Bill Foran at MBSC

Just wanted to publicly thank Miami Heat Strength and Conditioning Coach Bill Foran for spending two hours at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning.¬† This was just an amazing opportunity for my staff and I. They say their is no substitute for experience and Bill proves that. I was riveted for two hours listening to a guy who has trained top level athletes and worked with some of the world’s best coaches over his 22 years with the Heat. Bill’s presentation was a wonderful combination of wisdom and story telling that took him from high school footbal coach to NBA strength and conditioning coach. The best thing about Bill ( besides the fact that he is a strengthcoach.com reader) is that he has continued to grow while spending 22 years at the highest level of sport. My staff got a rare treat to hear one of the best guys in our industry in such a small setting.

My staff had a great week as they also got to hear four great presenatations at the MBSC Winter Seminar on Saturday. This was by far the best one as all the speakers ( Eric Cressey, John Pallof, Brijesh Patel) get better every year.

Last but, not least I want to say thanks to a great Mentorship Group. This was also our Winter Mentorship Week. The group was treated to a week of NFL Prep as well as Bill’s talk.

All in all, a pretty good week at MBSC.
