An Entire Team of Coaches

One of the most unique features of our Virtual Coaching solution is having all of our staffed coaches in house. While many online coaching companies employ coaches in varying geographic locations, 100% of our coaches work under the same roof. This affords us (and you) opportunities far beyond traditional remote coaching services. One of which is our weekly Team Review meeting. As a team, we sit down and discuss client’s movement videos, programs, and areas of opportunity a single pair of eyes might have scanned over. Through this entire process the assigned coach will be your primary point of contact to assure clean and consisted communication and follow through. We all bring something a little different to the table and we love being able to bounce ideas off one another in real time. This is not only a commitment to ensuring that we put our best foot forward, but also create and foster the best environment to learn and grow as a coaching staff.

Movement Mastery

When we approach the training process we view it globally. There are many complex systems that integrate to complete a training program. One of the pillars of our Virtual Coaching solution is pursuing complete control of human movement. We aren’t talking about simply throwing a few cues at you and sending you on your way. This involves a thorough assessment process which includes diving into previous injury history, identifying high risk movements, reviewing training footage (in our Team Review), and building a plan to get you pain free and moving the way you were intended to. Ultimately, we strive to come away from the assessment process with a complex understanding of your history and current needs. The movement plan is far from static. Just like the training plan, you will receive updates based on your progress. You will be assigned pre-training and off day movement prep drills with soft tissue mobilizations included. You also receive a free membership to Kabuki.MS.

Velocity and Data Based Training

Every athlete has a story to tell. Not in the sense of storytelling, but from a platform of individual differences. It’s true, human DNA is 99.5% identical. We all adapt very similarly when exposed to stress. But the things that separate us when the training plan is concerned are goals, experience, stress tolerance, injury history, psyche, commitment, morphological development, health, and physical acclimation. With all these differences, we must control as much actionable data as possible. Our training logs are housed in excel and pack a robust ‘matrix’ that collects and sorts your training data. This is far beyond sets x reps x load = volume. We collect 36 (and that number is growing) unique data points organized to easily view and analyze trends in progress and performance. We have also pioneered the use of velocity as an objective marker for autoregulation. We use every tool at our disposal when it comes to the development of our athletes.

Our Virtual Coaching Staff

Our coaches practice what they preach. As competitive athletes, they’ve been in the trenches training, competing, and fighting for strength day-in and day-out. It isn’t just about being athletes however. Each coach is a part of our team because they bring the best combination of knowledge, drive, and a deep desire for personal development. Above anything else they are passionate about providing a high-level of service to their athletes. Rest assured, you will be in good hands with our coaches.

Coaching Tailored for Success

We believe the coaching of physical development involves much more than a spreadsheet with the exercises/sets/reps to be accomplished that week. We see our coaching process as a functional symphony of movement efficiency, program design, skilled coaching, and good ol’ fashioned hard work.

Common Questions

Here are some of the more common questions we receive about our virtual coaching services. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out and email us at coaching@kabukistrength.com.

Upon completing your on-boarding documents you will be assigned a coach who best fits your needs. If there is a specific coach you would like to work with you may include that information in your initial questionnaire.

VBT stands for ‘Velocity Based Training’. This is a training methodology that uses the objective variable of velocity to determine the load an athlete should use. Velocity isn’t the only auto-regulatory variable we use, but it is the primary one used in main movements.

The primary means of communication with your coach will be via email. Skype calls may be setup pre-competition and as otherwise needed. Your coach will also learn a lot about you by viewing your training data housed in our robust Excel training log matrix. We are incredibly dedicated to the communication process with our athletes and as such have a committed 24-hour turnaround time when receiving and sending training updates.

Training plans are built in our powerful Excel training logs. You will be emailed training updates at the end of each written block of training. Each training block is between 1-4 weeks. Updates may still be sent weekly even if training is written further out.

Virtual Coaching services are $250 per month. You will only be charged after your on-boarding call when coaching begins. During the wait period between signup and client on-boarding, you will not be charged!

As part of our training package we build custom movement plans for each of our athletes. These plans come with specific prep work for the primary lifts and off day movement drills. Along with the movement plan, our coaches will view and give weekly critiques on submitted training footage.

At face value, this is an impossible question for us to answer. We take immense pride in the development of our athletes and as such, each training plan is built from the ground up. We do not deal in cooking cutter programs or assign multiple athletes to one program. This is a truly individualized solution that accounts for your current needs and long term development.

Chris does not directly handle any athletes, but is available as a coaching consultant and is heavily active in our client review process. Even though Chris doesn’t directly handle athletes, he is still available for 1 on 1 Skype calls with current clients.

We currently do not offer a nutrition product with our Virtual Coaching service. Our coaches are available to give direction and advice on nutrition (including weight cuts) but we do not write out full plans. We are interested in offering nutrition as a standalone or an add on product in the future however.

We work with a huge variety of individuals. We have multiple Powerlifting All-Time world record holders and 100% novice lifters on our coaching roster. Our service is not just for competitive athletes either! We believe in supporting anyone interested in physical development.
