What an incredible source of training information for elite level athletes or those who aspire to be! This is also a great find for the coaches or parents of students looking to help their budding athletes improve and excel. The writer obviously has integrity and character to go with the complete and comprehensive performance training he outlines and explains. And WOW! His client list reads like WHO's WHO. Very fresh and innovative information!
