Sports coaches undertake the training of teams or individuals in order to improve their technique and fitness in a particular sport or activity. After assessing the athletes' technique and fitness level, coaches set goals and use the appropriate means and methods to fulfill them. Testing the athletes is another aspect of their work. They can work as freelancers or as employees in sports clubs, teams, gyms, private schools and camps.
