I like giving back to the community. I like helping people achieve their goals!
The things I liked about running (track and field)with Coach Taylor was that he always had patience, always making sure we did what we had to do and being motivational.
I have been working with Coach Taylor for almost a year training to compete in the men's outdoor pentathlon. Coach Taylor is a great teacher and mentor. He has helped me to develop and execute both a short term and long term training plan that includes conditioning, event techniques and strength components. He has also coached me at competitions and helped me with strategy. Coach Taylor is organized, professional and really cares about his athletes. I would strongly recommend him to athletes that are serious about improving their performance.
Coach Taylor has been great. He was very responsive to my questions before the first meeting, and I've already seen great improvement in just the past two sessions. He takes time to explain everything, is always postiive and encouraging, and is helpful in all aspects of my training such as diet and nutrition. Enjoy working with him and look forward to working together over the coming months and years.
First, I assess how the client is feeling that day, whether they are sore or feeling 100% and ready to go. I would ask them how they are feeling. We would start with a dynamic warmup to get their hips, lower legs, and body feeling ready to workout. Then, depending on what the athletes needs are whether it is to increase their speed, be more explosive, getting a stronger core, or get more endurance we will work on whatever the athlete wants to develop. The workout portion might be focusing on technique or actually trying to get a workout in. Then after the workout portion of the plan is finished we will focus on stretching and the cool down to make sure the client can go home feeling great about the session and ready to go for the next one.
I work on CoachUp which is a very good private coaching website, check out my reviews to see how I do,
I charge my athletes 75 an hour, I am definitely worth my price.
I have done many sports growing up and I have always been good at being social and working with people. I want to give back by coaching and help other people achieve their dreams as I have.
All age groups
Make sure the coach you hire has a strong focus on technique. If you can't understand the fundamentals first you will hit a wall. You will not grow and achieve things in the long run.
Where you are located, what your budget looks like, if you are serious about training.
