As a trainer, teacher or coach you need to show up, be present (not thinking about what you have to do that night or on the weekend), be at your best and give your best.
Every day. Every class. Every drill. Every workout. Every scenario. Every debriefing.
This is not a some time thing, it is an every time thing.
Because what you do is too important not to. When you show up and go through the motions it is disrespectful to the participants in your program, and it is dangerous. Your failure to show up and give your best may cost one of the men and women in your class their careers or their lives down the road.
You might be thinking, “That is a lot to ask of a trainer.” You are right. It is a lot to ask. If you are going to accept the title of trainer, coach or teach, then you also need to accept the responsibility and accountability that comes with that position.
Is this easy? No. Some days you are functioning on too little sleep. Some days you are teaching a class you have taught 100 times before or for the fifth time in a week. Sometimes you are teaching a class with some challenging people in the group. That sucks. Too bad. Embrace the Suck, look for the good, and give them your absolute best.
If it is too much to ask of you, that is fine. Don’t take the job.
