30% Feedback Rule

Our clients are Athletes, FIT Athletes to be specific. And therefore, when we coach, we treat them as such. Not someone who isn’t just showing up to the gym so they can say they have a trainer. Nor someone who trains at the gym to show off their guns to the ladies hoping for someone […]

Build Up Your Brakes After Lacing Up Your Kicks!

If your training place (the 3rd place) is the gym: meaning you love basketball, racquetball, pickleball, volleyball, basically anything with a ball, read on! Often times practice that used to happen, doesn’t anymore. And warm ups that used to be extensive and sweat inducing are short and maybe involve some toe touches and side bends […]
