My Coaching Philosophies

  1. Do everything with 100% effort.
  2. If you are unsure of instructions, ask questions.
  3. Being strong does not make you a good athlete. Movement is key. If an athlete cannot control their body and perform basic athletic movements, they will struggle with everything else.
  4. Flexibility is just as important as movement. If an athlete is not flexible in their major joints, they will lack in their movement efficiency.
  5. Every athlete should be able to perform basic bodyweight exercises before moving to free-weight exercises.
  6. Whenever a coach is talking, LISTEN. Whatever they are saying is probably important.
  7. As a coach, it is important to NEVER STOP COACHING. Always give the correct cues until an athlete gets the movement/exercise 100% right, 100% of the time.
  8. Never let an athlete slack on their form/effort. Demand the best. If your athletes want to be the best, they must train like the best.

These Philosophies are subject to change. Every strength coach, whether old or new, should always be learning and finding new and improved ways of doing things.
