With flexibility and strength basics under your belt, it's crucial to know how to get fundamental shaping, basics, and progressions to start things off right.

Lesson 5 - How to Be Happier at Work and Build High Performing Cultures

Without a great culture, and a sense of mission/purpose that drives motivation in coaches/athletes/parents, things fall apart. Learn from both my experiences and the research on how to love what you do, be motivated, and also get your gym to do the same. This way, you can build happy, healthy, high performing athletes and staff. 

So you want to help gymnasts gain flexibility, explosive power, and crush their goals? Awesome. Learning the essential gymnastics coaching principles is the best way to become the go to person for your gymnastics community.

But the process of where to start can feel daunting. What are the safest and most effective flexibility methods? What strength and conditioning exercises will get gymnasts more powerful? Should gymnasts lift weights? And if so where do I start? What are the best injury prevention and pre-hab strategies? How do you build a fun, yet high performing culture where athlete's are motivated?

I'm going to help you cut through the confusion - to not only learn proper, science based flexibility and strength techniques, but also help them sky rocket training so they can see performance boosts and you can be happier in your day to day life.
