Listen: Baseball, Soccer, Michigan discussed on Mark Bell's Power Project
"Problem or not a problem at a lacking guests mill school PE, and my kids my kids couldn't do things that I thought were normal like you should be able to do pull ups shield clam rope should be a la-. Do these kind of things, and we started looking around for ways to help our kids get better and some lacrosse functional. You're like what are what's wrong with my offspring? Shouldn't be possible. I mean, they should be genetic freaks. No, I needed get them beyond what I could. So I'm the stand look rope. And like, well, I don't know how I'm gonna get up there. But what my kids be able to do it, and we found functional fitness and functional fitness for us. Always was about wasn't about having the kids workout in the gym. But was about helping them within the gym to do whatever they wanted to side the in that really kind of the Genesis how we got to where we were. We were. Yeah. I think it's it's, you know, it's great to be working with kids because it's confusing on like, you know, if you have a young child, or even if you have a niece or nephew, and you're trying to figure out how do I get them involved in something where bacon improve on their sport? I think the only thing people can kind of come up with is to send them to something that has more of that sport. So they sent him to like a camp or something like that. Strengthen conditioning is kind of not really thought about much especially with how young some of the kids that you guys work with how how young are some of the kids you guys work with. Down to down to three years old. Doesn't get much younger than that. Yeah. Yeah. Really? Right. We don't want to diapers pretty much, right? But right when they really start to explore movement. That's when we're starting to work with them. And at that age, it's really all about just exploration them learning how to interact with their environment. And once they can do that officially then we start to layer in, you know, motor patterns, okay? Now, how can we get you to interact with your environment correctly in a way that you're not going to injure yourself and kind of set it up in a way that when the parents do take them to those camps because it's inevitable. Right. They're gonna take them to those camps. I want you get better at baseball or soccer that might make them better player, but they're always going to be a safe player. And then as they start to progress, you know, they gain gain some different abilities as they get older, it's really focusing on strength because we found strength is just a base for for all fitness. And it it positively impacts every other physical skill. If you could make somebody strong than you can make them. Really that transfers over to any other endeavor that we try to accomplish inside of the gym or outside of the gym takes village to raise a child. And I think in this case when you're talking about trying to have a kid be successful in sport. This also kind of takes village, it takes it takes the coach might take the experts, you know, strength conditioning. It might take a a lot of involvement from the parents, you guys have involvement with the parents as well as maybe the kids baseball, coach or soccer. Coach sure starts with the parents because the parents have to bring the kids to the gym. Kind of circling back to what you said before people straight finishing for kids is. The say like the the lost piece like people see that. If they want to be good at baseball. They should put them in baseball. Michigan the baseball camps. But really the what's the base the basis moving. Well, the basis being strong base of being a little ply those things then to whatever sports you want. So really what we want to be is that base?."
