5 Lessons Athletes Learn from Sports

I began playing sports at an early age. It began with soccer and baseball and then expanded into football and basketball. I even wrestled for a season or two. In high school, I focused primarily on football and baseball, and baseball in college. I have always loved being an athlete, and I have always been appreciative of the lessons I learned from playing sports. These lessons have served me well in all aspects of my life including business and being involved in my community.

1. Hard Work: If you want something in life you’re going to have to make sacrifices that others may not be willing to do. 

2. Practice your craft: No matter what sport it was, if you wanted to get better you had to practice. This is the same in anything you want in life. There are no short cuts. There’s no magic words. Being great at something takes hard, consistent work.

3. Teamwork: A lot of the sports are team sports. When can teach kids how to rely on others, to work toward something that cannot be done alone, and at times be selfless.

4. Leadership: How to encourage, pick up, and educate others. There’s so many opportunities in sports to be a leader. You never have to be the most talented to be a leader. 

5. Losing: this is the toughest part, but you’re not going to win every game/contest. When you lose, losing with grace and dignity is an important lesson to learn. Regroup, make corrections, and prepare for the next game. 

I’m so thankful for the valuable lessons sports taught me at a young age. I’ve been able to use these lessons in almost all areas of my life.

Maximize Results with the “Starter Pack”

We’ve just launched a brand new Training Program, named the “Starter Pack” to help athletes maximize their results through the busy Summer season.

This powerful package provides six group training and six private, 1-on-1 sessions for one flat fee and at a steep discount off of the regular priced programs.

There is some bad news… we can only take the first 10 who snatch up this crazy deal at each location.

 

Chantilly, Va

Group Training Starts 6/17 Offered Monday through Thursdays, and Saturdays

 The nZone (14550 Lee Road)


Hagerstown, Md

 Group Training Starts 6/24 – Offered Mondays and Wednesdays

 Ruth Ann Monroe Primary School (1311 Yale Drive)

 

So why would you want to add Private, 1-ON-1 sessions?

  • Target Your Individual Needs and Goals. If you have specific needs, goals, or schedule that doesn’t fit directly into what we do in our group based offerings, this is the perfect way to maximize progress toward those.
  • More Advanced Training. Because each session will be in a 1-ON-1 setting, this will allow for us to utilize more complex movements that can’t be part of larger group sessions.
  • Accelerated Results. More individual attention and higher-skill movements mean that we can truly “release the brakes” and get you the fastest results possible.

 

This package is a savings of over 25%, if priced a separate programs.

We have to limit this special offer to the first 10 as we introduce this program, so you’ll need to act fast.
