Training Program for Cystic Fibrosis – Weight training for Pro Baseball – Taylor Lewis Baseball Program
Taylor Lewis trains professional baseball players, and he trains adults with cystic fibrosis. In this talk, he explains the similarities and differences, and describes how to use this knowledge with general public training clients.
“Sometimes we tend to over elaborate our goals, we tend to think too much on how we’re supposed to get there when we’re not even working on the actual process of taking baby steps.
“As strength coaches and personal trainers, when our clients come in we need to focus on the present, what we can accomplish now, and focus on what we can control because once again they’re going to come in and say they failed or they ate ice cream or they did something. But we have the ability right then to just focus on the next 30 minutes to an hour or whatever that time session may be—to work on metabolic expenditure and work on the positive aspect of this. The more positive you are in that hour, the greater chances they’re going to make a better decision down the road.
“That focuses the whole idea of the 90% rule—make sure we focus on 90% importance in their lives, and don’t focus on anything else. ~ Taylor Lewis
