The most valuable characteristic of EaDo Elite is the emphasis placed on consistent, and sound mechanics. As athletes and competitors, it's easy to get caught up in the amount of weight on the bar or the speed of our movements compared to others. Our coaches have made sure each athlete moves consistently and efficiently, even if that means slowing us down.
The most respectable trait of the program is the personalized touch coaches have added to the programming. At the start of this season each athlete expressed their goals individually via email to the coaches. Then upon careful consideration, the coaches made specific recommendations and supplementation's that best suited each individual. While most programs are written for a generic population overlooking personal weaknesses, the programming for EaDo Elite allows everyone to work on their weakness and continue building on their strength.
Since the start, I have learned a lot about myself as an athlete, coach, and as a person. EaDo Elite has taught me, that I will have good days and I most certainly will have bad days. Some days lifting will feel amazing and everything goes right. Others, well, those days are ones you have to brush off and get back up (literally, sometimes).
I have learned that as a coach being a perfectionist isn't a bad thing. Perfect movement makes an athlete better. One small tweak in technique can improve that lift or movement ten fold. I have personally experienced the benefit of polishing technique, increasing the majority of my lifts.
Most importantly EaDo Elite has taught me that believing in yourself is the most important thing you can do. Believing that you CAN is often one of the biggest struggles. Sometimes it takes a minute to step back and celebrate the things that you have accomplished, in life or in the box. Whether it's a 5 lb PR, a stupid fast Fran, or driving in Houston without getting road rage, every victory is worth celebrating.
And the best part? The team will always have your back! I can't imagine not being a part of EaDo Elite.
