Core Athletic: Steve Redmond 8/11
By Steve Redmond, CSCS, Core Athletic Director of Sports Performance
I wanted to take a break from the “Psychological Profile of a Champion” and go in a different direction. I wanted to highlight a concept that is the foundation of my sports performance program I direct at Core Athletic but more so a concept that changed my life. My program is called The No Excuses Program and although there may be thousands of references to the catch phrase “No Excuses,” I chose to call my program this for a much more simple purpose: It is the undeniable truth.
I did not choose the name because it was cool or because it would give me the platform to be a “tough” coach. The No Excuses mentality changed me to the core of who I am and although I was exposed to it in a sports environment, it is something that I carry with me every day of my life…in every situation…in every aspect of my life. Regardless, if it is a work, family, or personal matter, I choose every day to take a No Excuses approach to the things I do and as a coach/teacher of young people that range from elementary age to college I expose and challenge them to do the same thing.
The statement below is not mine. I’m not 100 percent sure who’s it is but it is powerful and should be shared with every person that is striving to be successful, athletes and non – athletes alike. It is something that I believe in and share any opportunity I can. I have a desire to build powerful individuals, not just athletes, both mentally and physically and this is where I start. I have left my email below for anyone who like more information about this. Enjoy!
