The Functional Path is a path that had been traveled many times before but had fallen out of use in favor of smoother paved roads that promised faster and easier results. Seeking to follow and better define the functional path is a continuing journey, fortunately it is a journey that many have traveled before. Functional Path training is getting back to the basics of movement. It is learning to tune into the body and it’s inherent wisdom to produce rhythmic flowing movement.
The mission of this program is to develop a cadre of experts to define the field of Athletic Development by educating professionals in foundational principles and methodology. Apprentorship = Apprenticeship + Mentorship, combines the features of both into a unique interactive blend of theory and practice in a five-day residential coaching school. This is an opportunity to observe, question, and explore the application of the Gambetta Method - Systematic Sport Development Model of training and injury rehabilitation.
Just getting in hours will not do it. Anyone can go through
the motions, huff and puff and look like they are working. Just doing work is
not good enough; you must train with ICE
– Intensity, Concentration, Effort.
If you consistently achieve a high ice score eight to ten on a ten-point scale.
A score of ten being frigid, ice cold then you will the workout. If you can
consistently win workouts then you give yourself a chance to perform in
competition, remember there are no guarantees. Champions are champions
everyday, when there are no crowds, no coaches, and no teammates, just you
against the clock or the weight. It is all about the will to prepare.
