There is a time for coaching and then there is time for fun. Can fun and coaching coexist? I always say that a perfect training session is when the athlete leaves with sweat on their brow, smile on their face and they are moving better, feeling better and performing better. Some athletes perform at their best when they are having fun. Are you a player who smiles, chats with your opponents, stays loose and enjoys the competition? If so you should train in the same emotional environment. Athletes like Allen Iverson, Djokavic, Peter Jacobson, Jerry Kelly, all have fun whether they are in competition or just at practice. Practice? Are we talking practice? Practice as you play and play as you practice! Winning and competing is no joking matter but optimizing your performance mental state and getting them to the point where they feel loose and free to compete without restrictions or boundaries is an art. For some athletes they look serious and fierce but they are having their own version of fun on the inside. Communication with your athlete will help you create a training environment that will fit their personality. @mytpi @performbetter #CheersEveryone #CoachGlass
