The goal of this book is to define the field of Functional Athletic Development. The content reflects my 38 years of experience as a coach coupled with the applied sport science. 

I am a coach, so it is written with the coach and practitioner in mind. This is not a cookbook of exercises and workouts, it is a work designed to explain the principles that underlie those workouts that make them successful.
