5. Work With A Coach
Unless you happen to be degreed and credentialed in the sport or activity you’re pursuing, chances are you don’t know all you need to know. It’s a tough pill to swallow, especially if you think you have a good understanding of health and fitness, but consider getting a coach.
Coaches don’t come cheap, but they can help you identify areas of weakness, pre-plan your workouts and progressions, and keep you accountable. Best of all, they can teach you concepts and skills you don’t already know. Even if you don’t employ a coach forever, it’s never a bad idea to enlist one every now and then to keep you on track and moving forward.
