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.
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.
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 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.

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.
