Have you ever wondered what the best way to warm-up at a competition was? Or why we warm-up and cool down? Or what the big deal was about core strength, foam rolling or even why stronger is better? Or what the heck activation is and why is your coach telling you to do it? Or how to train correctly to prevent injuries?
Athletes, parents, and coaches all have these questions and this training camp is your opportunity to have them answered as well as learn how to do many of the skills yourself in a hands-on training seminar.
Golden Gate Fencing Center is bringing in a world-class strength and conditioning coach who is very familiar with fencing having worked with the Canadian national women’s foil team for the last 3 years and helped them achieve their best ever results.
François “Frank” Raymond will take you through proper warm-up sequences, power exercises, and landing mechanics, bodyweight strength training, injury prevention skills, core work and cool down and foam rolling techniques in a hands-on small group format. Then you will have a chance to put what you learned into practice by fencing and focusing on physical and mental activation and reactivation- two very important skills needed for tournament success.
Frank is a dynamic, fun, and challenging coach who will bring out the best in you while teaching you the latest and greatest techniques to bring your game to it’s highest levels.
