I had a basketball trainer growing up, he was more than a coach, he was also a mentor, now he's one of my best friends. As a player, I also studied all-time great players and practiced their best moves religiously, 2-3 hours a day. From my research, trial and error, I designed a training program that helps undersized players maximize their abilities.
I now enjoy passing on the knowledge I've gained to the next generation of hoopers.
I have trained entry level middle school and high school players with goals to make their school teams, varsity standouts eyeing then next level, college and pro players home for the summer working to stay in shape and sharpen their skills.
I know I'm just one small part of a large team helping these players but... I'm proud off the high school players that I've helped get onto college basketball teams and of the college players I helped to play professional basketball.
My adivce would be to ask all the questions you need before scheduling a workout. Also, do one workout before committing to multiple sessions. Make sure you feel comfortable with that person.
