Welcome to build the basics 101.

It’s been a long time coming! 

I’m extremely excited to be launching a well-rounded S&C program for the combat athlete and hobbyist alike. 

Build the basics 101 utilises principles and systems that I use with my clients daily and is a great entry-level platform to start with on your own before transitioning into online coaching. 

This is a flexible program that can be implemented in addition to your sport specific training, or used on its own as a complete training program. 

This program is ideal for Combat sport Athletes and hobbyists who are looking to enhance athletic performance and want to be well-rounded on the mats. 

The purpose of this program is to teach you how to move effectively under load through a diverse range of foundational movement patterns.

You can also expect to address any mobility deficits along the way to help tackle the demands of your sport, making you are more well-rounded robust athlete.

Keep in mind that you do not have to be a combat sport athlete to benefit from this program.

Build Strength, Resilience & Athleticism
You can expect to build a base of strength and resilience through a diverse range of foundational movement patterns to enhance overall athletic performance that will carry over on to the mats.

Enhance Mobility
There is no doubt that combat sports can be brutal on the body, you are expected to produce force in vulnerable positions that require a great degree of mobility and flexibility. This program will have your mobility covered each week to tackle the demands of your sport.

Structured Training
This is a structured, flexible program that can be used in conjunction with your sport, or performed on its own as a complete program. No more thinking or guessing, you just have to show up and put in the work.
