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 basketball 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)

Mr. Lawrence has been training my son for several months and the change in my son is incredible. In such a short time my son has re-built his confidence within himself, he connected with Larry very quickly and is comfortable with him as a coach.

I recommend Larry to anyone looking to get their child to that next level in their sports.
