I will cater my client sessions to their needs and goals.

For a hypothetical client with their goal to become faster, bigger and stronger for their upcoming football season, a session may look something like this:

Dynamic Warm-up (10-15 minutes)
- Focusing on mobility and injury prevention by using various tools including foam rollers (to massage and get blood flowing through the muscles)
- Generalized warm-up (jogging), and dynamic stretching exercises. Some dynamic exercises would include inch-worms (helping to stretch and activate our calves and hamstring/IT bands: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z19gpqxQBwo), T arm swings (activating pectoral and shoulder muscles https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1nq6PQahP8), Spider-Man (activating hips and shoulder: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCCyBaxKJeA), donkey kick and fire hydrant (activating glutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emSfXrFmXH8), etc.

Speed and agility drills (15 - 20 minutes)
- Using an agility ladder, some of the drills will include forward sprint, lateral high knees, icky shuffle, backward icky shuffle, lateral in and out, forward in and out, backward in and out, lateral scissor hops, cross behind, single leg hops, slalom jumps, single leg lateral in and out, and lateral jump lunge
- Utilizing resistance bands for short bursts (5 to 10 yards) focusing on acceleration, proper running mechanics for sprinting, backpedaling, and shuffling
- Implementing cones to work on lateral movement doing drills such as 5-10-5 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGhSEpKhve0), or the L drill (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fonysni1wj4)

Strength training (15-20 minutes if we have access to a gym)
- Exercises will vary, but may include...
- medicine ball tosses
- hang cleans
- snatches
- bench press
- squats
- hamstring partner curls
- lunges

Athletic Development Sport Specific Drills (15 - 30 minutes)
- Work on stance & starts
- Understand "keys" for position and processing information
- Help with clues on how to read the quarterback (high shoulder tilt, which is more likely to be a long pass vs. low - quick pass)
- Ball drills and developing hand-eye coordination

Coach Larry was great! My son enjoyed working with him! We plan on continuing to work with him!

Had my first session today and it awesome- surpassed my expectations and was totally fun.

My son Cooper was very happy after his session with Coach Larry. He was able to give Cooper great feedback and also provided instruction on playing his position that he was unaware of. The coach was friendly, punctual and very accommodating. Would highly recommend!!

Coach Lawrence possesses every quality you'd want in a great coach.My son loves working with him every week. I see improvements in my son's speed and agility as well as throwing and catching the ball. I would highly recommend coach Larry!

Great coach. Related well with my 9 year old. His catching and throwing skills made nice improvements after just one session
