What is Skylakes Coaching?

The project, conceived by ASD Skylakes, aims to raise awareness among enthusiasts in the issues of nutrition, injury prevention and athletic training. Advanced athletes and newcomers have the opportunity to confront with a team of experts.

The goal is not only to improve athletic performance in the race but to achieve a 360 ° psycho-physical well-being.

What’s the Coaching?

Having a coach allows an athlete to increase their personal development and focus on a better strategy to achieve their goal.
The “coaching” is a partnership between the athlete and coach, using a creative process to stimulate reflection and helps the athlete to reach their maximum potential.
Thanks to the coach’s involvement, the athletes can learn and process the techniques and the action strategy that allows them to increase their performance and the quality of their life.

With coaching it is possible to define “where the athlete is today”, which is the starting point, and it will establish what the athlete is willing to do to reach “tomorrow’s goal” by determining the performance indicator.
Generally, the coaching processes starts with a one-to-one interview to determinate the athletes goals and personal challenges, to establish the purpose of the relationship, and to determine the priorities for action and establish the final result that the athlete wants to achieve.

The events which may affect the lifespan of the relationship are: the kind of results that the athlete wants to achieve, how the athlete or the team like to work, the frequency of the meetings
