Friendly competition is a great way to connect with people!
How are you encouraging friendly competition in your community?
Do you write scores on a Whiteboard?
Do you encourage athletes to enter scores in an app or platform?
Do you start discussions with athletes post WOD about strategy and how the workout felt?
One of the best community builders is sweaty, out of breath people rolling around on the gym floor discussing “How far did you get in the workout?”
As coaches, it is super important for us to set the tone around competition in class. Competition is a great motivator and talking point so long as it’s friendly.
