Before becoming a better student-athlete, it is important to make an honest decision to achieve a goal. With determination comes mental toughness, and with mental toughness comes success.
Strength training requires student-athletes to fully commit themselves toward achieving a goal. It is the responsibility of student-athletes and coaches to approach each day with a purpose towards achieving the goal of improvement, not only as a team but also as an individual.
It is essential for student-athletes to possess a strong work ethic, self-discipline, and humility in order to succeed in their sport as well as in life. Student-athletes can develop these qualities by learning what it takes to be a Champion.
