My personal believe and part of my personal coaching philosophy is that “Coaching is all about the athlete”.

I consider that my role as a sports coach is to help the athlete fulfill his sports vision and as a consequence to that to improve skills, become happier and more complete person.

In order that the athlete achieve his dreams and develop as an athlete and as a person, I need to get rid of my ego and understand that at this procedure I have always to be humble, try to listen more effectively and increase my emotional intelligence.

Athlete – centered is the athletes orientation approach that sometimes is even described as customer orientation.

The coach owns to have out of the window approach and be able to adapt his coaching approach to the real needs of the athlete.
