NEXT SEASON STARTS NOW

March 23, 2017

Every March, College Basketball manages to offer us a month’s worth of excitement through a host of buzzer beaters, Cinderella stories, and impressive team achievements. For most college coaches, and just like their peers coaching high school and AAU teams; their next season begins when they exit this year’s tournament. Given how fast young players develop, very few coaches can predict the size, talent or skill of the athletes who join them on the court that first day of practice. So, they focus on what they can control and encourage their players to dedicate the Spring, Summer, and Fall to preparing to play next season.

AR-FIT COMBINES 9 OF THE TOP 20 FITNESS TRENDS FOR 2017

December 12, 2016

December 12, 2016 - For the past 11 years, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has annually surveyed thousands of fitness professionals from around the world to determine the health and fitness trends. The survey is intended to identify current and emerging trends in the commercial, clinical, community and corporate segments of the industry. It also recognizes which trends are falling out of favor and may have been more of a fad than a sustainable form of fitness.

MAKE NEXT SEASON YOUR BEST SEASON

December 6, 2016

The new year brings with it new resolutions and new goals, as athletes look forward to their next season. A preparation plan starts to take shape as knowledge gained from the last season and a timeline for pre-season training is established. The NCAA recommends, “a progressive comprehensive conditioning program at least four weeks before pre-season work-outs begin.” Meanwhile, Endurance athletes use the pre-season training block to build strength and stability so they may handle the rigors of their training program. Coaches and experienced athletes recognize that injury risk increases if an athlete has not achieved a high-level of fitness before the first day of practice, so most coaches encourage a pre-season training plan that builds training volume and intensity in a systematic and periodized manner.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE 2016 WORLD SERIES

November 3, 2016

Baseball’s post season just ended with the most watched World Series game in the last 25 years. It also ended a curse that had plagued one of baseball’s most storied franchises. There were numerous battles fought over this 7 game series and I’m not sure Hollywood could have written a better script. At the plate, batters were challenged by 100 MPH pitches and breaking balls that moved several feet. There were great battles in the field, as line drives, double plays and aggressive base running challenged every player’s skill. In the dugout, managers battled against each other and drew on their entire bench in an all-out effort to record a W. In a game where even the best hitters fail more often than they succeed, I’m struck by five things we learned from being caught-up with the Cubbies.
