How To Be Coachable

In our 20 years of working with athletes, we always notice that some athletes get more out of their coaching than others. And it’s not usually about which athlete has the most time to train or the most talent. Instead, there’s a variety of attributes that combine to make an athlete coachable, and the more an athlete is coachable, the more time a coach has to dedicate to the most important aspects of making the athlete faster.


So what does it take to be coachable? What are the attributes you need to ensure you are getting the most out of your coaching? What mistakes do you need to avoid to make coaching you easier for your coach? We answer all these questions for you in this episode of the FasCat Coaching podcast. Coach Frank and Coach Christian dive into their coaching guidelines and explain why it’s so important to follow them if you want to get the most out of your coaching.
