Carlette PattersonWhat makes a great athlete? Training. What makes a great person? Training.
"As a retired athlete, I have been successful in my adult life because of the tools and training I mastered as an athlete. I learned the power of self-discipline, commitment, determination, perseverance, and the ability to push beyond my perceived mental and physical limitations. I had no idea that at the age of eight when I chose to join a swim team, it would be the beginning of a life journey that led to my life purpose.
Initially I thought my life purpose was to coach athletes, but when my first daughter was born, with a disability, I found new meaning in perseverance and determination. Life continued; two more fabulous daughters arrived. And then abruptly, nine years ago, my husband was diagnosed with cancer and died 28 days later. What I thought was "Game Over" has become "Coaching 4 Significance" and has led me to launch the Life Training Academy."

What is the Life Training Academy? The Academy trains you to find joy, significance, and purpose in this journey we call life. I have taken all that I have learned in my 40 years of sports and life experiences to create "Sports Life Coaching" courses, workshops, and classes. Sports Life Coaching is not just for athletes and teams; it is for anyone who has a desire to train for a life on purpose. If you have never been an athlete or if you have been involved in sports your entire life, the Life Training Academy will introduce you to the power of training "4 significance" and equip you with the tools need to overcome life's toughest challenges.

Thank you for wanting more out of your life and taking the time to search for how to do it. It would be an honor to coach and train you to be a champion in your life "4 significance." I look forward to seeing you at the Academy!
