At the beginning of each class I share with the students that my background leading me to fitness was playing soccer. I was fortunate to be able to catch up with my coach from university days: Mike Lupenec. I wanted to chat with him because I think what I learned as an athlete and as a coach prepared me really well to become a group instructor and a trainer, so I wanted to ask him some questions about his experiences working with all types of athletes both then and now. He shares some awesome insights and I really enjoyed our conversation.
