3 Things I Would Tell High School Kids to IMPACT Their Life | IMPACT Q&A

I love working with people of all ages. Kids, adults, elite athletes, high-performers, and everyday fitness enthusiasts looking to get to the next level. I address 2 great questions today that I think you’re going to love, regardless of your age or background. The first one comes from standout coach and college professor, Leslie Cordova, Z-Health Performance, who asks, “If you could only tell the high school kids you train 3 things to impact their life, what would they be?”  And the 2nd question that is closely related comes from JT Sims as he asks, “How do you get the most out of the athletes you train?”

I believe my answer to these two great questions applies to most people yearning to get the most out of life. Tune in and find out what it takes to pull the best out of your SELF… and others! That’s IMPACT baby!
