Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to take my son Josh down to Adelaide to experience a few days in the life of an NBL player.
Adam Murphy, strength conditioning coach to the Adelaide 36ers is an old mate of mine…having met him in many of my workshops I presented in the days I worked at Fitness First. I contacted him to see if we could set up a meet with the 36ers and show Josh the ins and outs of the basketball game at a national high performing athletic level.
In appreciation for this opportunity I assessed and wrote a corrective exercise and strength program for 4 of the 36ers players – Nathan Sobey, Mitch Creek, Anthony Drmic and Matthew Hodgson. As you can hear in the youtube video (see below), the guys share with you, their testimonials on the findings I carried out in their sessions. (Pictured – Mitch Creek being assessed by Donal Carr)
Training athletes has been a passion of mine for my 28 years in the business and Im no stranger to writing corrective programs, balancing out any anomolies and rehabilitating the body and conditioning the person to function so that they perform at their highest potential, however, when you get to see and hear about the results, its incredibly humbling and a reminder of why I do what I do. Life changing!
You guys rocked it this season! Congratultions Adelaide 36ers 2018 Grand Finalists!
Josh and I thank you Joey Wright – coach to the 36ers AND the team who generously gave up your time to spend with Josh and to Adam for organising the awesome opportunity. It was a fantastic weekend and an incredible experience for one passionate 15yr old basketballer!
Particular thanks to Mitch, Nathan, Matthew And Anthony for the shout out!
