Coaches on Couches Ep. 40 – Training Age and What It Should Say About Your Program

This episode could be bit of a controversial one. We will be chatting about what your training age (very different than you chronological age) should say about your training as a whole.

We’ll define training age, and talk about the different stages in an athletes journey, and how skipping a stage can affect an athlete‘s longevity, athletic potential, and enjoyment in their chosen sport.

As a brief, here are the stages we’ll discuss. Keep in mind, some athletes will never reach stage 4 or 5. That’s fine. But skipping any of the first 3 can have a negative impact on an athlete’s athletic or health potential.

Training Ages:

1. Learn to Train
2. Love to Train
3. Train to Improve
4. Train to Compete
5. Train to Excel (Win)
6. Train to Age Gracefully

Which stage are you on?
