Thank you so much for your interest and commitment to work with me for our gruelling Row across the Atlantic.
To say we started off as a team of strangers and we only had one rower in our team, it was a huge challenge that we were setting out on that only a few people even attempt to do let alone complete the crossing. More people have been to space or have climbed Everest than have successfully rowed an ocean, and a third of the people that attempt it fail. Despite the challenges we were faced with suge as huge storms, sea sickness, sleep deprivation and equipment malfunctions, we are very proud to say that we achieved 2 World Records!
I believe that this was largely down to our team having a common goal with a desire to achieve. We were focused and pulled on each other's strengths as a team. We all shared a common attitude of positivity and we were extremely resourceful when we needed to solve problems. I personally wanted to be the strongest I've ever been both mentally and physically to ensure my performance within the team wouldn't let anyone down.
The biggest challenge was mental strength which, at times, was way more than the physical strength. We never considered giving up. This just wasn't an option. Sometimes the body wanted to but the power of our mental strength held us together physically for 45 days at sea rowing for 12hrs every day on a 2 hour shift system.
I felt mentally and physically prepared and this was down to training I did both physically and mentally. I cannot thank you enough for teaching me how to focus all positive energy towards our goals. You are one very talented lady and I will always remember the crucial role you played in our external team. I often say the preparation was the hardest part, getting to the start line, and you had a big role in preparing me personally for that. From this experience and your coaching I can now apply the same to my day to day living.
Thank you again. From one very grateful client, Katie xxx
