Coaching Tip - Emmarie Fouche

Coaching is more than just a physical thing. I have a holistic approach to training and this includes the body, mind and spirit. If all three of the above components are on the same level, you will perform at your best.

If your mental state is not on par, then your physical performance will not be on point, and, if you are not spiritually strong, then both your physical and mental performances won’t be on the same level.

It is also very important that the coach knows the athlete and the sport e.g. If you want you want to teach Johnny ballet, then you have to know ballet and you MUST KNOW Johnny!

Each and every athlete is different so it’s important to treat every athlete according to their needs.
