,500,000 volunteer coaches in the United States alone, and less than 250,000 receive any formal training. Put another way, there is more than a 90% chance your coach hasn't even taken a first aid or CPR class, let alone been taught how to coach! Read that last sentence again. It's frightening!
It's fantastic that organizations like USA wrestling are implementing required education for their certified coaches. But for those of you not in wrestling, maybe you shouldn't be relying solely on your coach to become your best... I encourage you to contact me to see how my education and experience can help in your specific situation.

"I just remember getting back to the athlete area, to an empty room. And it just being like a devastating feeling. I wanted the Games to finish surrounded by friends and family, hugs, everyone happy, but it was the exact opposite. I finished it by myself in an empty room with nothing but disappointment." Mat Fraser 2nd Place, 2015 Crossfit Games
