4 Key Ingredients to Client and Athlete Success

An athlete’s triumph lies in more than just training inside the gym or following a routine.

After all, while many coaches take their clients and athletes follow specific training programs, not all of them achieve success on the field.

In that case, what separates good athletes from great ones?

What are the key factors that drive an athlete’s growth and development?

And how can coaches use those factors to ensure their athletes’ success?

In today’s episode, I share the four key ingredients necessary for ensuring your clients and athletes achieve success in and out of the gym. I explain how humility and communication skills can create the right training environment for athletes.

I illustrate how commitment to the process can lead an athlete toward success. And I also share my experiences of training with NBA professionals such as Roy Hibbert, Glenn Robinson, and Kelan Martin to illustrate how they achieved success in their careers.


Great coaches not only have vision. They also have the unique ability to instill that vision into their clients and athletes. – Mike Robertson
