About this pro

NLFAD strives to develop the complete athlete, believing one of the biggest attributes to program is injury prevention.

 

Through properly working through athletic progressions, building a solid fundamental foundation which to build upon, the sky is the limit regarding athletic domination!

 

Agility, balance, coordination, strength, quickness, speed, endurance, power, and sport specific movements are all keys to development of dominant athletes.

 

Supplemental Athletic Development to further enhance your athletes current season/sport.

 

Developing good training habits and work ethic, while improving coordination, balance, strength and speed will be extremely beneficial to long-term development as future athletes. The greatest leap in athletic formation takes place during youth years. My training will provide your young athlete with a strong foundation that they can build on throughout their athletic careers.

I enjoy developing and educating individuals to train their body's to be the most mechanically advanced on the field of competition. Especially young athletes, it cannot be a job in my opinion, there must be some enjoyment and inner drive involved other than domination against their peers. I enjoy the mental aspect of training and teach my athletes these concepts along with the physical development we progress through. Training is based on the INDIVIDUALS skill set!

I most enjoy seeing the work pay off, and the athletes face when it does just that!

    Coach Mike has an amazing ability to connect and educate young athletes. I have two elementary school age boys that have taken many lessons with Coach Mike and they continue to ask how soon till the next lesson. He always leaves them with a new pearl of knowledge and has them take ownership of their own progression. At the end of every lesson they will have some homework assignment to work on and the next lesson Coach Mike is always sure to follow up on how they did working towards the goals that the boys want to achieve. Rest assured that your athlete is in great hands with Coach Mike and he will continue to be my boys go to Coach.

    My son has greatly improved his baseball skills after working with Coach Taylor. His excellent knowlege of the game and skill paired with his love of working with kids makes him a #1 coach! Coach Taylor loves the game of baseball and wants every child to succeed. He does a great job of having fun while also teaching discipline for the sport!

    Coach T helped to rehab our 10 year old daughter after a significant shoulder injury. She is a super-committed swimmer and was so injured that she had to use a kickboard for practice for months. The entire time, she worked twice a week with Coach T on regaining strength, developing symmetry, and strengthening other areas of weakness. When she was given the green flag by her doctor, Coach T had transformed her. Her form, her times, her confidence, and her strength were off the charts. Her swim coach is so impressed that we've kept her working twice a week with Coach T. Her times are amazing for her age. Thank you, Coach T!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the personality fits, own your goals, make sure you are assessed physically prior to any exercise. You should be REDUCING injury risks while increasing your skill, strength, quickness and agility. (I like to include the mental part of the game as an athlete becomes older and understands the importance.)
