When I suffered an injury, I honestly thought that my involvement in sports was over. I knew that I would never be the same as I was, and that turned out to be true, but in ways that I never expected. I knew that I had to allow my body to fully recover before I began trying to get back in the swing of things. I also knew that I would need help once that point came. That is why I wanted to hire a Denver strength and conditioning coach to help get me back on track as much as possible.
I knew that I could train on my own, but I also knew that I was not going to be able to push myself the way I needed to be if I was going to get back into the game. I had heard good things about the Landow Performance training center, and I decided to find a personal trainer there to help me. I admit that I was afraid, but not of the hard work. Any athlete is already used to that, and I was actually looking forward to that. What I was afraid of was failure to return to where I was.
Thankfully, the personal trainer that I had at Landow Performance did not allow my mental fears turn into physical road blocks. I was given a schedule that made me focus just on getting back to where I was, but something amazing happened. That was the first time I had ever used a professional trainer rather than a team trainer, and I found myself doing things I had not been able to do even before the injury. I was pushing my body to the limits, and I was winning. I did not return to where I was. Instead, I am further now than I have ever been before.
