Jeremy Frisch on Plugging the Holes of Youth Athletic Development

According to youth sports coach, Jeremy Frisch, playing sports can open up whole new worlds for any person.

Jeremy’s the Director and Owner of Achieve Performance Training, a physical fitness facility in Clinton, Massachusetts that focuses on youth athletic development.

Jeremy believes that it’s essential for kids to explore experiences, making it more critical for them to enjoy sports and athleticism.

But how do you make physical training more engaging for the younger generation?

Jeremy’s secret: fun and creativity.

Jeremy joins me today to discuss how coaches and trainers can evolve their youth athletic training programs.

He explains how he divides and structures classes at his gym to ensure that every kid, regardless of age or skill, has an amazing experience.

He discusses why coaches don’t need expensive obstacle equipment to make training and exercise enjoyable for the younger generation.

And last but not least, he shares his advice for coaches who want to make their youth training program more dynamic and underscores the value of incorporating fun and play in training athletes of all ages.


If you tell a kid ‘you’re going to run 300 yards right now,’ the kid will be miserable. But, if we put it in a game and disguise it as fun, the kids won’t even realize how much they’ve run. – Jeremy Frisch
