I’ve had a few enquiries about running a weekend workshop….and when I say a few enquiries I mean just that…3 enquiries in total.
I’ve done a lot of seminars for different sporting organisations on different elements of training but it was always just bits and pieces.
I just want to put this out there for discussion and see what people think.
I was thinking of picking a weekend in the not too distant future (prior to Christmas but not this month) and running a workshop for those that were interested.
I’ve always said I could teach people 90% of what they ACTUALLY need to be able to do my job in a weekend and I thought that maybe we could put that to the test.
This is what I think the format should be….but am open to suggestions:
Screening and Assessment – This would be a chance to go through in detail and explain the various movement screens and assessments that I use and what can be taken from them.
Testing – I’ll detail the testing procedure and reasoning behind the tests that are used. We’ll actually do a full fitness test on the day so all the participants can experience it for themselves.
Exercises – This will be a chance to go through all the major movements and address all the key coaching points as well as a chance to look at the modifications and adjustments needed for different athletes.
Programming – This will be a chance to put everything into to practice. To discuss all the elements of programming and how they are integrated.
Now…what will make this day different. It will be hands on. Not only will it be a chance to work with other attendees but we’ll also work with ACTUAL athletes. It won’t be a talk fest. What I would hope is that we’d get a good few attendees and I can have a proper lunch provided as well as dinner and drinks on Saturday evening.
I just wanted to get this out there and get some feedback and see what people think of the idea…if there’s zero to no interest that’s fine as well…I still keep crapping on here on the blog. I just thought it would be a good chance for me to have to ‘put it all together’ and a chance for people to attend one of these type of seminars and actually walk away and be able to put things into practice straight away.
