This week’s guest on the podcast is Mark Watts. Mark is the former education director at EliteFTS, a strength coach of 15 years, served in the USMC, and is one of the most well read, and wisest guys I know in this field. He currently serves as a 5th grade school teacher in Columbus, Ohio.
Most of the material on this podcast has to do with biomechanics, sets, reps, periodization, and similar material. I wanted to go a bit of a different direction this episode, but to something more global, which is coaching, leadership and personal development. For that topic, I couldn’t think of anyone better than Mark Watts. Many coaches are familiar with Mark’s columnist work on EliteFTS, particularly his ideas on professional aspects of sports performance.
This episode is all about the sports performance industry, coaching, leadership, and making the biggest impact you can on your athletes.
The longer that I’ve been a coach, the more and more I realize that real “success” is not defined by your win and loss record, although that is important (especially if you want to keep your job, in many cases), but by the effect you have on the lives of your athletes.
Today’s episode is brought to you by simplifaster.com, supplier of high-end athletic development tools, such as the Freelap timing system, kBox, Sprint 1080, and more.
