For best results, I recommend once to twice weekly coaching sessions {practice year around for consistency is the key}!

• All American Football and Track and Field, high school
• Ranked #1 in the Nation - Shot Put event in 1982, high school
• Still ranked as the Texas All Time Top 10 Best in Shot Put event for over 38 years now
• Southwest Conference Champion Outdoor Shot Put, Baylor University
• Southwest Conference Outdoor Second Place Shot Put, Baylor University
• Southwest Conference Indoor Second Place Shot Put, Baylor University
• Southwest Conference Secord Place Discus, Baylor University
• NCAA Third Place Outdoor Shot Put, Baylor University
• Baylor University Field Athlete of the Year, Track & Field in 1987
• Baylor University Indoor and Outdoor Record Holder Shot Put, 31-year-old record
• Olympic Qualifier Outdoor Shot Put in 1988

My coaching strategy is very simple. During my private session and camps, my athletes will experience drills, exercises, and a lot of ring work to help them learn the techniques of shot put and discus events. I will also show them what a throwers’ workout should look like, provide an understanding of the sport, and focus on their journey to becoming a great competitor and student athlete.
I am looking for athletes and parents who understand that the shot put and discus are very difficult events to master. The technique is unique, so you must be willing to commit to practicing and training year round. I believe mastery is a combination of 70% technique and 30% talent & desire to compete. As a part of my services, I will include a workout plan to enhance their bodies for all overall performance (power, speed, quickness and endurance) which will help them to master the techniques of both events.
So, if you really believe in your athlete and want them to get to the next level, then I am the coach for you. I take my work very sincerely and I am willing to go over and beyond to get them to the next level. Winning is what I believe in.
My ultimate goal is to assist your athlete with achieving a track & field athletic scholarship. Imagine being able to send your child to an institution of higher education without the financial burden of tuition. As a father myself, I want the best for my child and I know you do as well. Mastery of the shot put and discus could be a means to a wonderful end.
In closing, I recommend you choose your package of choice wisely to ensure maximum benefit for your athlete and your investment. Consistent training is required for mastery – extended gaps between sessions will delay success and movement to the next level. Consistency is the key!

Effective Immediately:
A 24 hours' notice is required to cancel your practice session, or a charge will incur.

All practice sessions canceled prior to the 24-hour cut off will be rescheduled at no charge.

Moving forward, time slots cannot be held without a paid session, (i.e., you must have a paid session available to book or hold and time slot).

I appreciate your cooperation with these changes.

Coach Lewis is terrific. His coaching made an excellent impact after only one lesson.

Coach Marvin Lewis is such a phenomenal coach! I wasn't sure how my daughter would learn being coached using Zoom, but Coach Lewis mastered it! My daughter had to unlearn some bad habits stifling her distance. Coach Lewis studied her throw from a video I sent and knew exactly what was needed to improve her throw. He retrained her brain by patiently coaching her and motivating her beyond what she thought she could do. I recommend Coach Lewis to any parent who is frustrated with their child's progress and wants a coach who is passionate about the sport and works with you to get results.

Coach Marvin has been a hell of a coach and mentor to my son OVER ZOOM. I was initially skeptical about how you can coach throwing shot put via Zoom, but he breaks it down and makes it easy for our son to work on his technique in simple and compartmentalized steps. Most importantly, he is a clear and honest communicator, offering realistic feedback and telling my son, wife, and me the truth about progress and potential. I can't ask much more than that. He will be our son's virtual coach for a long-time to come.

Coach Lewis is a great coach. My Daughter has only been working with Coach Lewis for a month and has shown great improvement.

Coach Marvin is great. Very knowledgeable and great with younger athletes. Very patient and a great communicator.

Coach Lewis is awesome and really takes the time to help athletes achieve their goals.

Coach Marvin was great with our son! As a new enthusiastic throwing athlete, Coach really taught him the foundational techniques that have improved his skills and has given him a plan forward.

Coach Lewis is top notch.. I’m just two sessions my daughter has improved her personal record by 6 feet.

Coach Lewis is great working with our son

Our son had his first training with Coach Lewis this week and already learned so much! Looking forward to him continuing to work with Coach Lewis and develop his throwing skills.

Coach Lewis is one of the most patient coaches that I’ve ever been around. Although he is patient he is also very persistent at the same time. Coach Lewis insist on getting every step correct before moving on. In just one session my granddaughter went from 70 to 80 feet. Update after another 3 sessions and 1 month after hitting 80 feet Emeri hit a PR of 95.2 and shattered the old school record by 15 feet. Thank you Coach Lewis.

John R

Coach Marvin was informative and engaging. All questions were clearly answered. He provided a comprehensive overview of his approach to training.

Great methodology and personality for working with first time throwers!

Our first lesson with Coach Lewis was very beneficial. We are beginners and he broke it down step by step so that our daughter starts out with good form. He sent videos so she can continue working until we meet up again for our next lesson.

Coach Lewis is absolutely wonderful. He has not helped my son improve his skill and technique but has had an impact on his overall development as an athlete. My son has improved his PR by more than 10ft in discus in just 2 months!

Awesome experience with Coach Marvin, very detailed and patient. Can't wait for the next sessions with my daughter

Great experience with Coach Lewis! My son is excited for his next practice.

Coach Lewis has been great! I appreciate the one on one session with my son. He is learning technique and is excited to practice on his own.

Great first lesson. Detailed in his instructions. Looking forward to more! My son has gotten better since his first training session. The next sessions went more in depth and my son is doing really well. We’re looking forward to the next sessions!

Although distance separate us from the coach, we were able to get in a very good lesson through zoom. My son is looking forward to his next lesson.

Great experience, very knowledgeable and great with athletes

Coach Lewis has been great at teaching our 12 year old daughter disc & shot! She placed 1st in both events in 6th grade & now loves track! She is now competing in Summer Track & we look forward to more growth & support from coach Lewis! Her first meet she threw 29 feet 7 inches in shot & 60 feet 7.5 inches in disc!! She is learning proper technique & form which will allow future growth!!

Seeing immediate improvement with my son's throws and technique during same session. The man is patient.....much appreciated.

Coach Marvin has a great demeanor to work with young people. Patient. Knowledgeable. I enjoyed the learning one piece at a time.

He is a great coach! We travel 2 hours for the training and its well worth it. We have already seen improvement in our sons throws.

In just two sessions, my 7th grade son learned the basics of discus and was able to win his school meet by over 10 ft. Thanks Coach Marvin!

He is great!!

Coach Lewis is very knowledgeable and provides great technique for shot and discus. He gives my daughter great insight and she appreciates his advice knowing he himself threw in school and was a qualifying Olympian. She feels he knows exactly how she feels and what she needs to get her to the next level! If you or your child are interested in getting to the next level with shot or discus I would recommend Coach Lewis he will get you where you need to be!

Great coach

Coach Marvin is always patient with my daughter. He has great knowledge in throwing events. My daughter enjoys going and learning with Coach. I highly recommend Coach Marvin.

Coach Marvin is a wonderful coach. My son loves working out with him. He is very professional and goes above and beyond in his training. My son performance have improved tremendously. Thank you Coach Marvin for all that you have done for my son.

Coach Marvin was great. He was patient and enthusiastic. He took the time to break down everything he was teaching and explained why.

We have really enjoyed our experience with Coach Marvin over the last few months. He goes above and beyond just coaching, and at this point he is more like family. He and my son are, in a word " tight ". We are now heading to regionals in Waco next week. If you are looking for the right teacher, experience, and character to train your athlete to improve their skills, he is your guy!!!!!!

(no details provided)

A talented coach who shares his knowledge, skills, and abilities with his students; allowing them to go above and beyond. My son is inspired by Coach Marvin and understands the foundation of field sports thanks to him!

He has my excited about learning field events! Great coaching style & technique!

Coach Lewis was a great coach for my son and his friend. Both in 8th grade and wanting to try out for the school track team. Shot and Discuss. In two lessons, Coach Lewis was able to prepare both boys with enough technique to make their school team. In their first meet, my son took 2nd in shot and 3rd in discuss. Without Coach Lewis this would not have happened. He is patient and knowledgeable and really cares.

Coach Lewis is a great coach! My daughter learned a lot from him on her first session. We look forward to continuing to work with Coach Lewis!
