How We Do It!
Knowledge, Understanding & Experience
Since 2008, we have coached proper bio-mechanics to over 2000 athletes in freestyle swimming, cycling, and running, increasing their efficiency and speed while decreasing any chance of injury. In addition, we are experts in all aspects of the strength, flexibility and mobility work that goes along with those activities.
We utilize video tape analysis software when coaching. Video tape analysis allows the better communication between the athlete and coach, allows the athlete to see what needs to be corrected, increases the motivation of the athlete when they see and feel their technique improving and speeds up the learning curve.
In addition to video analysis, we are experts in utilizing metronomes. Metronomes aid tremendously in technique corrections as it takes the guesswork out of any timing issues and make the athlete’s movements precise and symmetrical.
Deliberate Practice & Kaizan
Our athletes don’t “train” hard….they “practice” very deliberately! Have you ever heard of a dancer, musician or yoga practitioner training hard? No! They practice their art. Many athletes train hard year after year and never get any better or faster because they are focused on pure strength and not critically analyzing their technique. This creates frustration, decreases the athlete’s motivation and an increases the chance of injury. This is especially true with older athletes who are not as strong as they once were and are on their biological downslope. We create a paradigm shift in these athletes thinking about how to get better and faster using the least amount of energy, not the most amount. This shift in thinking allows all athletes to continually improve for many years.
Kaizan: The Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement of efficiency and speed through mindful and deliberate practice.
We will provide the absolute best bio-mechanic coaching to single and multi-sport athletes. We will always be perennial students of sport, movement, technology and coaching, never settling or stagnating. Our goals are to not only develop more skilled athletes, but smarter athletes, allowing them to critically analysis themselves with the knowledge they acquire with us. Lastly, we want every athlete that has ever been coached by us to walk away with an incredible learning experience, never forgetting who taught them their new founded technique.
