Some of you may know one of the hats I wear outside of the gym is that of a Commissioner in the City of Glendale. I serve on the Audit Committee, which has the responsibility of overseeing the audit function of the City of Glendale. I am also a voracious reader and I love a grood CrossFit blog. So I was especially excited to see one of our good friends, Logan Gelbrich, write a blog on auditing within the context of coaching. Read below and check out their site here for some great supplemental reading:
Cue the suspenseful music. Athletes, there are eyes on you. Sometimes as a coach, or even just as an observer, I like to get “inside” students’ workouts. I’ll join them for a round or two, and count reps with them. It’s here that I can see when they choose to break, I can see their thought process in their movement and body language, and sometimes (unfortunately) it makes me a silent auditor.
Nothing hurts my heart more than an athlete that chooses to cut rep counts short, and like watching a train crash I can’t erase it from my memory. Guys and girls, if we don’t have our word then what do we have? If the integrity of the numbers in our training slip just a bit, then there’s no meaning in any of them. So, what are we doing here?
If you haven’t the diligence to hold yourself to the standard. Let the thought of another set of eye balls on you motivate you. Beware of the auditor.
