Coaching Moment: Access to Coaches

Coaching Moment: Access to Coaches

I like to always inform a potential member of CrossFit Be Someone during our Free Consultation that what we sale, our product, is our coaching. But our coaching is not just limited to the one hour of class.

You are not paying for access to a gym, you are paying for access to coaches.

One thing I have learned, is that many individuals don't know how to utilize a coach.

I don't blame you. I was there as well.

When I first hired a business coach to help me understand how to run a better business, I didn't know how to utilize that coach of mine. I figured they would just give me all the answers on their own and somehow all my issues would be resolved.

But I had to learn because if not, I would always find myself in the same place.

What was the TWO biggest things I had to learn?

1) I needed to reach out and be honest with my coach.

2) I needed to trust my coach and work on what they told me consistently.

At first I would just wait until our scheduled monthly meeting to ask a question or let my coach know I felt lost. What I missed was that I did not have to wait that long. I should just ask the question or express where I am immediately. When my coach was able to, he would respond. But more importantly, he would help me find a solution.

Which brings me to the second point. Some of those solutions seemed questionable in my head. I would thing to myself that the solution provided wouldn't make a difference because it seemed so small of a task. And then, just like my coach said, it would work. I needed to trust my coach and understand that I don't know what I don't know. My business coach is a professional and this is what he did on a full time basis. This is what he studied and helped people with and me thinking I had a better idea or that I knew better was just setting me back.

As your CrossFit coaches, Nutrition coaches or both we are no different.

We are here to provide you with our knowledge, expertise, accountability, feedback and overall solution to your problem.

We are not just here to provide you with immediate feedback in class. Reach out to us. Text us or call us. Ask us questions at the gym. Let us know how we can help you or keep you more accountable. Take advantage of your free 90-Day Athlete Check-Ins.

For example, if you look at your workout the day before, reach out to a coach and ask what would be the best way for YOU to specifically do your workout the next day. We can help you with that.

If you utilize your coaches in 2024, you will find yourself at a difference place with your health and fitness at the end of 2024.
