Jeremy Frisch on Young Athlete Development

Jeremy Frisch is the owner and director of Achieve Performance Training in Clinton, Mass. Prior to that, he was the assistant strength and conditioning coach for the Holy Cross athletic department.

In this show, Jeremy and I discuss his philosophy on training young athletes, how to work with sports clubs to improve athletic development, and the big movements he wants every athlete to develop.

It’s obvious that Jeremy is passionate about helping our young athletes, so I hope you enjoy the show.
