Being a good athlete requires certain characteristics that will make him/her stand out from the crowd, all driven by a single objective: becoming the best. It’s important to embody the attitude that will lead you where you want. For this reason at Athletic Republic in Santa Ana, we would like to tell you about some of the most important features an athlete should have.


It’s very easy to blame others for adverse conditions, poor performance or other negative results. A true athlete takes responsibility for anything that happens and knows how to cope with adversities, and they are constantly analyzing their training or competition environment to learn how to improve it. ;


“There is no I in team” (unless you play an individual sport!). Being part of a team represents many things, and setting aside your own ego and needs is one of them. Remember that everyone in a team has a special role and everyone should fulfill it to achieve success. ;


You could be the fastest athlete, but if you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t go far. Confidence is based on hard work and it’s slowly achieved by conquering small and achievable objectives. Not being afraid of potential failure is important to maintain confidence. ;

These characteristics are essential and they don’t develop overnight; every athlete should work hard to gradually establish them in their life to achieve their goals. Also, don’t forget to read this previous post containing useful information on preparing for a competition. ;

At Athletic Republic, we know that you are always looking for ways to improve and smash your previous records. That’s why we developed scientifically-based programs that will help develop the skills you need. Think about us next time you are looking for sports training in Orange County. ;
