The definition of evolve is...
Evolve - e·volve [ēˈvälv] 1. develop gradually, especially from a simple to a more complex form.
Throughout a career in sports, the goal is constant improvement and becoming a better player. One common saying that has been misunderstood is "practice makes perfect." In reality, it's "practice makes permanent." If you practice with improper techniques or develop bad habits, you hinder your ability to progress. Professionals in every sport achieve greatness by mastering their craft. The mantra is "Progression is Perfection." True improvement happens when you refine skills and techniques in every practice session, taking fundamental steps toward mastering your craft and evolving your game.
In all training sessions, the focus is on continual evolution and development. The emphasis is not merely on saying you worked out but on progressing with each workout. The goal is to evolve athletes by breaking down skill sets and imparting knowledge. The ultimate objective is to empower athletes to perform at their full potential, enabling them to reach their desired levels of success.
All training sessions focus on evolving and developing each and every time we workout. You never want to train just to say you worked out.
Focusing on evolving our athletes with the breakdown of skill sets and knowledge is the main goal. I want athletes to have the ability to perform at a high level at their full potential so they can reach whatever level of success they aspire towards.
