What is Objective-X Coaching?
in 1 minute …
The fitter we are the more we can do and the more we can enjoy this world, and achieve incredible things. ObjectiveX uses expert coaching to help you to reach your potential on expeditions around the world. The coaching is individually built around you, your lifestyle, and your ambitions. A completely tailored approach.
Objective-X specialises in training you for remote and extreme environments. By using our very own Athlete Interface and Fatigue Index tools, along with daily interaction with your coach you will know when to rest and when to work hard without becoming too drained. This makes all your training much more efficient in the time that you have. All our coaching is based on sound scientific principles and we do not submit to the “flavour of the month” fads.
The tailored approach means that you will be coached through your physical training while also being psychologically trained to succeed. This begins with the construction of your psychometric profile when you begin your coaching. This psychological element of your training makes you more robust when it comes to your final objective, and much more likely to succeed.
There are no short cuts to success but with coaching your way will be the most direct and efficient.Coaching
Why use Objective-X coaching?
When venturing in to dangerous environments we spend thousands on kit. We buy the lightest, best designed equipment which has been developed especially for one purpose. Our body needs to be treated the same. Built to perform as well as possible in a dangerous environment. This is the difference between success and failure when facing the extremes. It can even be the difference between life and death. Some extraordinary achievements have occurred without the best equipment and the reason for this is simple: success is driven by the individual. You are your body. You are your mind. And both body and mind can be developed.
