What are You Doing When No One is Watching?

     "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard". One of the most cliché and used sayings in the game, but also one of the best! As an athlete what are you doing to separate yourself from your opponents? Are you the best player in your area..? That's great, but DON'T forget about that opponent from the next county or state that is working twice as hard as you are!

     What are you doing when no one is watching? Anyone can work hard at practice! The successful athletes are the ones who take it upon themselves to work on their own, not because they have to, but because they choose to. No matter what sport you play, at some point you will run into someone just as talented or more talented than you are. That is when the mental make up of an athlete kicks in and you either accept the challenge or you don't!

      Smoky Mountain Athletics is here to help you develop the work ethic that will ensure you do not get outworked. Take a look around our website for more information on how we can help yo or your athlete today! We have a variety of lesson options and other training options. We also offer a full weight room that is designed for the public (NOT JUST ATHLETES). 

     We would love to hear your thoughts on this saying as well... What does it mean to you? Do you believe it is true?
