Grounded Athlete was one for the books. I am able to utilize the knowledge and skillset Chip and his team taught us, from mobility exercises to core training, to building an athlete program with my own clientele. The course is very hands on, informational, and I felt prepared enough to bring this new skillset into the real world as soon as the course was finished. Thank you, Chip, Charleston, and the rest of the crew for such a great course. Highly recommend!

They really understand the complex problem of programming for athletes and put a lot of thought into every detail. This programming is not only great for sport athletes, but its methodologies can also apply to tactical and general populations.

If you work with rotational athletes…Grounded Athlete is a must! Not only was it filled with information on mobility, core work, upper body exercises, lower body exercises, and how to build a program to fit your athlete’s needs, but it also has extremely helpful labs. Labs were very interactive and put the information we were learning into real life experience. Chip, Charleston, and crew were incredibly knowledgeable and easy to learn from. I felt confident I could bring the information I learned and put it into practice with my athletes immediately after completing the course. I highly recommend this course for anybody looking to take their training to an elite level.
