Deliverables, Expectations & Contract This coach-athlete engagement is a relationship. The process should be fun, challenging, and fulfilling. As a coach, I may not always be your best friend, but I will be honest. I buid my practice on sound principles applied to real life testing, experience and results. With that said, there are many scientific principles that I believe are yet to be discovered or changed, so my intention is to maintain a progressive and open-minded approach, so you, as the athlete, have the chance to benefit with progressing knowledge. I will strive to stay on forefront of the coaching industry through scientific reading, continuing education, projects, and publishing articles/contributions. If you have a concept or method of question; bring it to me and I will do my best to research the topic for efficacy in our process. If I don’t know something, I will disclose that, but I will always perform due diligence to investigate.
PED (performance enhancing drugs) disclosure: I have a NO TOLERANCE policy for illegal methods of performance enhancing drugs. Period! If you choose to go down this path for whatever reason, I DO NOT support it and ask you kindly inform me our coaching relationship is over. If you choose to go down this path and choose to not inform me, but I find out; I demand these 3 items when it is out in the open; 1) a written statement that can and will be stated publicly and socially stating these decisions were of your own and not under my guidance or recommendation, that I stated in-advance my policy and you willingly were dishonest, and apologize to ME for any harm or connnection associated with the dishonesty; 2) your agreement to cover any legal fees ME incurs to deal with repercussions of the dishonesty, including but not limited to social media, clearing up bad press, legal fees, etc.; 3) full payment to the end of our agreed coaching term while surrending your priveleges to any coaching services.
Contract term: ME does not employ rigid contract terms, but operate on an honesty system. If we establish a set time agreement, we both should strive to fulfill that agreement. Please understand coaching as a business means variable income and as I try to provide the best service to each athlete, I don’t carry excess clients , so abrupt losses put undue stress. I ask you to provide a 45 days notice if you plan to end your coaching relationship, change your agreement, or request a lapse in service/hold. I am willing to work with you if something comes up medically, family, or unknown to you; so please I just ask for honesty in advance.
Social media: ME benefits from positive posts on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google, etc. If you have something genuine to state about what we do; please tag me in a post. If you don’t like something we do, please contact me directly as I’d like the chance to address it. We both make one another better! If you wish to keep your interaction with ME confidential, please inform me. Twitter @MathenyCoaching @danielmatheny, www.facebook.com/MathenyEndurance, Instagram daniel.matheny
