My workouts consistently start off with stretching and footwork as it is the most crucial part of the workout. (Dynamic Stretching, Bands, ladders, abdominal work, etc.)
My workouts vary from the Type of Workout to the athlete themselves. During the first session, athletes will go through vigorous physical drills and tests where they will be assessed. Through Assessment of athletic ability and position they intend on playing , we will create a specified workout tailored to the athletes strengths and weaknesses to take their game to the next level!
