"Good coaches can see faults and have the tools, knowledge and ability to correct these faults. If you can get your athletes to consistently move better, you are a considered a “good coach.” But what then makes a “great coach”? I believe great coaches have the ability to go beyond the movements and connect with their athletes. I call this the “deeper side of coaching,” which is developing an awareness of your athletes’ potential, building trust and creating an atmosphere of success. The deeper side of coaching is about establishing and nurturing a strong relationship between an athlete and a coach." Find the full journal article here

Reading Corner: Women, Training, and Misconceptions. Misconception #1: Cardio is the only way to get lean. Misconception #2: Lifting heavy weights will make me bulky or turn me into a bodybuilder. Misconception #3: Oatmeal and fruit for breakfast is a great way to start off my weight loss day. Read the full article here.
