Heart-Centered Coaching NBA Athletes with Mike Guevara

Coaches, it is my pleasure and my privilege to introduce you to the passionate and kind-hearted Mike Guevara. Coach Mike G serves the competitive playing field that is the NBA. During our conversation, he dives into his athletic background and experience moving into the world of professional sports. If I've got any aspiring pro basketball players listening, then this episode is definitely for you because Mike and I discuss the process of being drafted into the NBA.

Coach Mike G exudes qualities that all great personal trainers should have: compassion, kindness, and overall caring nature. During our talk, he talks to me about client-trainer relationships and how things such as trust and compliance need to be earned. It is important to meet your clients where they are at when they are celebrating and in pain.

We also went into early specialization and accessibility. We all know that not every one has access to high-level sports clubs and teams growing up. Mike and I talk about how someone can be resourceful getting their younger athletes beneficial training and inspire their kids to be the best athletes and people they can be.

In this episode, Mike and I discuss:
- How proper training makes a true impact...which includes properly preparing your own child in grade school sports.
- Compliance, trust, and the importance of interpersonal communication.
- Why you should not do personal training solely for money.

Don't forget to sign up for my upcoming free live trainingFitBiz Bootcamp. The training begins on January 3rd. Join me, and learn to master the same pillars of performance that have helped me and my clients generate consistent $10k-$40k months.

About Today's Guest

Mike Guevara started coaching in the performance field in 2008. Upon graduating from Cal State Northridge with a B.S. in Exercise Science in 2010, he worked as a performance intern and ultimately a coach at The Factory Training for 5 years. He was then offered ownership and served as Director of Performance at The Factory Training where he oversaw and serviced multiple NFL, NBA, and MLB athletes along with youth, high school, and college athletes.

In late 2011 to 2013, Mike received an opportunity to work and travel with Belarusian pro tennis player Victória Azárenka as her personal Performance Coach. After 2 1/2 years, Victória captured 51 weeks of a world #1 ranking and two Australian Open Titles among many other career accomplishments. He was asked to return to the team in Jan 2016 and helped her achieve the “Sunshine Double” which only two other woman in WTA history was able to achieve. After owning the Factory, he moved on to become Jrue Holiday of the New Orleans Pelicans full-time performance coach and has since then worked with multiple NBA athletes including Anthony Davis, Jahlil Okafor, Mike James, Spencer Dinwiddie, Evan Fournier, and Rajon Rondo to name a few. Coach Mike G continues to strive daily to make people and coaches as great as they choose to be.
