Clear training objectives

Justin makes clear his best practices for maintaining a fit athlete. He describes clear training methods and his use of regular evaluations makes it easy to figure out what type of training is best for the day at hand.

Highly Recommended!

Justin gives a very clear, concise, and realistic approach to tactical training. The programming overview gave great examples, photos, and videos for all styles of learning. As a tactical trainer myself and colleague of Justin's, we spend a lot of time researching and trying to find up-to-date information for the tactical population. This presentation is exactly what this field needs!
