Most athletes have the desire to be bigger, faster, and stronger than their competition. Coaches are continually looking to push athletes to the next level, yet many don't understand the basic fundamentals of how to get an athlete there. Throughout my years in the fitness industry, I have come across a broad spectrum of coaches and athletes. In 22 years in this industry, I have only found a select few who understand what it takes for an athlete to get to the next level. Coaches and athletes alike, many are utilizing the ways of what was taught and/or coached many years ago. We live in a new … [Read more...] about Body Imbalances can affect speed and agility
Coaches want athletes to show up to practice as well as put in time in the gym to become bigger, faster, and stronger. The reality of the situation is that many athletes are limited in achieving optimal performance because they do not take the time to do things that help them recover like stretching. I have seen many athletes be consistent in their efforts at practice and in the gym and all of a sudden succumb to an injury. I have heard of many stories from parents and athletes in which when they show up to practice there is little to no warm-up prior to starting on the field. Many coaches … [Read more...] about Flexibility: The Key to a Healthy Athlete

The entire country has been shut down with 90 percent of businesses closed and unemployment at an all time high. As most Americans have dipped into whatever savings they may have to try to continue their normal life, the shutdown remains. It has now been almost 3 months the entire country has come to a screeching halt.

Being an individual in the fitness industry for the last 21 years, I have seen a fair share of athletes from 6 years old to professional athletes. It's interesting because I am seeing more and more coaches who are improperly educating their athletes. Coaches who are of the older generation are still doing the same techniques and drills that they were taught 40 years ago. This is mind-boggling because with all the information we now have at our fingertips, I cannot understand why coaches haven't started educating themselves on the new science and techniques that are available. I still hear … [Read more...] about Coaches: What are you teaching your athletes?
