Sports Performance Coaches we are here for you also, lets face it, you have limited time and a lot of athletes and group training is your only option. It is imperative to make sure that you are screening your athletes and giving them the proper corrective exercise and strength training progressions. We have witnessed a lot of different programs in our experience and have made a vow to help. We want to show you how to easily incorporate the same screening methods as the NFL Combine, US Military, and many professional and Division 1 teams.
Group fitness training is becoming a necessity, and if done correctly it can be an amazing thing. Unfortunately, most group exercise is very general, when the people it is designed to help are very specific. Group exercise injuries have skyrocketed and fitness professionals are getting a bad name. There are ways to get the same results as personal training if not better in group training. Smart Group Training is here to show you how.
