Kimberly K. says, "Kimberly Kennedy Flight Attendant "Before I began training with Ricky, I wasn't considered overweight. I had been working out most of my adult life, so I was fairly fit, but I couldn't say I was pleased with my body. I can't remember a time when I didn't believe I could stand to lose 5 or 10 more pounds. Most women between the age of 18-65 share that common theme. It appears to be permanently etched in our minds. I'm sure there are a lot of women who were like me, from size 2 thru 22 and beyond, who wished they could find a great pair of jeans that didn't include the proverbial "MUFFIN TOP." And though I read the same articles in over 15 different magazines in the last 15 years I still couldn't seem to "flatten my abs in two weeks", "lift my butt in 5 minutes a day" or get "lean thighs with 10 NEW moves" ( I dare you to look at a magazine cover right now). I tried diets, ab machines, and I even tried to get a "Smokin' Hot Body" in 90 days. Unfortunately none of those methods really worked or had any long term effect. I was left feeling defeated and unsatisfied. I needed something different. I remember, of all days, it was Thanksgiving, and a friend of mine who is very fit and looks like a model on a magazine cover, recommended I work out with Ricky. I was mildly skeptical. I wasn't really sure how working out with a trainer was going to be any different than everything else I tried, but since nothing else bought me the success I craved, I gave it a shot. WOW! I was blown away! Ricky was able to show me all the things I needed to do to get the lasting results of my dreams. Yes, I had to work at it but believe me, MEASURABLE CHANGE is a great motivator. It's even a lot of fun, especially when I try on jeans. No more "MUFFIN TOP"! The diet and fitness industry rakes in billions of dollars a year by playing on peoples emotions. They want you to believe that this NEW and IMPROVED way of working out is the one size fits all answer. Ricky taught me a realistic approach to health and fitness and he showed me what works. If you're a world class athlete looking for an edge, a parent, if you travel on business, if you if you are sick and tired of wasting time on the new fitness"FLAVOR OF THE MONTH" craze, or even if you have never worked out before, let Ricky show you how to reach your potential and meet your goals. He is well versed in the psychology and physiology of the body. He knows what it takes to STRENGTHEN, SHAPE and FUEL your body and he teaches you how it all works in harmony, one with the other. Of all of his many qualities Ricky has the UNPARALLELED ability to evaluate each client to specifically design a program that works to help you achieve YOUR individual goals. Ricky showed me how to incorporate fitness into my life. I no longer worry that I should lose 5 or 10 more pounds. I feel strong, confident, beautiful and pleased with my body. I think he's the BEST!" " Read more

Your Basketball Training questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much does a personal basketball trainer cost?

The average cost of a personal basketball trainer ranges from $30 to $150 per hour for one-on-one sessions. The cost can be influenced by factors such as the player's level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), the trainer's experience and expertise, and the location where the training takes place.

Additionally, small group sessions of 2 to 4 children can cost $30 to $50 per session on average, while large group training of 4+ kids can cost $20 to $40 per session on average

How do you train for basketball?

A well-rounded basketball training regimen should include skill-specific workouts, strength and conditioning exercises, and a structured training program. Skill development includes shooting workouts, ball handling drills, and training tailored to your position, whether you’re a guard or post player.

Strength and conditioning exercises such as aerobic training and strength training for primary muscle groups like hips, quads, and glutes are critical. A structured 6-week training program that emphasizes form, technique, and skill progression should improve your game.

How many hours do basketball players train a week?

Basketball players, especially those aiming to improve their skills, may train for around 10 to 15 hours per week, depending on the level of their game. The specific distribution of training hours across skill development, strength training, and other aspects can vary based on individual needs and goals.

However, much of that training time does not require an instructor. Shooting hoops, working out at the gym, and playing pick-up games all count toward the total training time.

Is strength training important for basketball?

Yes, strengthtraining is essential for basketball players as it aids in the development of speed strength, absolute strength, and core strength. It boosts blast impulse, the ability to generate force rapidly, crucial for activities like jumping for rebounds and swift changes in direction.

Additionally, strength training enhances power output and agility, allowing players to respond quickly to on-court situations and maintain an edge over their opponents.

What questions should I ask a basketball trainer?

Ask these questions when picking a basketball trainer to help you meet your goals:

  • What is your background and experience in basketball training?
  • Have you worked with players at my skill level or position before?
  • What is your coaching philosophy and training style?
  • How do you tailor your training programs to individual needs?
  • What specific skills and aspects of the game do you emphasize in your training sessions?
  • How do you address both physical and mental aspects of player development?
  • Do you conduct initial assessments to identify strengths and areas for improvement?
  • How do you track and measure a player's progress over time?
  • How do you incorporate injury prevention strategies into your training programs?
  • What steps do you take to ensure the well-being of your athletes?
  • What is your availability for training sessions?
  • How do you handle scheduling and potential conflicts?
  • How do you communicate with players and provide feedback?
  • What role do players and parents/guardians play in the feedback process?
  • What are your fees and payment structure?
  • Are there any long-term commitments or package deals available?
  • Can you provide references from previous clients or players you have trained?
  • How do you work with players to set and achieve realistic goals?
  • What expectations do you have for players in terms of commitment and effort?
