Jansen On Coaching: ‘The Sky Is The Limit’
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

Featured in the July/August 2017 issue of International Gymnast magazine, 11-time Norwegian national all-around champion Espen Jansen (pictured here giving a peptalk to his boys) is finding relatable tasks as coach of several promising young gymnasts at his club in Jessheim.

“One challenge is that all boys have individual personalities and need different approaches to training,” says Jansen, who competed into his 40s. “You need to get to know how to motivate each one, and how to get the best out of everybody. Another challenge is that, as a coach, you know how easy things are if you only do it correctly. But young boys do not always see that. Anyway, I really enjoy coaching and I like to see their development. The good thing with young boys is that they don't see any limitations, so the sky is the limit.”
