24 Jan Check out what drives Coach Laura to be her best!
Hi readers! For those of you that haven’t taken my class, my name is Laura Nowell and I am obsessed with fitness. I didn’t always have a love for fitness or the gym. In fact it was always a struggle to motivate myself to get to the gym and it was very easy to find an excuse not to go (everyone nodding their heads in agreement?). I finally fell in love with fitness when I got into a good routine and found a program that worked for me. From there it was simple. After I got into the grove of things my next step was to find a community of people who were kind of like me and were on some fitness journey.
When you first google the term community the second definition to appear states “a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals”. Isn’t that what our gym is all about? Whether you go with a friend, you meet a new friend there or your coach is your friend, we all have a common goal: attitude, our health and fitness. So when you are going to lace up those sneakers or thinking about snoozing your alarm at 5 a.m, remember the community that is there waiting for you.
So that’s what drives me to go to the gym…but what about coaching? For me, coaching with the community in mind is step one. Step two is knowing your audience. Whether there is an athlete prepping for a competition, or someone brand new to fitness, every person needs to be coached. They are all a part of the community, though what they need from me may differ. From there, and one of my new favorite things I learned from my nutritional coach (yes, I also have a coach), is the meaning of the term coach. The term refers to a coach and buggy; the job of the coach and buggy was to pick someone up from where they are and bring them to where they want to go. That’s what a coach’s job is all about. I am motivated by this idea of helping people get to their goals.
I hope to see you at my class on Tuesdays at 5:30 and 6:30 pm
