My sessions are all pre-planned, but based on how I perceive the client to be feeling in terms of readiness, activity levels throughout the day and their general well being, sessions may alter. I always focus on improving no matter how minimal the improvement may be, and how long the clients taken to achieve this. Technique is key for me. Working on technique whilst under fatigue is how I train my clients. I base a lot of my training off squatting mechanics and trying to improve application of force. through speed and agility work.


Generally working with football clients, my aim is to train them of a minimum 3x a week. One session being Gym work, another being a ball/technique session and finally a pool session, which is surprisingly probably the hardest out of the three sessions I like to do.

    Chris was great with my 10-year-old, he customized a plan according to what we discussed. He pushed her to bring out her potential and after a few minutes understood her opportunities. We will definitely continue to have my daughter do more sessions with Chris.

    Chris is an excellent coach. He had a variety of ways to isolate an improve individual skills. He was willing to adjust his coaching to work on the specific areas my son requested and also targeted skills that he saw as needing work. We will definitely be calling on Chris again.

    Coach Chris is exceptionally inspiring. No one can match his passion for the game – at the highest quality level, of course. He has a sharp eye for assessing a player’s natural strengths and weaknesses. As a teacher, Chris has a unique method for breaking down the specific skills needed to succeed in every aspect of the game.

    He walks through each of those skills with his students in bite-sized modules. In doing so, his student learns not only the skill, but an elevated look at the ‘how’, and even the ‘why’. Chris proves the value of the skill set empirically, with examples of recurring game situations. He transforms those chaotic moments into smaller mini-games, in which a set of exact skills that will guarantee success is taught. The first payoff is that the student learns each of the skill-modules one by one, thus is instantly a better player.

    The long game payoff is even better: the student will also learn “how to think about the game”. Once that lesson sets in, students can think about the game and “how to self-develop a needed skill” to transcend whatever level they are on.

    Chris’s students, thus, will probably become the best player on their team, or in their league, if they take to this style. Most importantly, his students will have a path to becoming the best player that they can be. Training with Chris is like training into and out of the passing lane of the highway, always moving smoothly, quickly, safely, enjoyably!

    Chris has been great with my son in his sessions. He is always on time and well prepared, and the sessions are tailored specifically towards what my son wants or needs to work on. Chris is very flexible and easy to communicate with, and he brings some unique methods of working with a player to the training. We look forward to working with him for the rest of the year.
