What we have found is that programming is only one of the pieces that makes a successful athlete. Following the best program will only get you so far. Cleaning up technique and performing the movements as flawlessly as possible—especially in a sport which rewards efficiency and punishes wasteful efforts—is what differentiates the average athlete from the truly elite. This is the option to that end.
The daily programming provided on Deep Performance and Barbell is free but should you want something more, we offer remote coaching. Cleaning up technique and performing the movements as flawlessly as possible—especially is a hard task and one that takes the eyes of a trained professional with an objective eye.
Here are the basics of how our remote coaching works…
What is expected of you, the athlete:
Moving forward I will need to following pieces of information from you:
You need to connect to the following link and set up payment for the remote coaching. This will automatically set you up for payment each month. Once you are setup I will receive a confirmation email to begin the coaching.
Follow the programming as best as possible. I may give you some exercises to complete in warmups and in off days to help with bad habits or movement patterns but otherwise follow the blog to a tee.
Daily Emails: I expect to receive a daily email from you with a summary of how the workout went, strengths and weaknesses, and at least two videos of your lifts. You will receive a response back from me (or one of my coaches) via email in 36-48 hours. I will analyze 2 of your lifts through Coach’s Eye. Please send me your videos in a file attached to the email.
I also want to know both your current stats and your future goals. Send me a list of your max effort lifts (and videos if possible) and a handful of your benchmark times. Also include where you would like to see those improve to in the next 6 months to a year.
Depending on the volume of remote coaching clients I will either personally be coaching you, or I may have one of my coaches at Crossfit Deep Ellum assist me with your coaching. In the case that I ask one of my coaches to take your coaching, you will be introduced to him or her personally.
