At the end of each day I like to take a moment to reflect. It has always been one of my favorite parts of being a coach. For that brief moment, the gym is silent. It always makes me smile. You appreciate the blood, sweat and tears everyone put in that day and look at this simple space that represents the goals of so many coming to fruition. I love how the people I coach bring out my best, how they push me to “sharpen my ax” and become the best coach I can. I love the loud music, the laughter, the friendships, and the PR’s… but I also love the silence. Looking at the empty gym and knowing that tomorrow morning I get to do it all again.
