New DVD by Roberto Forzoni
Dramatically improve your team's performance with the help of an
and motivational expert.
If you haven't heard of Roberto before, you soon will. As well as being British tennis
star Andy Murray's personal trainer at the recent US Open tournament, he's
with some of the top soccer teams and sportspeople in the world
Roberto's techniques are a proven success and he's now one of the most in-demand
fitness, motivational and performance coaches in world sport. In this new DVD,
Roberto provides you with the information and skills to coach your
players to a new
level of fitness specifically designed for success in soccer.
Chapters on the DVD include:
- drills for foot speed and quickness
- drills for lateral movement
- combining movements
- speed and change of direction
- developing explosive movements
- drills for coordination
The players working with Roberto on the DVD range in age from 9 years to 17 years and the drills and exercises featured are suited to all their needs.
The DVD is expertly directed and uses slow-motion, highlighting, close-ups and other production techniques to ensure that you completely understand the points being made.
The audio commentary by Roberto is clear and relevant and will help you in your communication with your players.
Motivate Your Team
Roberto's success as a coach is easy to understand when you see him in action on the DVD. He's a great communicator who finds it easy to get his ideas across.
It's this communication style which makes this DVD more than just a series of fitness exercises. It's a subtle thing, but Roberto has the knack of speaking to his players in a way which encourages and supports them, giving them the information they need but, crucially, the confidence and freedom to maximise the experience.
The players are clearly enjoying the training. Roberto doesn't badger them. He always uses positive language, even when he has to correct errors. He works through all the exercises himself first, showing the players what to do. He then keeps a careful eye on each player as they work through the moves, occasionally offering advice and fine-tuning their performance.
There's a great lesson here for all coaches. Attention to detail is rewarded by a dedication to the task at hand on the part of the players. This level of motivation is what we should strive for as coaches. Your players will respect you for it and will work all the harder.
