Google defines coach as an athletic instructor or trainer or a tutor who gives private or specialized teaching.
Coaches come in all shapes and sizes. In all fields and professions. And are in all aspects of your life.
I consider myself a coach of a few things.
First, I’m a fitness coach to my athletes that I train both in a group setting and in a personal training session.
Second, I’m a motivational coach. I believe people find motivation in what I do and how I approach aspects of my life.
Finally, I’m establishing myself as a business coach to gym owners who are looking to grow their gyms.
And I have my own coaches too.
Ted Dreaver is not only my athletic coach but also a business mentor. And John Burch has coached me through business for the last 2.5 years.
But you know what? I really still need a coach for life.
And that doesn’t have to be one person’s role. In fact, I prefer to have a team of coaches. People to tell me to hit my macros, to take off a day of work and hangout with my kid, to go on a date with my husband, to make sure I do the laundry, and to remind me to write my blog every week and write my goals daily.
My team is there to keep me accountable. I can’t do it on my own. I’m no better than anyone else. I know that my life may seem put together, sometimes, from the outside looking in, but I’m no different than you.
I need a coach.
You need a coach.
We all need a coach.
Oh, and by the way, coaches cost. Maybe a lot, maybe a little. Maybe money. Maybe time. Maybe love. Maybe reciprocation. But they cost.
So don’t ever, for one single second, discredit the value a coach has. Because their time, their intellect, and their wealth of knowledge hold a value that can never be replicated.
PS – Here’s a quick check-in about my kick ass kid. She’s a rockstar. We practice saying mama and dada daily. She’s sleeping SO MUCH BETTER. She loves to play, eat, and sleep. She is so interactive and loves to spend time with her dad. I can’t believe that 6 months has flown by so quickly. She’ll be 1 before I know it.
So, in closing, what I know for sure is I don’t want to take any second for granted, I want to value every lesson I am taught, and I want to maximize EVERY SINGLE EXPERIENCE in my life!
Keep rocking it rock stars and if you need a COACH, I’m right here!
