It’s tough when your body is your office, your corporation, your manufacturing facility, your industry. Most people go to work. An athlete is the work. Sure, equipment may be part of the game. A lot of athletic equipment is more about providing safety than enhancing performance in the game. Shoes are an example of equipment that may enhance game play. The rest is your body being in control to play the game. It is important for athletes to have a personal trainer, and Coach Landow is probably the best personal trainer Denver has ever seen.
The facility he provides even has the Elite Sports University that offers online courses in the latest in strength training and conditioning for your sport. You train differently if you are a golfer, swimmer, football player or hockey player. Whatever your game is, there is a way for you to get better at it. Personal training begins with a critical look at what you are doing, or not doing for that matter, now. Sometimes an athlete’s mistakes are not so much what he is doing wrong than what he is just not doing. It takes an expert who intimately knows what bodies need to do in each sport and how to get your body to do it the best way.
People talk about natural hitters in baseball or a natural swing in golf. They talk about an arm on a quarterback as if he was born to throw the football. That is all nonsense. You learn how to play your sport. You learn how to make your body move in the way it needs to move to master your game. Sure, some body types are better suited to certain sports, but there are plenty of exceptions to any rule you can come up with. No matter where you stand in your game, you can always do better by getting some help from an experienced personal trainer.
