Dr. LeBolt’s experience as a parent and coach, combined with her expertise as a scientist, brings thousands of hours of observation, evaluation and research to the forefront in an easy-to-use resource guide for coaches. Fit2Finish provides insight for practitioners at all levels in the quest to make athletes as fit as possible with scientifically based programs that address the issues of anaerobic and aerobic energy systems, requirements and training; neuromuscular pathways; fitness prescription; identifying weakness; overload principle; overtraining; return-to-play; stretching, flexibility and recovery; periodization; and nutrition.
If a coach commits to being their best, being equipped with the science to back up their training is critical. Fit2Finish provides the information in a succinct and practical manner. You don’t need to be a scientist, but you can use this book as a pocket guide to better understand your athletes’ anatomy and physiology, the background of soccer kinesiology and the drills/training that you can use to maximize their performance in a safe way.
Fit2Finish provides sound practices in the science of fitness while giving coaches simple ways to incorporate these into their own training programs. Dr. LeBolt lays out a plan for coaches of both boys and girls, at all levels, in order to improve fitness in a safe manner. Most importantly, she does so without increasing the time demands on the coaches or the athletes.
