Training and the Student/Athlete
As a Personal Trainer and Coach I have seen the effects of our modern, easy lifestyle taking
its' toll on our health.
The incidence of over-weight and diabetes is effecting nearly 30% of the adult population.
Even more frightening is the rapid increase of same among pre-teens and teens.
The importance of physical activity
in attempting to control this near epidemic can't be overstated. Therefore the sports programs in the schools and in clubs
are a big part of that solution.
Teacher/Coaches are many times very restricted in the time they can spend with
their teams. Those that make a team and can continue to progress are those with inherent attributes.
But I am
concerned about the child who has the desire but needs just a few more tools to develop their potential to the fullest. Those
that do not may "drop out" of athletics and likely not return to an active lifestyle for 25 years, after they realize
some of the simplest tasks are becoming physically demanding!
Any school official, coach or parent group who
may be interested in this opportunity, should have them contact me. If you are a parent of a child seeking to build his/her
athletic skills, I would be delighted to speak to you also. I will travel to sites in a 15 mile radius around Antioch, California.
Strength & Conditioning for the School Distance Runner
With the Holiday school break
upon us come an opportunity for runners
in transition from Cross-country to the distance events in track, to
learn and apply specific
strength and conditioning techniques.
Come into the track season in good health, with strong
joints and excellent range of motion.
I am offering a group workshop
for any group of kids, 13 to 18, in the
Oakley, Antioch, Brentwood area.
It would be for 2 days with only a $10 fee.
Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays,
in late morning hours
would be available.
Any coach, A.D., teacher or parents should contact me via e-mail
