Kylie was one of my coaching clients. She was an elite rower, but had lost all motivation to row, or even train. She was feeling overwhelmed at work and starting to exhibit signs of burnout and depression. She knew that physical exercise was good for depression (there is loads of research to support this) and was forcing herself to go to the gym, lift weights and struggle through an ergo a few times a week. She wanted to lose weight so she didn’t let the team down. But she hated every minute of it. And hated herself even more for not doing it.
