This last week was mixed with some really cool opportunities. Somedays I feel like I am all over the place with so many new ideas and exciting things that I want to dive right into. I guess that is way better than not knowing what to do and not being super busy!! On top of my “want to try” list was coaching gymnastics. Don’t get my wrong, I do LOVE coaching triathlon, but gymnastics is also so near and dear to my heart. It was my life for 16 years! I lived in the gym, starting with 20 hours a week for years to 40 hours a week for the last 6 years. And back then I LOVED it. Now, you wouldn’t catch me ever trying that many hours for triathlon again. That spells injury! for me at least! Been there done that!
I had a unique opportunity to coach at a gym where my ex coach’s wife is the head coach. I also have some friends who have daughters that attend this gym and they have been trying to get me to coach for years. I finally gave in and made my way over to the gym and had a long chat with my friend, the head coach. I started that day and shadowed with her through an entire practice. It was during that practice where I saw myself all over again as a little girl aspiring to become an Olympian. It brought chills and tears to my eyes. At that moment I just knew I needed to be there to help these young girls achieve their dreams. It was an amazing feeling to go back to that place in my mind and remember exactly what went through my mind at least at one point during every grueling practice. I coached three days last week and loved every second. The girls are so sweet and so willing to learn. They soak in every piece of information I give them and I see the desire to succeed in their eyes.
I was lucky that not only did coaching gymnastics make me smile all week long, I was invited by TRX to take an 8 hour long certification class yesterday in San Francisco. I was so excited for the invitation. We actually practiced on the TRX suspension training systems all day long. It was amazing, I learned so much and even got to demonstrate for the class, some fun and super tough gymnastics moves using the TRX So now I am officially a TRX trainer. Woohoo…..Can’t wait to help others discover the most amazing total body workout system. I am a huge believer. I think everyone should own a TRX.
