Strength Coach Creed

I am a huge fan of Mike Boyle, who recently posted this on his blog, courtesy of Anthony Donskov and I wanted to share it with all of you:

I am a strength and conditioning coach, not a cheerleader, rep counter, weight loader, scientist or lab technician. I am a motivator, not a babysitter, amateur psychologist, or boot camp instructor. I will not treat all athletes the same! I will treat athletes the way they deserve to be treated. I believe in determination, sacrifice, attention to detail, respect for those that have walked before me, passion, team spirit, and good old-fashioned sweat and hard work. Lou Holtz once said: "No one has ever drowned in sweat." I believe there are NO limits to greatness: no ceiling or rooftop. "I believe that personal greatness is measured against ones own potential, not against someone else on the team or elsewhere" (Coach Wooden). I am not a fad, fashion, or preacher. I am an educator, teacher, and role model. I am a Coach!
