why do I coach activities?

I have been asked this question quite often. More so by my mother in law than anyone else. The easy answer is simple…… I enjoy it!

To elaborate on that, I have people coming to me of all ages and abilities.  These people come for a variety of reasons including:

  • Wanting to try a sport for the first time
  • A social event
  • Corporate reward
  • Team building
  • Fitness/weight loss
  • Regular classes
  • And many more

Whatever their reasons I have so much fun working with each person, helping them realise their own capabilities. When you have someone who doesn’t think they can do an activity and they leave with an excitement in their eyes from having completed it, that is such an amazing feeling. If, as a coach,  you don’t thrive on that feeling, I would say you are in the wrong place. To me coaching is more than a job,  it is a vocation.
