One thing that often gets overlooked on our website is technique. We all aren’t born like Ashton Eaton or Melissa Bishop. But you can train like them.
Traveling to a running camp or getting 1-on-1 help from professionals can be time consuming and expensive. That’s where we come in. We have over 850 training and technique videos from professional athletes and coaches alike.
Take it from Julius Yego aka Mr. Youtube, sometimes to win Gold all you need to do is sit down in front of a computer.
Over 75 athletes may sound like a lot. You may not know where to begin?
Maybe start with “The World’s Greatest Athlete” and 2015 World Champion Ashton Eaton. Not a bad place to start. He breaks down each event and his overall approach to competing in 10 events over a two day span.
