Each person that seeks to engage in a health and fitness journey participates for a different reason. Some are seeking a finish, some a PR in time and/or distance and others are out to experience something new that has been unattainable prior to now. As a coach, I customize training plans based on the person’s why. It is of extreme importance to analyze the why on a regular basis to ensure that the ultimate goal stays in sight. I embrace the journey one day and one step at a time.
