During the last 20 years I lectured in many countries all over the world about topics like talent searching & development, training of youth athletes, elite athletes but also beginners. A good coach is able to coach everybody. If there is a secret in training it lies in analyzing the person you work with. Finding the right level to start with and make the next step. Where can the athlete improve and how? Not only the physical training is important, but also the management of the 20 hours a day they don’t train, but should rest and recover.
My next lecture is in Belfast: 6th & 7th October. Athletics North Ireland.
