In this episode we look at one of the most important aspects of sport performance and participation…. Motivation. We talk about strategies to help set up a culture in your gym to drive and sustain motivation through the training year. There are many different motivational strategies and each athlete is motivated differently. We discuss many different ways to enhance motivation and make the daily grind of training and competition fun. Creating a culture of excellence in your gym and develop a plan for keeping the energy and excitement toward your goals both individual and team helps to keep motivation high. Whitney Snowden former Head Optional Coach at Cincinnati Gymnastics joins us to give her perspective on motivation and what has worked well for her in the past.
