AUTHOR: Brad Johnson, Head Coach & Founder, Axes Performance Coaching
Welcome to the Coaches' Corner blog, powered by Axes Performance. We see endurance sport as an enabling force for good in the lives of athletes and the people they care about, and we are constantly working to produce opportunities for improved athletic, personal and professional achievement by creating possibilities of mind/body performance that surpasses linear measurement. We look forward to sharing some of these opportunities and possibilities with you through our many networks, including this blog.
Please connect with us as we explore topics and the Axes perspective on topics including sport and life balance, the Axes definition of coaching (spoiler alert - it takes more than a certification), training strategies, the mental and physical aspects of racing, overall mental skills training and much more. We will connect with various coaches and experts in these and numerous other fields to dig into the coach and athlete experience in today’s endurance sport environment. We can’t wait to see where this will take us, and we are grateful that you are open to joining us on this adventure.
Thank you for visiting our blog and our site, and we look forward to connecting with you!
