THE PHYSICAL TRAINING WAS VERY, VERY VALUABLE. I WORKED HARD, HARDER THAN I EVER WOULD ON MY OWN.
I never would have attempted a cartwheel or handstand without Trevor’s confidence in me. My three-day program was a good balance between hard work and play, but the hard work was never out of reach, and I saw myself making gains. The simple act of seeing oneself perform the exercises on videotape was hugely instructive. But Trevor’s coaching while we looked together at the playback of our videoclips was golden. Trevor could point out our mistakes with his very trained eye and could even point to them with a magic marker.
THE COMBO OF LOOKING AT OUR OWN VIDEOS WITH TREVOR, WHILE HE GAVE US FEEDBACK AND HIS GENUINE INTEREST AND ENTHUSIASM MADE THE EXPERIENCE RICHLY INSTRUCTIVE AND MOVITATING.
The use of Slack was brilliant because it was a vehicle where all the athletes in the current cohort could send messages to each other, look at each other’s videos, make comparisons, admire and envy each other and generally have fun and get to know each other.
I ALWAYS FELT THAT WE WERE VALUED AND PART OF A LARGER COMMUNITY THAT JOSH AND TREVOR ARE BUILDING.
To keep this program going and building requires human qualities other than being good fitness trainers. These are the qualities of real interest in other people, their lives and their inner lives. I think this is their unique strength. They provided biweekly meetings, which gave us an opportunity to meet each other live/in-person and a chance to talk to each other about anything.
