My name is DJ Shuler and I come from a basketball family. I've trained clients since I were a Sophomore in High School - starting with players on the girls basketball team who were a top tier team in the state during that time. I also trained my younger siblings as my first clients. For the the most part, I became a student of the game at a very young age and found passion in helping others when I felt there was a skill that could be critiqued or strenghthed. I simply do this for my love of the game.
I enjoy the process. In the midst of working for anything, there are challenges and with that builds character. It will be tough and there are moments when I've felt like giving up, but what defines a champion is when we overcome that tough moment and keep pushing to finish. It's a great feeling of self appreciation when I look back and know I didn't give up - especially when the results show.

First, I would open conversation with the client to get to know them from a interpersonal perspective. I feel it's important to know them as a person first. I want to know their personal goals and gage their confidence level so that I have an idea of how to go about the training from a cultural stand point.
Secondly, I would put them through some drills to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.
Thirdly, the rest is history.
My college major is communications, so I have good understanding on how to communicate with different personalities and also how to create a comfortable atmosphere for the client.
As far training, I walked on to my college basketball team - which was one of the most competitive expereinces I've ever had. I'm confident that I understand what it takes to physcally train and work hard to accomplish a goal.
