5 Benefits of a Training Coach

If you are serious about competing, then hiring a coach with the experience to help you achieve your goals is a good way to ensure you reach your highest potential. Below are just five of many reasons to enlist expert guidance by hiring a training coach:

1. Keep Up with Shifting Training Requirements

If you’re a seasoned athlete, having successfully trained yourself and competed in numerous competitions over the years, you may see little need for a trainer. Often our training requirements change as we age, however, due to a variety of factors.You may suddenly realize that years of competition have taken a toll on your body and you’ll likely need to modify your routine to maintain the same degree of effectiveness. When posed with this problem, a coach is your best bet. A professional training coach will be able to make subtle changes to your workout routine to maximize your performance.

2. Expertise When Returning From an Injury

Coming back from an injury can be overwhelming and disheartening for athletes who have become accustomed to their normal fitness regime. Enlisting a coach to devise a new workout plan, one that takes your injury into consideration, will help ensure the effectiveness of your workouts while protecting you from making your injury worse.

3. Customized Training Plan for Your Body/Goals

People who tend to be “followers” at the gym are ideal candidates for a training coach. A gym “follower” is someone who tends to replicate other people’s workout routines, regardless of whether it is geared specifically towards the goals they themselves are trying to meet. If this is you, a coach can help devise a workout plan that is customized to your body and your fitness goals.

4. Keep Yourself Engaged and Challenged

Another good reason to use a coach is if you find you’re getting stale. You know the workouts you need, but it’s become routine. Perhaps you’re having trouble getting inspired enough to train for a breakthrough race. A coach will help you shake up your routine and present you with some new training challenges that will push your performance levels to a new peak.

5. Different Options to Fit Your Lifestyle and Budget

If you do decide to get some professional assistance, keep in mind that there are different options out there. Personalized coaching means you get your own coach who will work with you to design a program tailored to your individual needs and fitness goals. Online, virtual coaching programs are another option that are becoming increasingly popular. Online coaching is less expensive than a personal coach and provides more schedule flexibility, however there is no physical assistance or presence in the gym, which may be an important motivating factor for some individuals.

For an added boost, try incorporating Kaqun Water™ into your workout routine. Kaqun water is fortified with liquid oxygen. The oxygen in Kaqun water penetrates the mucous membranes of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract, and then penetrates the tissues. This process occurs quickly, reducing mental and physical tiredness within a short period of time.* Athletes—from day-to-day training to intense competition—will likely notice better performance and greater endurance.*

Dr. Minkoff, founder of BodyHealth, says, “Plenty of people I work with are drinking Kaqun Water with great success and they love how it makes them feel.” These days, boosting your oxygen levels is a smart move to stay energized, promote health and offset some of the effects of a highly polluted and oxygen-deficient world. If you are looking to be in the best health possible, give Kaqun Water a try.*

Maintenance Required: Eat, Sleep, Drink, and Move Your Way Through 2020

In the nearly 8 years that my wife and I have lived in Colorado Springs, never have we seen the amount of road construction currently taking place. Whether it’s a main road or side street, there’s no part of town missing out on the “fun”. And it’s not just re-paving or patching potholes. Whole lanes are being ripped up with miles of digging in order to replace underground pipes of all varieties.

At first, I thought all the “weed” sales (pot is legal in Colorado) might be producing the influx of tax funds for all this construction. But a running buddy of mine made me aware of a bill that had passed in the last couple years which freed up an enormous amount of funds for these projects.

Turns out the city has a certain amount of time to spend the money. Based on the number of orange cones and “ROAD WORK AHEAD” signs, it looks as though no penny is being spared.
