BUILD A BETTER ATHLETE
Welcome to MOVE Online. Our facility is based in Clearwater, FL, and our online clients span across the US, Canada, and Europe.
We launched the online coaching system to meet requests from athletes all over – not just those with the ability to show up at the facility. Our training methods are highly effective, and our collective experience as coaches is rare in the Strength & Conditioning industry. We know what we’re doing, we get results every time, and we walk the talk.
ABOUT BUILD A BETTER ATHLETE (BBA)
We’ve noticed something interesting over the past few years in our work with athletes. Many of them are very advanced in their sport, yet lack what we call “basic body / movement IQ”. Meaning, they may be great golfers or hockey players, but can’t perform a split squat, back bridge, ring dip, or, the middle splits. They simply lack the strength and mobility to execute these movements.
Does that matter if they aren’t bodyweight athletes? YES!
The inability to perform these movements (among others) in addition to “early specialization” in their sport WILL lead to a lesser, more injury prone athlete. Especially in the developmental years. Think about this for a second – how do you expect an athlete to perform well, over long periods of time, if:
- Their ankles are tight;
- Their hips aren’t capable of split squats, middle splits, front splits or resting squat;
- Their spine is unable to handle flexion and extension under load;
- Their shoulders are tight and not strong enough to handle ring training;
- They can’t do pull ups.
After an initial discovery call, we determine the correct assessment videos to put in place. We look at 3 main areas:
These vids give us valuable insight into the athlete, and their strengths and weaknesses. For example, we may see clearly that the athlete can do push ups, but has poor shoulder extension mobility. Over time, this deficit will cause shoulder injuries. We may also see a strong “resting squat”, which indicates excellent hip and ankle mobility – but a poor barbell split squat. This indicates poor balance and single leg strength – clearly, a problem for sport, as all sports rely on excellent single-leg strength.I'm interested!
