As a Coach, I draw on my experience as a gymnast the most. Skills from my time on the swimming/diving team and years on wrestling mats play a part, but less often. There are also a lot of similarities in training, specifically conditioning, that I am able to bring to the box from my time training BJJ.
My "Turning Point" as it relates to fitness is not so much a single point but the constant reminder that things go better when I prioritize my health. When I am consistent with making it to the WOD, healthy fueling, and smart recovery, I see the benefit in all facets of my life.
The thing that motivates me most as a Coach is the athletes. I enjoy being a part of taking an athlete from "I can't" to "I do" with the skills and movements that were challenging or even thought impossible.
