Respect can mean different things to different people in any situation. Coach Nick Gounaris, the Combat Fitness Training Specialist for Headquarters Semper Fit and Recreation, talks about his perspective on respect as a strength and conditioning coach.
“As a strength and conditioning coach, I believe that respect is one of the most important parts of performance. For me, that concept has a lot of different forms.
Improving performance is about more than stats, figures, plans, times, and weights. I truly believe that when the athlete and I, as the coach, get to the point where we both have a healthy respect for all these factors, only then can we truly achieve our performance goals.”
