What services do you provide to sports moms and their young athletes?
I first got into training to be able to give our youth the maximum potential to achieve their goals in sports. Adding sport specific training to an athlete enable them to reach the highest level.
As a training specialist, what do you look for when assessing new clients/athletes?
I look at their feet I know it sounds funny but you can tell a lot about an athlete through their gate (how they walk, stand etc.)
How should parents support their young athletes when it comes to exercising and body conditioning?
When I’m talking to a parent about adding fitness to their son/daughter regime, I just say “look at LeBron James he doesn’t get injured very often compared to newer athletes”.
As a new and young athlete, it’s important to know the benefits of muscle protection, because building strong muscle protect to protect their bone and healthy growth is so much more than just being athletic it helps in school, slows the mind, and more many more benefits which I can go on on and on forever.
What are 3 things that parents can do to help their student athlete stay healthy on and off the court?
- Find a trainer that you trust
- Do your research make sure they know what they are teaching our youth
- Diet is key
