Notes: Training environment is everything, it can make or break a session and/or an athlete. It's not about just having a place to "go hard" and and being continually congratulated for spewing your lunch, what I mean is a place that embraces and supports whatever the task is. They commend you for taking it easy when you know you need to, and cheer you on when you need to dig deep. A place that's worth its weight will be unafraid of telling its members the truth, harsh realities, or positive feedback when deserved.
