Why an Integrated Approach?
Athletes Are Human Beings (not human doings)
I was the kid who challenged adults. Reports from my primary school teachers were always mixed. I was academically and intellectually excellent, yet often spoke out of turn, talked too much, wiggled a lot, and frequently distracted my classmates. My analytical and highly inquisitive brain brought my thought process to the next level a bit faster than others. After an introduction to an interesting, new subject or topic, I quickly sought information that was a few grade levels above the lessons we were being taught. While sometimes interpreted as a challenge to authority, it was never my intention to disrespect my teachers, instructors, coaches, or adult relatives. I simply wanted to know. As I continue to grow up, that has not changed. My mind stretches to know.
Not just intellectually, I also wanted to learn how to do things, especially physical activities. My young parents were physically active and took us kids along for all recreational activities. I accepted every opportunity to participate in sporting activities - from swim lessons to softball, water-skiing, gymnastics, downhill skiing, rollerblading, etc.. Throughout my adolescence as my body was physically growing and physiologically maturing, I had aches, pains and a few injuries. Some of those complaints led to the doctor’s office where I was frequently disappointed to learn that it was growing pains or that it would eventually heal, just be careful. There had to be more or better or practical solutions or at least recommendations. After two foot fractures in two consecutive high-school gymnastics seasons, (subsequently impacting my ski season), I decided I could offer more than I had received from the medical system. So I went to college to study biology in the Pre-Med program.
