I spent 20 years working at a Fortune 500 company and learned a lot about leadership and management. We learn something from every boss, manager, leader, coach, mentor etc. Even the ones we don’t enjoy working with. You learn what you like and what you don’t and hopefully when you’re in that leadership position you apply those lessons to your own style. For me that positivity and encouragement and hopefully that comes across in my style. Growing up I played baseball, basketball, football, soccer and golf. Baseball was my best sport and I played four year of varsity in high school. A few highlights from those days were catching a perfect game, getting to play with my brother on my high school team and hitting a home run off my childhood best friend. Now, like most washed up high school baseball players, I enjoy coaching my son’s baseball team and playing golf.
I recently had a turning point in my life where I knew the career I was in was not my life’s passion. I left my job and jumped head first into a new career brewing beer. It’s want I’ve wanted to do for almost a decade however I had a serious case of imposter syndrome. What if people don’t like my beer, I’ve never brewed commercially before so who I am to try this as a career. My confidence was low but those around me encouraged me to give it everything I had and it’s been a success. I offer this story because I see this regularly in the gym. We lack confidence to try a new movement or to go for that PR because we might fail. Well, you’re stronger than you think. You can push a little harder than you think. We must be willing to fail to grow and more often than not we’ll be surprised at our abilities.
My purpose for coaching is to help people improve their lives for what they enjoy outside of the gym. Love playing golf, I want to help you in the gym to improve your golf game. Love playing sports with your kids, want to complete a triathlon, want to ski better, let’s work together in the gym so you can have more fun outside of the gym.
