Become a Coach

Balanced Athlete Training with Johnny Gillespie

Becoming a Balanced Athlete Coach

Balanced Athlete coaches are trained to guide students in quality of movement and intentional mind/body integration.

Our program can be incorporated into multiple settings that include physical therapy, strength and conditioning centers, fitness clubs, personal training studios, yoga centers, CrossFit Boxes, and physical education classes. Our system can be used for one-on-one coaching or in group training environments.

Balanced Athlete methodology presents advanced understanding of human structure and movement in simple and digestible terms, providing depth of knowledge while presenting understandable theory that anyone can learn.
