What makes A good prep coach a "good prep coach"? Is it how many contestants he is able to to help win competitions? Is it based on how many trophies he's gotten for his clients? Is it based on being readily available for his/her clients? After this past week, I can only give you MY own personal opinion on what I, myself feel makes A good prep coach, a GREAT prep coach! My coach Aj Sims, @simsolutions along with Nikki Sims @iamcoachnikki not only are incredibly available 24/7, w/biggest list of clients I've ever seen keep in mind, but far more importantly, give a crap about my health. Starting this past weekend and even through Yesterday, I started retaining water from the circulatory issue that flares up from time to time. I'm 9 weeks out from my comp, so you can imagine the frustration I was starting to feel in why would it start now?! AJ told me to immediately go find a publix and get my blood pressure checked. Then he told me to schedule an appointment with my doctor and see about the possibility of getting on blood pressure medication (I've had high blood pressure for the past 20 years, I thought I had a handle on it but apparently not, but DO NOW!)and then made me this ridiculously long laundry list of natural supplements that I could take that would help increase blood circulation. My ankles, feet,...basically my lower extremities, tend to get this flareup of water retention because I drive many hours a day selling capital medical equipment. But this time around with the flareup, we noticed it was hitting my upper body is well as you can see in this photo. It's not too noticeable because it was right around the time of this particular workout last night that I felt I was starting to drop some of the retention due to the supplements AJ suggested I take. All of these natural products I've never heard of that you could get at your basic vitamin Shoppe. He's also help me reduce my Hematocrit # from a 21.9 to a 14.5, which could've one day caused a serious health hazard for me, but we've got that under wraps now as well, where my doctor was even shocked! He's also helped my digestive problems. Cares about my health FIRST, competition 2nd.GREAT COACH!
