Why should I listen to you?
I was an athlete myself, for 15 years I struggled against my limited natural talent to breakthrough; to move from a good national level athlete onto the International scene. As a pole vaulter I represented Great Britain at age group and senior levels, but never made a senior major international championship. I finished 5th for Wales at both the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games, tied jointly with the same guy in both competitions (true fact!).
During this time I tried everything possible to improve in a systematic fashion. This is the distilled essence of my experiences combined with expert knowledge of those who have been around and seen far more than I ever will.
