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, however, many times very restricted in the time they can
spend with their teams. Those kids 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 who may be interested in learning more about Runfitter Training to contact me. If you
have a student seeking to build his/her athletic skills, I would be delighted to speak to you also. I will travel to sites
in a 20 mile radius around Antioch, California.
