Do you lead with confidence when you coach?

Ask anyone involved in endurance sports what the most important attribute in a coach is, and you will receive a different answer every time. Is it the ability to coach with conviction? Is it incorporating your experience into your coaching? Is it motivating your athletes to simply adhere to their training plan? According to Coach Ben Day, it’s a mix of all of these and more.

Dave Schell sits down with Coach Ben Day to discuss how his experience as a professional cyclist has influenced the way he now leads other athletes. Day has worked professionally in cycling since 2002 and began coaching full-time in 2014 after retiring as an athlete. Since then, Day has coached many successful cyclists and triathletes and influenced countless coaches along the way.
