I recently read an article on Forbes.com about why companies should hire athletes. It explained our drive for success, our inclination to take the lead, our desire to work hard and our ability to balance multiple projects. What it didn't explain was where a lot of us got those skills from. The factor that really makes me and my peers such strong job candidates goes back to our ability to handle the student-athlete challenge early in life. From my experience, if you can discover the power to balance and stay afloat during your educational years, you can accomplish anything. Below are some of the best student-athlete strategies I learned along the way.

You’ve decided to seriously invest in your health and hire a personal trainer. It’s a great idea to have a dedicated fitness expert in your corner that can give you advice, keep you honest and produce results. Picking a trainer that can help you overcome your physical and emotional obstacles isn’t always easy. Be smart about your investment and take the time to choose your trainer wisely with these tips:
Do the research. Don’t settle for the first trainer you see when walking through the gym door. Chemistry, education and skill set is important. The trainer you choose should meet your needs in motivational style, training techniques and price. Referrals can be a good assessment of a trainer and always make sure they are certified by an National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCAA) accredited organization.
