From all of the years of working with the youth, there is one thing that holds true to what I see as one of the biggest changes in my athletes — CONFIDENCE.
They may walk in to a session not knowing what to expect but they end up leaving with a “I just did that” accomplished feeling.
Something that all of their parents often tell me is their daughter or son’s gain of self-confidence through their training.
Being willing to learn the proper fundamentals of basic movements like deadlifts, squats, & presses then taking that and progressing in their strength is something that adds to this found confidence.
I have a 16 year old that can pull a 215lb deadlift and then I also have a 13 year old that is learning with just the bar. The beauty is that everyone is different — but they all end up leaving with an accomplished mindset.
The goal is for this confidence
that they find in the gym
to carry over into their everyday lives.
From school work to social situations they are put in — their confidence from believing in themselves to try a pull up for the first time or a full push up for their first time is something that completely correlates into stepping into a math test with confidence or looking in the mirror and seeing STRENGTH.
Partnering up with IF GIRLS RAN THE WORLD has been a great reminder as to why I do what I do with my athletes (and clients!). Seeing someone believe in themselves a little more each day from progressing in fitness is totally life changing.
In October, I am be teaming up with If Girls Ran the World with a goal of logging miles & raising $250 for Girls Inc. under TEAM TRUE TO YOU FITNESS! (click the link for our actual fundraising team page!) We’re looking into races in October that we can run as a group to go towards our total miles.
