Accelerate Your Results By Asking For Help
[TRANSCRIPT] Accelerate Your Results By Asking For Help Today we’re going to discuss a topic that came up a lot from athletes on recent phone calls: asking for help. If you are a formerly-competitive athlete, you know this is not one of our fortes… "I got it, coach." "I can do it myself." "It's okay, I can figure it out."  "Don't worry, I've got it." "No, I'm good, thanks." Maybe when you were actually competitive, you were like me as a kid and didn’t need help because you let your talent carry you until you cracked. Sometimes we’re even taught that if we ask for help, it’s a sign of weakness. I decided to rally our Train Like A Gymnast coaches to discuss this topic as well as take a peek into their own personal experiences. You’ll get to hear from our operations manager, Claire and our Registered Dietician Nutritionist, Heather. Every week, the three of us have a team huddle meeting, and last night we talked about this topic after we got the business stuff sorted away. We'd love to hear what insights you have from this episode, email us at team@trainlikeagymnast.com.

Client Spotlight: Alexis Iglesias
[TRANSCRIPT] How You Know You Need To Update Your Life's Blueprint.  Today we’re going to dive into what a coaching call with me looks like with one of our VIP team members, Alexis Iglesias. You’re going to learn so much from HER call, you’re going to want one of your own! At first, on the surface, it looked like Alexis needed help with time management and finding a schedule that works for her, but after some digging, we discovered it stems from some unrealistic expectations she put on herself from an outdated blueprint. What's a blueprint you might be wondering? It's the rough plan or vision you have set for yourself. Sometimes it stays with us for years despite changes we go through in life. (Married at 24, kid at 25, making $100k by age 30, buy a house, etc) Then, when our lives don't match this blueprint, we get frustrated thinking about where we SHOULD be. But our expectations of ourselves are based on this outdated blueprint we created when we were maybe 16 or 21. There's nothing wrong with us, we simply need some updating to being fulfilled with where we are. When our blueprints are aligned with reality, we are fulfilled. Do YOU need to update your blueprint? We'd love to hear what insights you have, email us at team@trainlikeagymnast.com.
