In Velocity Philosophy we interview leading experts in the field of strength coaching who implement velocity based training. Our aim is to use case studies/user stories to try and move away from theory and science to hear actual instances of VBT implementation – the good, the bad and the ugly. Guests are highly experienced in using the GymAware system, so we’ll be able to look at all the different ways coaches are leveraging GymAware and VBT concepts to improve performance in the gym, on the field and even to enhance their own professional careers.
