Functional Path Training Principles

These are the principles that I use to guide me on journey on the Functional Path:

  1. Have a current accurate road map – Start with a plan, execute it, and evaluate it constantly;
  2. Think big picture – Build and rebuild the complete athlete;
  3. Fundamental movement skills must be mastered before specific sport skills can be acquired and advanced  training undertaken;
  4. Learn to use the ground – Build & rebuild the athlete from the ground up;
  5. Train the core as the center of the action;
  6. Train sport appropriate – You are what you train to be;
  7. Build a work capacity base appropriate for your sport;
  8. Train Linkage – Connect toenails to fingernails;
  9. Think Long-Term – Training is cumulative;
  10. The individual athlete is the focus – Recognize, train and rehab the individual;
